Our Visit to Moda - Part 2

Here is the rest of our Moda visit. When John and I arrived at the Moda offices, we were greeted with goody bags and then entered the warehouse where we began shopping with this huge shopping cart.  It's amazing how much fabric they have in there, yet they're waiting for more shipments to come in and fill the shelves again.  Most of our shopping was done in the fabric warehouse; there is also a notions warehouse and a pre-cuts warehouse, but we didn't have time to go through them!

Shelves are lined with bolts and bolts of fabric.

This is a stack of tons of quilts made from Moda fabric and patterns!

The Moda Library houses small amounts of all the fabrics Moda has provided over the years.  What a cool concept!  Mark says that here our great-great-granddaughters will find just the small bit of fabric needed to patch a worn block in a quilt that you made today.

This shows yardage of fabric in its different stages of screen printing.

Designers and vendors lined the aisles.

Barb and Mary of Me & My Sister designs.  They are a hoot!

Betsy Cuchian designed our Lizzie's Legacy collection that we carry at Prairie Point.

Joan Hawley from Lazy Girl Designs showed me some of her new products.  She makes the Key Fobio and the Becca Bags among others, and has her own line of purse interfacings and battings.

We met the Fat Quarter Gypsy, Joanne Hillestad, who designs the adorable pop-up bins.  Her newest product is a pop-up for your pop can! 

I enjoyed my dinner with the fabric designers! Here we have Barbara Groves and Mary Jacobson of Me & My Sister, Anne Sutton from Bunny Hill designs, and Karla Eisenach of Sweetwater.

I also got to see John Wayne.  The best cowboy. He didn't have much to say to me.

When we're all done, John pushes the cart to the checkout.  Looks like there is room for more.  Back to shopping!
