Franny liked all of your humorous captions! But ultimately, she couldn't select just one caption. So what did Franny do? After diligent deliberation, including eliciting input from her brother Lou (unfortunately, that rascal Roscoe was in a timeout) and her beloved Twister game ...
Franny turned to our office’s official Magic 8 Ball®, which indicated "Ask again later." Oh no, poor Franny! And so, she pointed her browser to randomizer.org.

By random selection, the winner is: Nicola Arnold

Congratulations! A layer cake of Horizon and charm pack of Paradiso will be in the mail as soon as we receive your mailing address at info@katespain.com

Paradiso Peeks & Photo Caption Contest

Hi everyone! I've been busily getting ready for Quilt Market and wanted to share some photos of my new fabric collection, Paradiso, with you. It will be shipping to stores in March 2015. If you're a shop owner and will be in Houston, please come by the Moda booth #1744 to say hello and to see the collection in person. I'd love to share it with you!

The colors range from hibiscus pinks and coral to lagoon blues and aqua. New for me is a darker charcoal grey (almost but not quite black) that i really love! Here are a couple more photos:
The other wonderful thing is that this line will coordinate beautifully with Horizon to create a perfect tropical paradise. Can't wait to see what you dream up. Actually...now that i'm thinking about it...how about we have a fun giveaway! Just leave a caption for the photo of Franny below and she will pick a winner on October 14th. We'll help her send a layer cake of Horizon annnnd a charm pack of Paradiso off to the lucky winner!
 Have a beautiful weekend!

Autumn Bounty Festival

Come join me at terrain in Westport, CT tomorrow to celebrate this harvest season! There will be lots of treats, workshops, crafts, music and more. You can make your own birdhouse/birdfeeder, vote on the best home-baked pie, learn how to make a pumpkin centerpiece or harvest wreath. Some workshops require pre-registration, so please check the terrain website first. The Westport Farmer's Market will also be there with an abundant market of fresh veggies...so bring your appetite too. Several artists (including me!) will also be there with an assortment of wares from ceramics and scarves to photographs and jewelry. I'll be offering framed and unframed original hand-carved woodblock prints.

Hope you'll come say hi!
Have a beautiful weekend.
