Karen Kay & Joseph Buckley
Her scissors are simply amazing – and the new 6″ size with the cushioned handles are spectacular. And, your customers want more than one – one for their sewing basket, one for their sewing room, one for their sewing machine….http://www.checkerdist.com/products/search?keywords=Karen+Kay+Buckley&relatedto=
Margaret Travis & Marie Darrow of Eazy Peazy Quilts
Her book – Eazy Peazy Gifts sold out early because it is lots of fast, simple gift items that can be made with a minimum of fabric and a maximum of charm. And, each gift can also be used to demonstrate a variety of techniques – a home run for any shop owner!!!
Carol McLeod of Auntie’s Two
Carol makes a living by creating techniques for adults – based on the childhood memories we all share! Who doesn’t remember weaving pot holders on a little metal frame? I was fascinated with the adult version – it will make your customers smile as well: http://www.checkerdist.com/products/search?keywords=auntie%27s+two&relatedto=
Ericka Wright and Jessica Herning of Violette Fields
Their children’s clothing is not just adorable – it is DOable! I was blown away when I saw the high quality pamphlet in each pattern that showed step by step how to make their darling clothes. Even a beginning seamstress will be successful. Check this out: http://www.checkerdist.com/products/search?keywords=violette+fields&relatedto=
Kathy McGee of Hemma Designs
Kathy specializes in storage containers and organizational projects that your customers will love. She used oil cloth in some of her projects and said that it was very easy to work with because it doesn’t ravel or fray – an added bonus that never occurred to me! You con’t have to finish the seams….http://www.checkerdist.com/products/search?keywords=hemma+designs&relatedto=
Kimberly Jolly, Sarah Price, and Jocelyn Ueng of It’s Sew Emma
These ladies have figured out how to make the most of the pre-cut market and have incorporated it into their patterns and books – and using their books and patterns, you can too: http://www.checkerdist.com/products/search?keywords=it%27s+sew+emma&relatedto=
More vendors, more displays, more quilts, and more pictures next week – an event this big just can’t be covered in one post!
