Inspiring Gift Idea: The New Peg Conley Book!


Just last week at Clothworks we had the pleasure of hosting a luncheon in honor of watercolorist & fabric designer Peg Conley’s visit to our office.  If you’re not familiar with Peg, just one look at her gorgeous watercolor floral fabric designs in delightfully bright & vivid colors will paint an equally descriptive portrait of her radiant personality!  Her love of nature translates into abstract designs on fabric, bursting in cheery colors, and can be found in past Clothworks collections such as Nature’s Glory, Cultivate Your Joy, and the soon-to-be-released Berries & Blossom.   Behind the joyful artwork of Peg Conley is an equally confident and positive personality.  In fact, Peg has taken all of her wisdom & inspiration & written a book– to help everyone imagine and realize their dreams!

Peg Conley Book

Imagine the Life You’d Love to Live, Then Live It! by Peg Conley has even been picked up by Checker Distributor!!  The holidays are here and wouldn’t this make a perfect gift for someone dear to you?

And in case you missed the Black Friday frenzy, support your local small businesses, such as your LQS (Local Quilt Shop), tomorrow Saturday November 29th for Small Business Saturday!

Clothworks Makes a Splash at Quilt Market!

AMB Booth 1

It’s Quilt Market time and the location this year is in Pittsburgh, PA!  The Clothworks team has worked very hard to beautify our booth at Market with some tantalizing displays of new fabric collections.  If you need a dose of cheeriness, get a load of these pics snapped at market!  The bright color selection of our debut basic line, American Made Brand solids, is sure to turn that frown upside down!!

We’re pleased to introduce our new line of solids, American Made Brand fabric, All-American made solid fabric at Quilt Market this year.  From farm to fabric, the cotton was grown right here in the USA and processed, dyed, and cut onto bolts here, too!!  So c’mon, get happy and feast your eyes on the Clothworks Booth at Quilt Market- Booth # 1944 and 1945.

Peg Conley looks right at home in her booth displaying her vibrant and watercolor-like interpretations of floral and garden-inspired designs.  The quilt and fabric shown in her booth pictured below is from the Clothworks line, Cultivate Your Joy.

Also spotted at this year’s Spring Market is the Penguin & Fish booth.  Designer Alyssa Thomas has been collaborating with Clothworks under the Penguin & Fish name, lending her sweetly whimsical designs to our organic fabric.
