Update to the February Issue

American Quilt Retailer printed the wrong manufacturer of Pete the Cat fabrics in our February 2017 issue. We strive hard each and every day to avoid these mistakes and regret any confusion with this wrong information. Please enjoy this more detailed explanation of the Pete the Cat collection:

He’s here!!!   Marcus Fabrics is thrilled to present our newest licensed character, PETE THE CAT, under the Studio 37 division.   He’s undoubtedly the world’s coolest, most laid-back feline!  Created by artist James Dean over 13 years ago, Pete is loved by an international legion of fans for his mellow attitude, groovy style and his countless activities and interests!

DIY enthusiasts will want to immerse themselves in Pete’s colorful style by decorating a room or sewing up fun fashions, toys and more… The panel is designed to create a quilted bedtime book, an easy cheater quilt, or other great projects.  The cotton prints and flannels launch at an exciting time in the Pete the Cat merchandising mix, and they’re the perfect complement to Pete’s growing product line:

  • New BOOKS are introduced by HarperCollins multiple times per year, and some of them include music! New fans and readers continue to discover Pete with each series, and the addition of DIY quilts and other fabric projects is a natural fit.  It’s no wonder Pete is loved by parents, teachers and librarians as much as the kids.
  • Other current PRODUCTS include soft dolls, socks, backpacks and totes, figurines and ornaments, puppets, craft projects and more.
  • Watch for the new animated TV SERIES, scheduled for Fall 2017/2018!

***  25 Million + hits on YouTube
