huffington post Barley Massey Jennifer Barton Fabrications Kip and Fig article april 2014-01

April 2014

This Huffington Post article was talking about Barley Massey and
Fabrications - Barley's hub of upcycling/recycling crafting in East London.

Barley used our Cheeky Blackbird design to demonstrate
different stitching techniques using upcycled fabrics!

I love Barley's eco-friendly approach and how the 'stitching sampler'
looks a bit abstract and adds texture.

Listen to Barley being interviewed about the transformative nature of crafting for
Mind Crafting - we second the motion for creative freedom
there's no applique police we know of...

Patchwork storyboard

Kip & Fig have been featured in Love Quilting & Patchwork Bookazine

UK print copies have sold out - but you can grab your digital edition here

 Also available in the US, Jo-Anns and B&N

"Kip & Fig's templates are perfect for patchwork and applique - the modern
shapes plus ideas for colours to fill them are too appealing to resist.

I immediately wanted to grab my fabric and start cutting, and was so inspired that I even created a simple project for the magazine to share the Kip & Fig fun!

Editor Jenny Fox-Proverbs

Thank you to Editor Jenny Fox-Proverbs (aka crafter extraordinaire Sew Crafty Fox)!
