Gearing up for International Quilt Market This week

May 10th, 2011

Boutique__pink-I am giddy that this week, in just a few days I’ll have the experience once again of attending Quilt Market in Salt Lake City. Quilt Market is a twice a year phenomenon where fabric designers, pattern makers, sewing enthusiasts and industry gather to showcase what they have been working on. It’s a treat and there is always great energy in the air. Sometimes you feel like you’re bursting with ideas just by being in the room.

We have been covering Quilt Market as Press for our viewers for several years now, and I have a feeling that this year is going to be the best ever! To share in all the creative fun I have a great team coming along with me – Emily our Contributing Editor and owner of Is This Really My Life, and Megan (our past Queen of Chat on Boutique Cafe) and owner of Brassy Apple. Aren’t I a lucky girl to have such a talented and amazing team?!! Just look for the two tall, amazingly stunning gals with cute hair and great shoes and you’ll spot Emily and Megan!! We are gearing up for all the fun and mayhem that Quilt Market provides. If you are attending and see us in the aisles please stop and say hello, we would love to meet you. I also have a few goodies to give away…shhhhhh its kind of a surprise.

Boutique Cafe will be featuring a huge selection of Market interviews, pictures and oodles of giveaways with many of your favourite designers, so be sure to check back here for post-Market coverage. We will even be partying with many bloggers at the Quilt Market Meet-up on Saturday evening. Thursday evening I’m hoping to make it to Quilt Market Sweet Treats and Drinks, a mixer so I’m crossing my fingers that my plane arrives on time for us to attend. It’s going to be a whirlwind of a weekend (feet don’t fail me now), but I can’t wait to get back and share all that we have discovered with you.

See you in SLC and beyond everyone! XO - Daria

If you have questions for specific designers, we would love to capture them answering you on video. Simply post or email your question and we’ll do our best to ask the designer for you at Market. Just a fun way to bring you all along with us.

Amy Butler “River Camp” Latest Knit Designs

March 7th, 2011

rivercamp_opt Hello again sunshine!
Spring is my favorite. I love getting back out into nature as the ground awakens. Warm sun bursting through cool woodland trees, soft breezes and patterns of light on the forest floor. These relaxed inspirations led to my open and translucent design ideas for River Camp – my second collection of knit projects for Rowan. Cover ups with natural glamour, delicate like a fern & layered with modern pattern – paired with cozy blankets and accessories for romantic comfort-all made up in my Belle Organic yarns (50% wool / 50% cotton). Come visit my website to see images of the 16 projects and a short inspirational video!
Happy Spring! YES!! – xo Amy

Here’s a few pics to entice you:
