Floating on Cloud9

Beth will have plenty of information in her recap at tomorrow's meeting, but here are some pictures from yesterday's field trip to Cloud9 Fabrics in Cranford, NJ.

The office space was just gorgeous. On the wall were favorite framed fabrics.

Gina and Michelle kindly told us all about their business, from how fabric is made and manufactured, to how a collection can grow from a single idea. Our members had some great questions about quality, distribution and how to pick just the right color way.

Here, Michelle shows the evolution of an upcoming collection. Check out the gorgeous quilt on the wall behind her!

We got to fondle all the gorgeous samples.

 Daniela loved the voile from the Koi collection.

We toured the warehouse
Group shot! (sorry for blocking you, Sue and Melissa)

A few of us lucky groupies got to take home some fat quarters.

Thanks again to Michelle and Gina for having us, and also for Beth for arranging the whole trip. We hope to have lots more fun off-site events in the coming months.
