Moda Presents the Victoria & Albert Museum Collection…

The Premier Schoolhouse on Thursday, May 18th at Spring Market 2017 will see the debut of a new collection inspired by the archives of the Victoria & Albert Museum.

Moda Fabrics is honored to announce an exciting new partnership with the Victoria & Albert Museum in London, the world’s leading museum for decorative arts, with a celebrated collection of textiles and textile arts.  Our first collaboration is based on prints designed by William Morris (1834-1896)

The Premiere Schoolhouse event begins at 10:00 am in the Ferrera Ballroom and folks have to be registered for Schoolhouse to attend.

This is always the first Schoolhouse of the day, and it is the only one at the time.  It opens with a greeting and presentation by Karey Bresenhan, the Founder and President of Quilts, Inc., the organization that runs Quilt Markets and Quilt Festivals.  She is followed by Marti Michell of Michell Marketing, they oversee the Schoolhouse presentations.  Then it’s time for the featured presenter – this year, it’s Moda Fabrics.

Yes, we’re pretty excited about it.

Someone usually videotapes the presentation and as soon as we know if one exists and where to find it, we’ll share the link.  Rumor has it that the Fat Quarter Shop will be filming and sharing via Facebook Live, but that’s unconfirmed.

There will be lots of pictures to share in the days and weeks after – I promise.

The quilt?  That’s the William Morris Medallion quilt created for the collection.  More about that soon.

Happy Monday!
