Aloha! I received my first Island Batik boxes and made a video of all of the wonderful fabrics, threads, batting, needles and dies that I will be using this year during my ambassadorship. I have been inspired and hope that you find inspiration while viewing these wonderful supplies that will be used for each monthly project.
Island Batik, Accuquilt, Aurifil, Hobbs Batting and Schmetz Needles have generously sponsored my ambassadorship and given me these supplies to create monthly projects.#island_batik, #accuquilt, #aurifilthread, #hobbsbatting, #schmetzneedles
Below I have listed these wonderful sewing notions and fabrics so that you too can be inspired to create.
Vincent's Garden is a new collection that will be available this February in fabric stores. It was announced in the Fall 2020 catalog. It was designed by Kathy Engle for Karen Overton. I have the pleasure of using it in my February challenge.
