Meet the New Folks: Elisabeth!

What do you do at Robert Kaufman Fabrics?
I am the Event Coordinator,  responsible for handling the logistics for trade shows, assisting in booth prep and managing quilt loans. If  you come to a Quilt Market, you’ll likely see me wandering around the  Robert Kaufman Fabrics booth, making sure things are flowing smoothly and  everything is in its place.
 
How did you wind up here?
I  have a serious love for quilting, sewing and fabric; so when I heard  Robert Kaufman Fabrics was looking to grow their team, I knew I wanted to be a  part of it. While I have not been in the industry before, this is an  exciting leap into a whole new world.
 
What's your favorite fabric right now?
At the moment, I’m really enjoying Carolyn Friedlander’s Architextures. Each print is so beautiful and they work well with everything!
 
Do you have a favorite technique or pattern?
I love the Marcelle Medallion pattern from the Liberty Love book. I’ve made two and it has me addicted to the idea of creating more medallion quilts down the road.

What is your current project?
I  am working on a few different things right now – like most quilters out  there. I have a paper pieced neighborhood that’s slowly coming  together, as well as a scrap quilt that just needs a back!

Go-to color for quilting?
Orange. Hands down.
 
Name three things on your sewing/quilting bucket list:

 
If you could spend a day with any quilter or designer, who would it be?
I  would love to spend a day with Suzy Ultman. I’m always attracted to her  fabrics, even before I find out who designs them. She has such a talent  for creating a whimsical and enchanting world.
 
Anything else you want to tell us?
I’m   a Disney nerd and I eat lots and lots of candy. I love seeing the  creative community in force, and being inspired by the way different  people view the world. I can’t wait to see where this journey takes me.
