Today was our day to look at fabric with our fabric reps. Of course, we ordered some Moda. It'll be torture to wait until next year for arrival. We really liked Kim Diehl's line from Henry Glass and Judy Rothermel's 25th anniversary line. Jo Morton also has some very nice prints that would work well with what we already have.
We were very disappointed many of our favorite designers aren't at market. No Crabapple Hill, Renee Nanneman, Buttermilk Basin, Heart to Hand, Reets Rags, JoAnn Mullaly, or Hatched and Patched. We hope everything is ok with them and they will make it to the spring market in Portland. Meanwhile, we will be contacting them to look at new designs.
One of the most exciting tidbits we learned today is that 3 of Yoko Saito's Books are being translated to English. The first, Scandinavian Quilts, will be available in November. We saw a preview copy and it is wonderful.
