eQuilter CREATURE FEATURE:
It's all about animals this week,
starting with the new 'Peacocks' collection from Elizabeth's Studio.
The jeweled colors, gold metallic, and lush garden imagery stopped the warehouse in its tracks!
It gets even wilder with 'Living Wonders' from Fabri-Quilt.
Lions, bears, giraffes and tigers prowl through this collection, as well as a heaping helping of
puffins, penguins, and
koalas to satisfy every taste.
Or take a
visit to the woods and spend time with the wolves, eagles, and deer you'll find there.
'Privileged Pups' from Kanvas Studio - these pooches love to shop, while
wild horses of 'Blue Mist' gallop into a desert sunset.
Some lovely roses await, along with
colorful garden birds, and the
botanic 'Postcard Garden' by Michelle Palmer filled with tints of summers past.
Don't miss the
new hot & cold tote bags from Kona Bay! These eco-friendly reusable bags printed with Asian themes are durable, insulated, and make great gifts.
Top this all off
with flirty pin-ups from Alexander Henry, the
gang from Yo Gabba Gabba, and a
slice of pie
from the diner - it's been quite a trip!

|Looking for Good News
Between the election, the hurricane, and war, I bet many of you have felt overwhelmed and switched off the news.
Because I am a business owner and a trend-watcher, I feel compelled to keep watching the news.
If I keep looking, I can always find the silver lining in the news.
In a CNN video clip this week, a Brooklyn gang member said the gang members had stopped fighting because there was nothing left to fight for.
Instead, they are pitching in together, to help the elderly and those in desperate need in the metro area.
In a New York Times article, it described affluent hipsters in trilby hats, coming from Manhattan to rip out rotten drywall and mud-soaked carpets in ruined Staten Island homes.
For those who come to help and face the devastation on the ground level, their lives are forever changed, along with those who have lost everything.
A whole generation of compassion will spring from this tragedy.
Last week I met the founder of
Engineers Without Borders, who had just been appointed
Special Science Envoy by Hillary Clinton...and I heard Bernard describe an engineering project he started, that has Israeli and Palestinian engineers working together for a solution.
"Hey we are all just fellow nerds" he explained.
EWB promotes peace worldwide by bringing people together to build something better.
I have posted 2 new videos this weekend -
the first one is from the CU Chapter of
Engineers Without Borders - filmed during their trip to Rwanda this last summer.
You'll see Andrew Maier in the film - who has come to eQuilter recently to discuss the next phase of our partnership together.
When you watch this video, you'll see the faces of the children we are helping there.
The other video is
Sophie's "Kids Eye Review" of the Houston Quilt Festival - sure to bring a smile! This video includes a couple quilts from Pokey Bolton's fundraiser for animal shelters, which raised over $20K! Woo hoo!
I need to ask all of you a favor -
please be sure to share the project link, when you share information about our huge
Hurricane Sandy quilt drive.
We have received packages of quilts this week that should have gone directly to
Timeless Treasures in NY, we've received some unfinished quilts, and quilts with animal hair/odors, and we want to make sure that
everyone reads the guidelines before sending their quilts.
To all the guilds, groups and individuals
busy making and sending quilts for Hurricane Sandy survivors, THANK YOU for your compassion and generosity!
sharing your Passion for Fabric...
