Happy Tuesday everyone! It's that time again where I share with you some awesome music inspired by our talented designers and their collections. 

Today's Tune Tuesday is inspired by Sarah Watson's premiere collection, Luxe in Bloom. Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you Extravagarden!

With its gorgeous organic blooms and geometric fusions, its only fitting that the ethereal Florence Welch lead this playlist along with the likes of Feist and Sia. So sit back and relax, or take a stroll through your garden with this harmonious playlist that invites you to listen!

For more music inspired by this lush collection, check out our Spotify playlist! Subscribe to the playlist to add your own songs that make you feel the Extravagarden vibe or let us know which songs we should add!

Until next time...

From my musical ears to yours,

Happy Tuesday everyone! How was everyone's weekend and what have you all been up to?! My wekeend was pretty eventful! I went to the circus that was in town this weekend and took a quick trip to the fabric store for a few "beginner's items" that I was missing. Yes, you heard correctly. I'm attempting to sew and it's proving to be a lot of fun! I've already made a pillow for my puppy's head (because if not, it's just a giant pin cushion) and a pointy kitty that actually stands. I'm super excited about it all and I can't wait to start sewing some more!

Per Anais' request, I must show you my creations :)

After Picture Note: The pillow has been stuffed and no puppies were harmed in the making :)

It's that time again when the sweet sounds of shared music fill your ears. Today's Tune Tuesday is Elegant Exuberance!

Splendor1920_AlbumCover
Inspired by Bari J.'s collection, 'Splendor 1920', Elegant Exuberance brings together an array of musical artists that range from the classic Edith Piaf to the musicians of today. With a little Parisian flair and those classic upbeat sounds that are timeless, each song adds its own little slice of pie to the 1920s feel. Check it out!

Have Spotify? So do we! Check out our Elegant Exuberance playlist where we will continue to add more songs inspired by this decadent collection! Feel free to subscribe to the playlist and add songs of your own! We'd love to hear your suggestions!

So, until next Tuesday...

From my musical ears to yours,

Hello everyone! Happy New Year from the AGF family! I hope everyone had a wonderful New Year's and that all of you didn't have too much of that Alegria Sangria that Megan was kind enough to share with us.

Well, it's a new year and that means New Year's resolutions. My New Year's resolution for work is to begin writing more on this blog! For those of you that don't know me, my name is Kat and I work in the Design department for Art Gallery Fabrics. I am also the video editor of the company. You can read a little bit more about me here, where I introduced myself on the blog about a year ago and never wrote again (hence the creation of the resolution).

So, as to start my New Year's resolution, I've decided to begin a NEW musical section on the blog called Tune Tuesdays. Why Tune Tuesdays you may ask? Well, I'm a huge fan of music and I'm always inspired whenever I'm listening to David Bowie or a little bit of the Bee Gees (I have a huge musical selection that varies from AC/DC to disco). Plus, the name Tune Tuesdays sounds catchy!

Whenever the time comes for us to make a new video, we always go through one process that has us scratching our heads: song selection. Most of the time, we end up with a batch of songs for each video and wish that they ALL could be included in the end. We practically create soundtracks for all the collections. Unfortunately, our videos can't be full length movies (even though we'd love that) so we end up cutting our selection down to one. But we all know that there can't just be ONE song for each mood.

So Tune Tuesdays is where you get to listen to all those soundtracks inspired by different moods and different collections. 

Our first Tunes Tuesday is Notes of Floressence, inspired by our AGF In-House Studio collection Floressence!

Have Spotify? So do we! Check out our Notes of Floressence playlist on Spotify!

Feel free to let me know if there are any additions you'd all like to make and possibly what would be the next soundtrack you'd like to hear!

From my musical ears to yours,

The AGF experience at Quilt Market.

Hello hello!

I'm glad you enjoyed our pics from Market, it was soo much work but oh so rewarding in the end!

So you know how they say "a picture is worth a thousand words"? Well that might be true, but because nothing tells the story like a VIDEO, the video-editing genius and graphic design extraordinaire Kat (part of our awesome AGF team lol) made this cool video about our experience at Market.

As you'll be able to tell, it was insanely rolling-on-the-floor-laughing fun and we had the best time ever, I honestly can't complain.

So if you never attended Market you'll be able to see a little bit of what really goes on in there (plus you'll get to see the AGF team making a fool out of ourselves in public lol) 

I still laugh everytime I watch it ha! What do you think, is this what you would expect to see at Market? What do you imagine it's like? Do share!

Happy long weekend everyone!

Love,

Pat.
