Fabric Elements Projects

I am so excited to be able to now talk about my new program I designed with Fabric Editions.  Based upon my Fabric Art Collage books and techniques, the new program is called Fabric Elements.  Fabric Elements  is designed to fit the creative needs of both the novice and the experienced crafter, mixed media enthusiast, collage maker (both fabric and paper combined), scrapbooker looking to add new elements to their layouts, journalers looking to add texture and new techniques, art quilters and fiber artists looking to add paper and tactile fibers to their work.  The concept is new, exciting, and has many features.  It is even up for an award at CHA!

The press release for the program is listed below!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Greenville, SC – Fabric Editions, Inc. is pleased to announce the nomination of the new product line called Fabric Elements to the Craft and Hobby Association’s (CHA) Hot Products for 2015 in the Fabric/Craft category. The product winners in each category will be announced at the CHA Foundation Gala on Sunday, January 11 from 6:00pm-10:00pm in the Convention Center Ballroom during the CHA Annual Mega Show taking place in Anaheim, California.

Fabric Elements is a cooperative development of products that feature the design, work and inspiration of mixed-media Artist, Rebekah Meier. Rebekah has a long standing reputation as a featured designer of mixed media projects to magazines such as ‘Cloth, Paper, Scissors’ and other publications from Interweave Press as well as Stampington & Company publications.

“Rebekah Meier’s sterling reputation and experience was a natural fit to join in partnership with us, since we are the leader in pre-cut fabrics.” says Marsha Walling, CEO of Fabric Editions, Inc. “Her style of art was the perfect match to the fabric substrates we were planning to bring to market as pre-cuts. We anticipated the trend in providing a fabric foundation for artwork that we were starting to see at in some of the art quilts, and knew this crossed over perfectly with more experienced scrapbooking and stamping crafters.”

The product line is made up of 32 SKU’s, though retailers can pick and choose the product story that suits their consumer. In the line are 9 fabric substrates, 12 cotton fabric squares (known as fat quarters, as they are a quarter yard of fabric), 6 embellishment SKU’s including three stencils, tissue paper, and lace trims, and 3 self-contained kits. Additionally, the product line will launch with an exclusive technique book by Rebekah Meier showing her latest mixed-media projects and step by step instructions using these fabrics.

“I’m so excited for Fabric Elements to be nominated as a CHA Hot Product! It’s been wonderful to have the opportunity to create these products with Fabric Editions and share my love for Mixed Media,” said Rebekah Meier.
