We finally recovered from our annual event, Spring Quilt Market! This year, we flew to beautiful Salt Lake City, Utah for a week. There is always a mad rush in spring to get our products ready for market, but this year we were especially busy as we developed 22 new patterns, including our Indygo Essentials garment line, three coloring books, two embroidery books, and a new line of dimensional English paper piecing kits called Fabriflair! Below is our Indygo group in our booth. Amy is wearing our new Shift Dress, Betsy is wearing the Sidekick Skirt (made out of Amy's new fabric line, Stitcher's Garden. See more about the fabric on Amy's blog), Cheryl is wearing the Asymmetrical Top and Donna has on the Mandarin Vest.
Below, check out the sneak peek video we created for shop owners to preview our new products before Quilt Market. Many of the new products featured in the video is available now, and everything will be shipping by July 1st.
We launched two new brands this year, the first being Indygo Essentials. Essentials is our chic and simple garment line, created for those sewers who want to create simple, classic styles. We have launched the line with 6 styles, two tops, a vest, a jacket, a dress and pants.
The other exciting brand we launched is Fabriflair! Inspired by a vintage piece of Amy's, we created six dimensional paper piecing kits. The process is similar to English paper piecing, but instead of basting the fabric to the paper and later removing them, you glue the fabric to the matboard templates and leave them in. Fabriflair received a great reception at market - store owners were loving it. See the full line of kits here.
Lately it seems like everyone is on board with the coloring craze – we definitely are! Amy has such an amazing library of vintage illustrations, which we thought would be perfect for coloring books. The images featured in Fashion Therapy, Pattern Play and Quilting Therapy are all original illustrations found in sewing patterns, books and Amy's collection of Woman's Institute materials, which inspired her book Vintage Notions.
Last but certainly not least are the two embroidery books, Folk Art Motifs and Land That I Love. These books are truly Vintage Made Modern, as they use vintage embroidery designs updated for modern sewists! Folk Art Motifs has over 400 designs to hand embroider, plus two quilt patterns. Land That I Love features fun designs for each of the 50 states. Combine designs to show your hometown pride!
