Hey Fabric Lovers,
What a week or should I say weekend! Time flew by so fast we can't believe Quilt Market is already over. The whole AGF family (designers + the girls) had such a remarkable time meeting new faces, reconnecting with old friends, and setting up our booths; but it feels so good to be back home to the warm weather of FL. As you might all know, Quilt Market is a trade show where fabric shops are able to buy large amounts of fabrics from various wholesale vendors. Unfortunately, it is not open to the public (sad, we know). For this reason, we thought about everyone who couldn't make it and we took tons of pictures and videos for your enjoyment. We wanted you to feel as if you were there, at least in spirit!
This year for the AGF booth we wanted to do something simple yet stylish, something that was going to make people stop by and say "Woah, that's beautiful!" while still representing everyone's passion for the industry. Here is a tour of our booth from wall to wall. On the front entry we featured our upcoming substrate: Canvas. This display showed the substrate's prints in full view and allowed visitors feel the quality of the Canvas. On the inside of our booth, we curated a gallery of AGF quilts. We knew we couldn't go wrong with this idea because what's Quilt Market without quilts! We strategically folded each quilt so they all had the same measurements and hung them on hangers that were hand painted with gold designs.
In the middle we had a lounging area, where everybody was welcomed to come sit, share a few laughs, and rest their feet after a long day of fabric shopping. After a few sleepless nights, brainstorming sessions and tons of preparations for Quilt Market, we are so proud to have won first place in multiple booths.
I hope you are ready to see in full detail the booth of our first designer, Pat Bravo featuring her newest collection Artisan. It honors the passion of all crafters with a bohemian air. This collection is characterized by un-styled designs and hints of rustic textures. It truly celebrates DIY culture and "love for design." Artisan Fabrics features colors like denim blue, lumberjack red and raw sienna as key players, available in stores August 2015.
We hope you enjoyed our first recap of Quilt Market. Stay tuned for more of tomorrow's tour where you'll get to see April, Bari, Katarina and Jeni's booth in full detail.
