AMB at QuiltCon Recap

AMB & Quiltcon Collage

American Made Brand, the newest division of Clothworks, featuring cotton solids made in the USA, was a big hit at last week’s QuiltCon in Austin, TX!  Our team enjoyed meeting all of the lovely folks interested in the AMB solids during the show that caters to the modern quilting crowd.  Maybe it was the striking modern quilts made up in AMB solids displayed in our booth, or the assortment of 62 solid colors in bright, vibrant hues that caught the eyes of the show attendees. Once they examined the quality of the AMB cotton solids- fabric with a firm, yet soft hand– this most certainly got them hooked!   And as they soon discovered that this fantastic product is grown & made right here in the United States, we quickly gained an enthusiastic & dedicated following!!  By the end of QuiltCon, we were running out of our goodie samples!!!

AMB squares- almost out

 American Made Brand was also excited to participate in the QuiltCon Quilt Show as a proud sponsor of one of the show categories.  We sponsored the Minimalist Design Category, one of seven categories featured in the juried quilt show at QuiltCon.  Two winners were chosen in this category as their quilts exemplified simple design with stunning visual impact.  Congratulations to the winners, just look at their beautiful work below!!
