Glimpses of Quilt Market #5 - Timeless Treasures and More Insights

logo-200

Today I want to share with you another report on Quilt Market.  There was so much to see, learn, do that I hope you are enjoying my periodic sharing of "glimpses of Quilt Market" when I can.


what are the exciting new products

A common question is "What are the most exciting new products?" shared at Market?   

Quilt Market has amazing Vendors,with an endless number of new products,  as that is what this event is all about.  It is a Trade Show where those in the business come to shop and/or sell their new products, as well as share insights on how these products can be used.  

Many of these vendor booths are well staged to showcase their products to help draw attendees that may be walking by to  come into their booth and spend more time.  They also want to inspire creativity.  And many will share tips and insights on new tools, new books, new fabrics and more.  For attendees it is easy to be overwhelmed with beauty, as there is inspirational creativity at every turn!

For SewCalGal, Timeless Treasures had an amazing booth that stood out for their amazing creativity, beautiful designs, gorgeous fabrics, friendly team and exciting new fabrics!

It was no surprise that they won an award for best "Creative" booth.  But SewCalGal also wants to recognize them for caring about their fans, on various social media tools, as they thoughtfully created a youtube video of their booth and shared it on Facebook, Twitter, etc.    For those that can't attend Market and enjoy learning about new products, as well as the experience of Market, we certainly appreciate such videos, photos, insights being shared with us.

   

All of the new fabrics from Timeless Treasures will soon be appearing in your favorite quilt shops.  There is definitely something for every interest, if not multiple lines that you'll want to create a project with.   

They are also offering some super fun BOM "store programs" that you'll definitely want to favorite quilt shops to offer.   

One new BOM program by Sharyn Craig and Daniela Stout (Cozy Quilt Designs).  You'll have the option to use Sharyn's Building Block 1 Rulers, which help create perfectly pieced blocks.  And we all know Sharyn comes up with the best "settings" designs ever.  This program is called "Tongan Escape", as it uses the Tonga collection.  And in January 2014 this program will also be available for a collection of Tonga in neutrals, blues and browns.

Soon, we will start seeing new fabrics and BOM Programs appearing at our favorite quilt shops.  And SewCalGal thinks you are going to love to create with what Timeless Treasure has just introduced.

It was certainly easy to fall in love with their new fabrics by seeing them in such stunning quilts.

And, to my delight they also had a beautiful red and white quilt displayed.  I'm sure there is a special story about this quilt and I hope to be able to share more insights with you about it in 2014.  Everyone needs a red and white quilt.  And we all know you can never have too many red and white quilts either.  Plus, for those of us that enjoy free-motion quilting many designs for red and white quilts help to show off beautiful FMQ quilting too!

I also liked how many of their new fabric lines were displayed by way of showing beautiful blocks mounted and hung on the walls.  I do have this theory that if you take a quilt block, or quilt top and hang it like art, you really don't have an UFO!


Lastly, I want to recognize and thank Timeless Treasures for being a sponsor for the Quilter's Bee Giving Charity Fundraiser.  The generously donated a yummy bundle of fat quarters

I love the Timeless Treasures booth! What a great idea to mount quilt squares or even just fabric on gallery-wrapped canvas!
