For today's #moodmondays post our blog contributor Lauv wants to know:Who are your favorite artist(s), it doesn't have to be a famous one, it could be your neighbour; you choose and what's the style or movement in art that you prefer to paint and/or admire? Continue reading

Hello! I hope everyone is enjoying the long weekend. I am back with a the perfect subject for today's AGF Mood Monday (and one of my favourite things to do: TRAVEL). Two "simple" questions here: where's the best place you... Continue reading
Rosemary, you had me at Chopin. I'm not going to pretend I'm a classical music expert, but from the very little I've listened to, Chopin always gives me goosebumps. So even the little details you have shared are already reading so beautiful and melodic, and written on piano sheet music? Are you a genius?

Elizabeth! Reading this put so many cool images in my head, and rockabilly seems like the perfect sound for what you describe. A typist? that is so awesome, and so in line with this post. I HAD to look up the etymology of "yeoman" and now you've taught me something new. Thank you for that! I more than enjoyed it!

Hello! It's been a minute since I last wrote here, but I am happy to be back and share with you our new AGF Mood Mondays: starting today, some Mondays we’ll talk about other things other than fabric. WAIT, WHAT?... Continue reading

Thank you, Rosemary, you're absolutely right; great quality materials + putting in the work = ace results!

Absolutely. Thank you for bringing that up, Judy. Colour is a key player, especially on how we place colours that read as negative space, or if we choose two adjacent pieces to be the same fabric, even it there is a seam, it transforms everything. Thank you for following along!

June is here. Steph and I started this series on April 11th, but with Quilt Market prep, we paused it for a bit. A bit over a month, although it feels like the first post was published two weeks ago... Continue reading
Thank you, Rosemary. It's been a lot of fun! I actually realised how much information I had to tell Steph about quilting while I was teaching her "the basics." Jeni's book is definitely worth having.

Many of you know that April and May are busier-than-usual months at AGF because it's show (International Spring Quilt Market) time! That's why the time between episodes of this series has been a bit long, but today I'm back with... Continue reading
Hii! No, of course I know you meant no offense, and I honestly appreciate your feedback, after all, this blog series celebrates precisely that! Human communication and mutual learning. I know your intention was to teach kindly and not to laugh at me (:

Thank you, Sarah! The same thing happened to me, I feel that once I gave up some of the control to the machine, and in a way, let the fabric "slide," everything was turning out better. I think a good steady but gentle speed is also good. I know quilters who press the pedal all the way and their projects turn out amazing, but in my case, I have to keep it more casual speed. I hope that makes sense also. Thank you, again.

Thank you, Kathleen! Great advice. I realise most of the advice is more about the attitude and that's awesome. Congrats on your finished quilt!

Thank you, Rosemary! That is so great that you care for your parents. And please be picky. After half of my life in this country, I'm still trying to master the language, and still keep my other languages in check, so I fixed it already.

Thank you! All I can say is that we are both into modern quilting, and bold colouring.

Thank you so much, Katie! Sewing that quilt was quite the experience, especially because the 1/4" is VERY important, but oh I learned it jaja... I didn't know you also sew quilts hmmm jejeje

2016 marks my fifth year working at Art Gallery Fabrics. For those of you who may be wondering what I do here: I wear many hats, but my main job is to be a product designer (fashion/quilts/home decor), and to... Continue reading

That's funny - but hey, maybe that's her way of saying that it's time to make something for her brother. There are many patterns that are cool and simple to make... a button down in Afternoon Sail, with the collar, cuffs and a pocket in Bombazine Inspired. That could be a start: http://liveartgalleryfabrics.com/thedenimstudio.html

Creating outfits is awesome. Creating miniature outfits is awesome and adorable. I do not have children, nor do I see myself having one now, but I love them. They're fun, and make conversations refreshing. They also make clothes look MUCH... Continue reading
