[I just returned from Quilt Market, a fabric trade show in Houston, where my debut line with Andover Fabrics was previewing. I had the chance to interview a few other talented designers + am so happy to share their incredible words of wisdom and encouragement while I am traveling again this week. I hope you enjoy!]
It was such a treat to connect with Jennifer Moore of monaluna and her husband, David, at the show. Jennifer also took Holly Becker’s Blogging Your Way class, and it is always fun to meet other alumna out there in the real world. She has a wonderful, fresh energy that translates beautifully to her fabrics. Jennifer has been getting a ton of great press lately, so I am flattered to have her answer a few questions. Here’s Jennifer –
What are you most excited to be showing off at this Quilt Market?
Our new collection, Taali, is coming out in 3 weeks. Sewing samples for the booth was exciting. This was my first time sewing with it — and I love the feel of it.
What keeps you inspired?
I respond to traveling — seeing the world in a fresh way, even if it isn’t very far — just a hike. I love getting out and noticing things in a fresh light.
What one piece of advice would you give someone who wanted to pursue their own creative dream?
Stick with it. It’s easy to get discouraged or off track, but find what you do well and stick to that. And go to trade shows — it’s amazing how many people and connections you make.
