Kansas City was a huge success! The new lines and the booth were well received by shop owners across the country. Our new lead designer, Megan Downer, and Studio e leader, Scott Fortunoff , posed for a quick candid shot during one of the few moments of lull in the Studio e booth.
Our booth this year featured a quilting challenge to some well known quilters to use the Studio e Essentials line of fabrics to create a piece that would be featured in the “gallery” of the Studio e booth. Here are some pictures of the wonderful pieces. Congratulations to all our quilting stars for a great show in Kansas!
Studioe Fabrics has some big changes taking place right now and we want all of our customers to be well informed of all the excitement!
Since Studioe began at its debut at quilt market in 2008, the quilt shop only line has been known to be fashion forward and welcomed in the marketplace. We have made our prominence as a central figure among quilt shop owners with a flair in presenting a new twist on standard basics. For example, the Essentials line has taken black, white +red to a whole new level.
So, here we are now, nearly 5 years into the game and still going strong. We are about to make the Studioeline even stronger and take it to the next level. We are packing up our South Carolina bags and movingStudioe to New York City!
We have made it to the big leagues, where all the major textile converters reside. We will now be under the umbrella of our sister company, Jaftex Corporation, located on 37th Street.
Many of our licensed artists will continue to partner with us, to help keep our designs fresh and appealing. The fantastic news is that leading the charge will be a rising star in the quilting world, Megan Downer. Megan has a Master’s in Fine Arts, specializing in Fibers/Textiles, from Boston University. She also has a Bachelors degree, with honors, from West Surrey College of Art in England. Recently, Megan was a stylist with Benartex, Inc. She also held a Design Director position at Springs Creative Group in Rock Hill, North Carolina.
We are so excited to have Megan leading the Studioe team in New York. Look forward to exciting designs in the future! Thank you for your support!
