What started as utter chaos, with the help of many hands, was transformed into a stellar booth display featuring many of our Fall 2013 releases.
We were lucky enough to have a nice roster of presenters for Schoolhouses including Michael Mrowka and Debra Lunn of Lunn Studios, Julie Herman of Jaybird Quilts, Carolyn Friedlander, Allie Heath, Teresa Coates and Darlene Zimmerman.

Loads of little projects using Remix and the new Remix Metallics, including the Pixelated Heart quilt, This and That lunch tote from Sew Sweetness, Urban Flotologie flannel footies, notebook cover, rain jacket and more. Many of these patterns will be available in the Patterns section of robertkaufman.com.
The Kona display was a favorite for many with its unique display of all 271 Kona Cotton colors:
