It’s that time again – time for the Annual Moda Warehouse Open House.
The decorating has started… but it’s not anywhere near finished. Though I expect that by the time you’re reading this, Ducky will have it all much closer to being ready – finished. Her troops have been mobilized and it’s all coming together.
Yes, quilts have been hung from the rafters of the warehouse.
Because we had so much fun in Salt Lake City, it was decided that we should bring Camp Moda to Dallas. Holly’s boat is moored in Building 3 – pictures next week.
We’re expecting a full contingent of campers – shop-owners from all over the country make the trip to shop the warehouse, meet some of Moda’s designers and favorite vendors, see product demos and okay, have a little bit of fun.
These ladies will all be here.
- Betsy Chutchian
- Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill Designs
- Barb Groves & Mary Jacobson of Me & My Sister Designs
- Karla Eisenach of Sweetwater
They’ll be joined by:
- Hilary Jordan for Aurifil
- Joan Hawley of Lazy Girl Designs
- Liz Eagan & Linda Eiseman of Spinning Star
- Tina Farman of C & T Publishing
- Jennifer Keltner & Wendy Jacobson of Martingale Publishing
- Beth Wild of Art Bin
- Doug Leko of Antler Quilt Designs
- Mike Morton, Debra Haney & Milt McGouirk of Clover
- Jessica Finn of Paper Pieces
- Joanne Hillestad of The Fat Quarter Gypsy
- Eileen Roche & Wayne Walker of The Weightless Quilter
- Devi Orloff & Teresa Ritter of Mary Ellen Products
- Cheryl & Gary Phillips of Phillips Fiber Art
- Tadashi Harada & Kotaro Harada for Tulip Needles Japan
And somewhere in one of the buildings, attendees will get to see this stack of quilts.
The quilts all belong to Moda – they were made for samples for one purpose or another. What is of note is that every designer who has ever had a collection manufactured by Moda Fabrics is represented here. There is at least one quilt made using one of their collections. How cool is that?
(Someone always asks – we’re very sorry but Open House is not open to the public. It is for Wholesale Customers of Moda Fabrics and United Notions. Maybe someday, right?)
