Summery Vibes: Sun Kissed Fabric Collection from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Even though it's technically winter, here in Florida we're used to warm sunshine this time of year! You'll often find us Floridians decorating palm tress with Christmas lights, and there's been several years where I've even gone to the beach on New Year's Day with the family. 

With this in mind, we decided to stick to what we know and bring in some warmer climates with Maureen Cracknell’s latest collection, Sun Kissed! Inspired by soaking up the sunshine and glowing skin after a cool swim, this fabric line features cute smiley suns, swimming ...

A Creative Homage: Art District Fusion from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Have you ever spent a day exploring an artsy neighborhood?! You’d probably start your day, grabbing a cup of coffee at a cute cafe, wander in and out of art galleries, browse small shops that are filled with unique, artisanal crafts, and of course, spend some time photographing all the amazing murals you’d unexpectedly find in alleyways. In Florida, if you're looking to see some street art or explore some unique shops, galleries, plant stores and delicious cafes, our biggest art district here is "Wynwood" which is a fun place to head to!

A Tribute: Legendary Fabric Collection from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Often when you have a creative goal in mind, you just have to begin and start somewhere. Eventually, you'll learn along the way and get better at whatever it is that you're setting out to do! There's often no mentors to ask beforehand, no check list, no guidelines...just you and that gut feeling. However, with patience, persistence, and of course practice, you can achieve anything really! I'm sure all of us can relate to this because we've all started off somewhere. Just think back to how far you've come, and take a moment ...

Hawaiian Getaway: "Aura" Fabric Collection from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

  Hawaii

If you haven't gone yet, you MUST go to Hawaii at least once in your lifetime! There's so much beautiful scenery to take in there! The sunsets, the gorgeous Pacific Ocean, the amazing food like fresh pineapple..it's truly a gorgeous and magical place. My favorite part of visiting Hawaii was going horse back riding where "Jurassic Park" was filmed, I felt like at any moment a dinosaur was going to pop out of the huge trees there. It was completely surreal and breathtaking.

Dramatic Opulence: "Virtuosa" Fabric Collection from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Hi Makers,

Do any of you LOVE going to see plays or performances?!

It's such a fun event! Getting all dressed up in a nice outfit, entering the theater and taking a seat, waiting for those red curtains to lift up and for the show to begin! From the introduction of the characters to hearing their stories be told through action or songs, the lightning, the set design, the costumes, and overall mood is just incredible, especially from a production point of view! Theater reminds us to be in the present and to be fully immersed in what's ...

Falling for Fall: Autumn Vibes Fabric Collection from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Happy Fall, Ya'll!

Hope you're as excited as I am with this new season that's finally here!

Hands down, fall is my favorite time of year, even though we're here in Florida where we don't really have seasons..minus hurricane season! I still like to pretend the leaves change color and force myself to wear "cozy layers" despite the humidity. There's something so festive about this time of year that's super exciting! It's that time when you get to gather with your family and friends, eat a ton of pumpkin-flavored foods, continue ...

Inspired by Rococo Art: Decadence Fabric Collection from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Hi Makers! 

Besides being all about fabric, are you also an "art lover?!" I'm definitely one! From an early age, my parents introduced me to many art museums near and far around the world where I had the incredible opportunity to see so many types of art. It was during this time I was introduced to the "Rococo Period." This art movement consisted of highly ornate and a extravagant style of architecture, art and music that flourished in Europe in the 18th century. I fell in-love with all of it!

As I grew older and went to art school ...

Hi Makers! 

Hope August has been a productive month for you with summer vacations and back-to-school! :) I recently went on a trip to Yosemite in California, and came back flooded with so much inspiration to create new projects! Being surrounded by mountains and forests is amazing inspiration, just in case you need some! Luckily, fall and the holidays are quickly approaching..along with some other exciting events like bridal and baby showers, so I'll have plenty of good excuses to make some handmade gifts. 

Here at AGF, we’ve been working hard on crafting up sewing projects for you ...

Fussy Cutting Projects- Find the Perfect Prints! from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

 Hello Makers, 

What is your go to quilting technique? EPP, scrappy quilts, foundation paper piecing, quilt-as-you- go?  There are so many ways to create a single quilt and whatever way you choose why not incorporate a bit of fussy cutting to add a dose of extra cuteness to your handmade creations. When I first started working at Art Gallery Fabrics about  4  and a half years ago, I was introduced to all things quilty! One of the first quilting terms I learned was the word "Fussy Cutting", which I thought at the time was a pretty silly name. When you ...

#AGFMakerMonday from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Hi Makers!

Since it's Monday and I'm sure all of us can always use some motivation! Let's face it, all of us love sewing. We enjoy the entire process from start to finish, especially when we're giving our finished piece to someone we love. Sewing is part of a movement called  "slow living" which means allowing yourself time to create when you can. Sewing allows you to fully be in the moment and take life "slow." While sewing, there's no distractions. It's just you and your creative magic. There's no phones, no computers ...

Garden Love: "Gathered" Fabric Collection from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Just like sewing, gardening is so rewarding. You get to plant something with your own hands, then watch it grow and come to life! Ever since I can remember, I've always enjoyed being in a garden, seeing all of the vegetables and fruit start off so small in size and how with patience and dedication of tending to them, they would get bigger in size and eventually turn ripe. When you finally got the chance to eat them, it was satisfying. Growing up in Florida, my parents had a "tropical garden" that had tons of mango (my favorite), orange ...

Underwater Queendom: "Sirena" Fabric Collection from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

If you grew up in the 1980's, it was inevitable that as a little girl you would end up becoming obsessed with the Disney movie, The Little Mermaid.  I remember when this cartoon movie came out, all the other little girls at school also loved the main character,  Ariel who was a gorgeous, red-headed mermaid. We would all have "singing contest" at school and would compete to see who had the "best mermaid voice." On the weekends when my family and I would head to the beach, I would dive into the Atlantic Ocean and splash around, pretending my ...
