Extra!! Extra!! It’s Showtime …

Posted by on December 14, 2013

My day job took me to the Showtime ITMA (International Textile Market Association)  Market. The market specifically for fabric, leather, and trimmings. It is held twice a year in June and December.  This December it was from the 8th-11th.  I was thrilled to get to go to High Point and see what the ITMA had to offer. Wow!  I love color and there was a lot of color.  Explore some of the in depth reports from Madcap Cottage, StyleBeat, Traci Zeller, Nest by Tamara, and All the Best Blog.  They were selected to be the social media gurus of this event. 

Here are a few of my favorites from Wednesday:
Al Fresco Functional Fabrics
Tesoro del Mare by Karen Roberston
Drop Anchor – Navy

Cresting – Navy

From Kravet Fabrics:

I didn’t write down what this fabric is called
but I’m obsessed with it!!

Madira Papaya
(comes in other variations)

 echodesign for Kravet Collection
Vinaya Festival

From Lacefield Designs :

From Fabricut:
Ikat Paisley
Mulberry (other variations available)

 From Hamilton Fabrics:


It was so much fun to see all the fabrics, the trends, and figure out which colors are going to be popular.  I obviously have a thing for paisley… I didn’t even realized it until I started looking at these pictures.   I’m so curious to see what proves to be popular on the upholstery in April’s High Point Market.  Which are your favorites??  I’d love to know.

Dashing – xoxo
