Loominous II Challenge

There’s just something special about a woven fabric. The color-play of the threads, the distinct patterning, the gorgeous hand — they 300x300_loominous2jpg-1all come together in a way no screen-printed fabric can truly duplicate. Anna Maria Horner’s latest with Freespirit Fabrics, Loominous II, is all of this and more. We’ve been plotting nonstop since we ordered it earlier this year and those plans have gone into overdrive since we unboxed the bolts this week. And now’s your chance to show off your Loominous II projects!

Join our Loominous II Challenge and make a piece of clothing, a bag or quilt with fabric from the line you purchase at Intown Quilters. You’re entered when you buy one yard of Loominous II from us (can be multiple pieces of fabric totaling one yard). Challenge entries are due at IQ Sunday, 12/4. We think the fabric would look great turned into a Scout Tee, Dress no. 1 or 2, or a Willow Tank/Dress (or think outside the box and make a cute pair of lounge pants, like Pants no. 1!) but it would work just as well with a variety of bag patterns (think travel bag or purse) or even a quilt (maybe mixed with the new Kaffe Artisan wovens and prints)!

Kaffe Fassett Glorious Color Lecture

grt_dixter-2201-landscapeJoin us at SCAD Atlanta for a fabulous lecture and power point presentation by Kaffe Fassett.
The lecture will be at the Atlanta campus of the Savannah College of Art and Design 1600 Peachtree St NW Atlanta, GA 30309 in the event space 4C. Doors will open at 5:30pm with the lecture beginning promptly at 6pm and a book signing to follow. We will have light refreshments and will have books available for purchase while supplies last, although it is far safer to purchase one ahead of time and bring it with you.
We suggest you make an afternoon of it and come to the campus early to beat the traffic, get a good parking space and see the gallery exhibit in Gallery See. You can even get a cup of coffee in their Hub to perk you up.
When you arrive at SCAD pull into the drive on the east side of the building (the left side if you are facing the building) and follow to the back of the property into the parking garage. You can enter the building on the first or second floors of the garage and take the elevator right up to the event space to see the Gallery See. We suggest you do not park in the visitor spots toward the front of the property (unless the lot is full at that point) and enter at the front as the front of the building is locked at 7pm and you cannot go back out that way.
