Meet 2016 Marketplace Vendor: Riley Blake Designs

Saturday, January 9th, 2016

Last year, Road introduced Marketplace where top manufacturers in the quilting industry shared their knowledge and expertise directly with our guests. Located right in the center of the main show floor, Marketplace is the destination for innovation and inspiration on the latest and most popular quilting products. This year, there will be 6 companies in Marketplace, including Riley Blake Designs.RBDLogo_BlueFrame

‘’Fabric is our fun!’’ is the perfect logo to describe this innovative fabric manufacturer.

Riley Blake Designs was founded eight years ago by Bret and Cindy Cloward. They had ‘’come home’’ to the fabric business after pursuing careers and raising a family living in many parts of the country. Bret and his siblings grew up in the fabric business as his father owned fabric stores near Salt Lake City, Utah. His brother and brother-in-law joined the business, and it has been growing ever since. Riley Blake Designs’ collections are created by a stable of creative, talented designers and features colorful, whimsical designs.blue_quilt

Their fabrics inspire sewists of all kinds: quilters, home decor, and clothing. Riley Blake Designs colorful fabrics include cottons, flannels, sparkle cottons, organic cotton, knits, dreamy, and laminates in a range of designer and basic prints.  Their coordinating “Sew Together” line consists of a bevy of complementary buttons, ric-rac, ribbons and lace, project kits and panels, zippers by the yard, and crocheted flowers.

Riley Blake Designs’ Marketplace booth will be showcasing quilts that have free, downloadable patterns available. They are also sponsoring a mini shop hop with four stores.  Riley Blake Designs will be giving away each day of the show, a Zombie Love Tote Bag for those guests participating in the shop hop.zombie_bag_night_4 In addition to the Marketplace, Riley Blake will be participating at Roundabout on Friday, demonstrating their exciting new collection, Sashing Stash, available in black, red,and blue.Blue_Sashing Stash_Main To learn more about Riley Blake Designs, visit their website.]]>

Marketplace: No Middleman Here

Tuesday, January 20th, 2015

In most retail situations, the consumer has no choice but to talk to a middleman seller when asking questions about a particular product or service. What would happen if the middleman was cut out and you, the consumer, could learn directly from the wholesaler about the product you were interested in?

Well, that is exactly what Road’s newest feature – Marketplace — is all about.  Carolyn Reese has come up with a way for guests at the show to meet and ask questions directly with top manufacturers in the quilting industry. And it gives the wholesalers a chance to meet their buying public face-to-face, share their techniques and introduce what is up and coming with their product line. 

Eight exhibitors will be stationed in the Marketplace which is located at the front of the Exhibit Hall, right where Road’s guests first come in. Exhibitors that will be in the Marketplace include:

Robert Kaufman Co., Inc.Robert Kaufman Fabrics

Clover USAClover USA

Shannon FabricsShannon Fabrics

This is not a purchase area. Rather, it an area that provides knowledge and expertise from the wholesalers themselves.
