CHA Sneak Peek Highlights – Part 1

The sneak peeks are starting to trickle out (due to the way the holidays occur this year, don’t expect the avalanche until probably the week of January 6th). Despite the fact that relatively few are out yet, there are still some really great ones worth putting on your wish list already!

Amy Tangerine has knocked it out of the park – AGAIN – with her new “Plus One” collection. It coordinates with her previous collections, continuing the same palette and style while still somehow looking fresh. A plethora of small patterns makes this perhaps the most usable of all the Amy Tangerine collections to date.

Several items stand out from the collection. These flair badges are particularly appealing, very versatile and so workable for a huge amount of applications: Plus One Flair Continue Reading →

Coats & Clark, Tim Holtz Announce Line of Quilt Fabric

Fans of Tim Holtz who also take part in sewing and quilting activities will have something to celebrate soon as Tim announced today a new partnership with Coats & Clark that will have him designing the company’s debut fabric line.

Coats & Clark is well-known to sewers and quilters for their thread and sewing notions, and lovers of knit & crochet for their Red Heart yarn and their Susan Bates brand needles & hooks. But fabric will be a new endeavor for Coats.

The new line, called Eclectic Elements, will feature 24 SKUs of fabric designs that will be familiar to Tim Holtz fans from his paper lines. Some of the designs are being produced in two different color tones, taupe and neutral (seen below). The 100% cotton fabric is 44″ wide and will be available on 15 yard bolts. For quilters, the fabric will be available in fat quarters, design rolls, 5” and 10” charm packs and fat eighths, while it is being marketed for papercrafters in 6″ and 12″ fabric crafting packs.

Wow, the news has been coming fast and furious this past week! We’ve got a little bit of everything – including new products, a big sale, a design team call, and a big industry retirement – to talk about.

(And did you notice the new name? Noteworthy is now “Update”!)

In case you missed our big announcement last week, Nally Studios is the new owner of Craft Critique, the craft industry’s leading product review website. We have exciting plans for the website and hope that both existing Craft Critique readers and our Scrapbook Update audience will like what they see as we grow the site.

Digital diva Renee Pearson is having a creative team call for 2013 for her online education website. Creative team members will gain free access to classes and workshops, and participate in creating layouts, photographs and projects to be used as class samples. They will also be expected to take part in promotional activities via blogs, social media and other venues. Deadline for applications is November 20th. Continue Reading →
