Review quote

Mar 12 You'll find lots of projects you like and want to make in this stylish book. 36 projects that will make your house into your home. Good advice, hints and professional tips are combined with techniques for making quilted objects such as quilts, pillows, table linen and ideas for the office, bedroom, laundry room, baby room and more. I'd start right at the beginning with the circle quilt, it's lovely. Love the scalloped place mats and circle coasters too. Practical yet fresh designs and ideas. Karen Platt Yarnsandfabrics.co.uk/crafts Mar 12 A calming book full of calming projects. As the authors said, today, life is anything but calm or simple. So the simple projects and book layout itself with be very appealing! There are projects organized by rooms - kitchen, office, master bedroom, family and baby. Pick an area you think your customers will enjoy, make several samples from this secion. Then, how about finding an old vintage chair, painting it white and using it in the display? The cover of Simple Homes says a lot about its contents. Since lighting candles presents a safety issue, purchase some of those new battery powered flameless candles. These can safely help add a calming mood! American Quilt Retailer

About Karla Eisnach

Sweetwater is a family-run business consisting of a mom and her two daughters. However, the company didn't actually begin as "Sweetwater." In 1985 Karla Eisenach went into a fabric shop carrying a handmade fabric basket and the instructions to make it. The store owner loved it, and a pattern company was launched. Because Karla lived in rural Colorado on a farm, she named the company Farmyard Creations. For more than 20 years, she has designed hundreds of patterns, including patterns for quilts, bags, and table runners. In 2001, her daughters, Susan and Lisa, decided to take on a big challenge and start a scrapbook business called Sweetwater. They began designing, marketing, and selling patterned paper and scrapbook embellishments to hundreds of stores across the United States and abroad. The demands of the scrapbook industry were great, and Karla took a break from the quilting business to focus on the new venture. Seven years later, the three women were given the opportunity to design a fabric collection for Moda. Karla was more than happy to get back to sewing, and Lisa and Susan needed a break from designing hundreds of scrapbooking products. Because the fabric designing is a joint venture, they kept the name Sweetwater and currently sell quilt patterns under that name.
