Our blog may be new, but Violette Field Threads certainly isn't!  

Allow us to backtrack momentarily *just* a few months, because it would be shameful not to share our amazing trip to Kansas City, MO for the Spring International Quilt Market.  As many of you know, we started our clothing and accessory pattern company in PDF form.  About a year after opening our virtual doors, we took a leap of faith, and took our 7 most popular patterns, and transitioned them into the printed form.  Spring Quilt Market was our introduction to hundreds of retailers nationwide.   

We didn't have a clue as to what we should expect.... but we are so happy to report that the response was amazing indeed!  

After months of preparation our booth came together just as we had imagined.

Check out our booth:


We poured over antique stores and found our beautiful French provincial table.  However, our favorite find was the gorgeous antique frame we put around logo.

 

We really tried to make every detail beautiful and inviting!  We found antique chairs, painted them white, and recovered them in a cheery fabric.  Using an idea we saw from Pinterest, we used the same fabric to turn a dilapidated coffee table into an inviting ottoman. 

 Recovering this coffee table and turning it into a comfy ottoman wasn't very hard at all...
We each plan on doing this project again for each of our homes.
(we'll make sure to blog about that when we get around to those projects)
 All and all, we were SO very happy with the outcome of our booth and our experience!

We were so honored to come home and read lovely reviews like this:

Violette Field Threads: These little girl dress and clothing patterns are unbelievable. So much fun. And their photography is killer. If you see a little one stylin’ down the street, she might just be wearing a Violette Field Threads design…Eye Candy Quilts.

Thank you for sharing our experience with us..... Stay tuned for posts about our preparation for The Fall International Quilt Market in Houston, TX later this month!

I am so happy that you have started a blog! I love your patterns and dream of doing a business just like this one day.

Your booth looks beautiful! I would have loved to come see it in person. Good Job!

I would love if you would share where you find your darling fabric and the process of designing a garment!

I am so excited to watch along as your blog grows!
