I could not be more thrilled about today’s post!
I know many of you are interested in the quilt/ craft fabric marketplace, so last week I sat down with Jane Lewis, Art Director of P&B Textiles, to ask her a view questions. We cover a vast array of important topics including:
1. What are manufacturers looking for in patterns or collections? What makes a collection irresistible to you? What would you like to see more of in quilting fabrics?
2. When you are making the decision on whether or not to purchase a print, how much does your decision depend on if it is in repeat or not?
3. Is there anything that is “just not done” with a fabric meant for quilting- sort of a quilter’s taboo?
4. How and when do you like to receive submissions? How many collections should we have in order to make a submission?
