I was delighted to chat with Katie Hunt about licensing on her podcast, Proof to Product! It was a fun conversation, where we dug into the realities of licensing fabric designs, and my tips for entering into partnerships with manufacturers. Listen to the full interview on the Tradeshow Bootcamp website!
Just received issue 56 of Love Patchwork & Quilting, and I’m excited to share that I was the featured designer in this month’s issue! In the interview, I share my experience working with Robert Kaufman Fabrics to launch Arroyo, and what it’s like to see modern quilters using my designs. Pick up a copy to read the full article — there’s amazing modern quilt patterns and tons on inspiration inside.
I was delighted to go on CBS-8 in San Diego yesterday morning to tell our city about Makers Arcade, the holiday sale that I’m participating in on Saturday! It was a great opportunity to remind our community to shop local, and to introduce myself to a wider audience in the city I’ve called home for almost a full year.
If you live in the San Diego area, stop by Makers Arcade this Saturday and say hello!
I feel so humbled to have been interviewed in Seamwork Magazine this month! I am always in awe of anyone who can sew their own clothing ⏤ sewing curves and delicate seams is a whole other ballgame compared to the relatively simple designs I sew for Cotton & Flax. It’s an honor to have the opportunity to share my story with Seamwork’s community of talented makers.
In the interview, I talk a bit about Arroyo, my new fabric collection with Robert Kaufman, as well as the ways that I bring my ethics and sustainable mindset to my work at Cotton & Flax. Check out the full interview in Seamwork Magazine to learn more about my background as a maker, as well as my future goals for Cotton & Flax.
More beautiful projects created with my first fabric collection, Arroyo for Robert Kaufman! This quilt was designed by Nichole Ramirez, and sewn and quilted by Erica and Heather Cartwright. This beauty was featured in Today’s Quilter Magazine this month! So cool to see the wide range of possibilities of what you can create with Arroyo.
Want to see other projects made with Arroyo fabrics? Check out the #ArroyoFabric on Instagram to see more beautiful DIY pieces created with my fabrics. These fabrics will be available in stores soon ⏤ ask your favorite local fabric shop if they’ll be stocking Arroyo!
I had such a great time chatting with Erin Husted of Hackwith Design House for the Why Do We Have Things? podcast a few weeks ago. Our conversation dug into the idea of sustainability in business, and all the different forms that can take. If you’re curious about my commitment to sustainable, natural materials, or how I approach sustainability in my business practices, have a listen!
