The CHA Mega Show Marketplace opens today! Attendees won’t want to miss the Fabric Editions booth (#2013), which will be busy with make-it take-its and full of info about the launch of Fabric Elements, a brand new partnership with renowned mixed media artist, Rebekah Meier!
We are SO excited about this one… mainly because we love Fabric Editions, think Rebekah is simply amazing, and there are a handful of Pellon® products included!
Rebekah based the product line upon her Fabric Art Collage books and techniques. The products are incredibly versatile and were designed to fit the creative needs of both the novice and the experienced crafter, mixed media enthusiast, collage maker (both fabric and paper combined), scrapbooker, art quilter and fiber artist.
The product line is made up of 32 items, though retailers can pick and choose the product story that suits their consumer. In the line are 9 fabric substrates (including Peltex®/Lutradur®!), 12 cotton fat quarters, 6 embellishment items including three stencils, tissue paper, and lace trims, and 3 self-contained kits (one includes EZ-Steam® II and one includes 806 Stitch-N-Tear®!). Additionally, the product line will launch with an exclusive technique book by Rebekah Meier showing her latest mixed-media projects and step by step instructions using these fabrics.
The line was nominated to the CHA’s Hot Products for 2015 in the Fabric/Craft category. Winners will be announced at the CHA Foundation Gala on Sunday, January 11, so we’ll keep you posted!
CHA attendees: Stop by the Fabric Editions booth (#2013) for a chance to play with the Fabric Elements line under Rebekah’s expert instruction. The Make-it Take-its will cover the design and construction of Fabric Tags, using Pellon® 72F Peltex® II Ultra-Firm 2-Sided Fusible as a base.
On Monday, Rebekah will lead a Workshop for Mixed Media Banners. Students will use products from the Fabric Elements line in addition to our new and improved Pellon® EZ-Steam® II Sheets!
