The end of the year is nigh …

It is almost the end of 2014 and looking back all I can say is what a busy, adventurous, year it has been with lots of trade events and new directions taken for the business.

Aurifil-AQM-2014-vendor-standAs always the final event for the year is the Australian wholesale Quilt Market, held in Melbourne in November.

Not a huge event by world standards, but still very important for Australian shops, and a great opportunity for us to put faces to names & voices that we have met by email, & telephone, during the year.

It is also the perfect place to catch up with many of the pattern designers who feature Aurifil threads in their work.

So let me introduce some of our favorite designers:

Marg-Low-Designs

Marg Low uses a lot of Cotton Mako’ 12 threads in her designs

The-Quilted-Crow-Girls

The Quilted Crow Girls have been using Cotton Mako’ 28 to applique their beautiful wool fabrics.

Zoe-Clifton-Designs

Zoe Clifton uses Cotton Mako’ 40 & 50 to piece, applique & quilt her designs.

Petals-&-Patches

Leanne Knell of Petals & Patches has started to use the Cotton Mako’ 12 for her stitchery designs.

The Australian Quilt Market is always such a great opportunity to meet people, to see what is new and go home inspired for the next year.

I wonder what we will do in 2015, after the 2013 market we decided to give our 2014 stand a modern twist with our Twenty First Century Round Robin.
