Project Run and Play's Pantone Party x AGF



Welcome back, Makers! 

Here at AGF, we are inspired every day by the projects you share with us online! From your fabric pulls to your inspiration, and your final projects are what keeps fueling our passion for making fabrics. We work hard at AGF to gather our creative juices to come up with fresh ideas and nothing is more rewarding when we see them come back full circle! 

When the year started, Pantone released their new colors of the year, we were feeling inspired! The colors of the year 2021 were “Ultimate Gray” and “Illuminating,” a neutral pebble gray with a bright yellow that represents optimism, resilience, and hope for the new year. The team and I went straight to work to translate this into fabrics and went directly to the warehouse to choose some fabrics! Excited to share our findings, we created a newsletter with free sewing projects and inspiration to get the year started on the right foot, and to our surprise, Audrey from @skirtfixation came up with an amazing collaboration. 

Audrey, also being inspired by these colors, hosted a fantastic “Pantone Party” on her website Project Run and Play featuring tons of apparel made of Art Gallery Fabrics substrates including quilting cotton, rayon, knit, denim, and even canvas! Every week of March, she invited a talented maker that shared their creations with us and we had to come here today to give them all a spotlight. 

So without further ado, prepare to be swept off your feet by all these amazing garments!
