American Quilt Retailer is presenting Meet Me in St. Louis–an event designed to connect quilt shop owners with designers. Over the next few weeks we’ll be introducing you to the eight designers featured in the AQR booth (#2507) at International Quilt Market in St. Louis. The complete schedule is included in the April 2017 issue of American Quilt Retailer (shipping to subscribers on April 24). Today we introduce you to The Whole Country Caboodle.
The Whole Country Caboodle specializes in fusible appliqué and their own fabric lines that coordinate with their patterns. Leanne Anderson is known for her whimsical characters that are sure to put a smile on your face. Leanne, and her daughter Kaytlyn, create colorful fabric collections for Henry Glass Fabrics. Each collection tells a story or is somehow meant to inspire those who use it.
Shops love the fused precut appliqués they produce as they serve as quick easy projects and provide great “Make and Take” classes. “Scatter Love throughout the Year” pattern is a wonderful project to do as a Block of the Month Class and they love working with shops to create the best product possible for their customers.
Trunk Shows are also available. Leanne prefers working with each shop individually; allowing them to put together the Trunk Show that suits their needs.
If you’re looking for a get-a-way that will provide rest, relaxation and ridiculous fun, check out the “Sow in Peace” quilting retreat. The retreat is nestled at the end of a dead end drive and your front yard is the beautiful Cedar Lake. Workspace is set up in Leanne’s studio where you can sew and play 24/7. Check out all that is available through The Whole Country Caboodle and consider a trip to Sow in Peace today!
Come meet Leanne and Kaytlyn in the AQR booth #2507 on Saturday, May 20 at 4 p.m.
