Brenda Ratliff
One of the most influential up-and-comers in the modern quilting world today, Brenda Ratliff prides herself on the business of being creative. Wearing many hats, a successful fabric shop owner, avid quilter, lifestyle blogger at justabitfrayed.com, and pattern designer, has enabled her to hone her skills and grow her following. She is proud to now add fabric designer to her remarkable repertoire. Brenda studied Sociology, Advertising and International Marketing at Kent State University in Ohio. After a decade of working in sales and marketing, Brenda decided to become a stay-at-home mom to concentrate on raising her son. Looking for a new hobby, she discovered the craft of quilting through an acquaintance. She immediately caught the quilting bug and taught herself sewing skills by reading blogs and watching online tutorials. After having a difficult time finding the types of modern fabrics she wanted to use in projects, she decided to launch an online fabric store in 2011, and Pink Castle Fabrics was born. Her once small business run from the basement of her home flourished into a brick and mortar location, and one of the largest online retailers in the U.S. of modern and Japanese import fabrics. Brenda is the founder of the Ann Arbor Modern Quilt Guild and served as their president for four years. She is the founder and organizer of two well-known year round quilting retreats, Camp Stitchalot and Glamp Stitchalot led by expert sewing professionals that attract "campers" from all over the world. Brenda is a regular contributor for FabShop News magazine. Her project designs have graced the pages of leading quilting magazines such as Quilt Now, Modern Patchwork and Fat Quarterly. In 2016, Brenda will be launching Sew Pro, a convention hosted in Chicago, focused on teaching budding fabric designers, authors, pattern designers and bloggers how to create their own business in the sewing world. For the last two years Brenda has worked with RJR on the successful launch of Color Inspirations Club, a solid-of-the-month club featuring Cotton Supreme Solids, now running in its second year. Her first line of print fabric, Pie Making Day, shows off Brenda’s love of vintage fabrics and textiles paired with modern color combinations. Brenda shares, "It is an honor for me to be a part of the RJR team. I love working with such a great bunch of people who really know the industry and to be listed as a designer next to some of quilting’s top professionals."

I’ve always loved sewing and crafts. I’ve tried so many I can’t count them all! From needlepoint, cross stitch, crocheting, knitting, embroidery, just to mention a few, but when I found applique, I knew I found my passion. I’m at peace when I’m designing applique, and for me the process is pure joy. It speaks to me in a way that no other craft form can. To live my passion is a dream come true. I design fabric for Moda Fabrics and my first line will debut at Spring Market, May 21st, 2010! It’s sweet sophistication, and so, so chic. You and your baby will love it! Designing is my second career, and the one I love most. My first career was an event planner for a Four Star hotel. After years of planning weddings, business meetings and social events I can now spend my time planning quilts! I feel so fortunate. My husband and I live in Northern California surrounded by pets; a few cats and two wonderful dogs. I’m always busy rearranging our home, adding flea market finds, and bargains I cant resist. I love cottage style decorating mixed with a simplified shabby chic. It’s this style that influences many of my designs. I’ve been known to bring home old windows, beds and other vintage finds waiting for a repair or two. I mix and match vintage with new, dark woods with whites, velvet with chenille. Anything goes in my decorating style. If I love it, I use it. My studio is a 400 sq. ft. loft area of our home with natural lighting, big work spaces, and collections that I love. It’s the center of Bunny Hill and I spend most of my time in the studio. I hope you enjoy making my designs and that they bring a smile to you and your family. Wishing you many happy hours of applique and quilting!

Cheryl Haynes - The Prairie Grove Peddler
I started designing patterns for my dolls in 1992 and sold them through the same craft fairs and local quilt shops. It was a great time for crafts. In 1993, I attended my first International Quilt Market & Festival in Houston, Texas. What a wonderful experience! I knew I was hooked. I added quilted wall hanging patterns in 1994 and started designing craft books for Darrow Production Company that same year. I have been fortunate to design books, not only Darrow Productions, but for Design Originals, Jeanette Crews Designs and McCall’s Creates as well. Over the years, I have been honored to have quilts displayed in Calendars by Current, Inc., QuiltMaker’s and other quilting magazines. My Father Christmas quilt was on the cover of Keepsake Quilting in 2001. I added punchneedle patterns and cross stitch charts similar to my quilt patterns in 2004. I have designed well over 300 patterns and books so far and don’t plan to stop anytime soon. I now reside in the Missouri countryside with the sound of cows, horses and bull frogs croaking in the pond. The bliss was interrupted by the overwhelming sounds of the Cicadas this past summer but they have since gone away. My grandkids usually get a tractor ride when they come to visit because they will not leave without it! They also like to go fishing in the pond and playing with the minnows. Besides the ice cream and tractors, we do our best to spoil them. My kids all live close so we get to enjoy them often.

Chloe’s Closet represents a longing for the past both in color and pattern. Her designs spring from her collection of childhood trinkets and flea market treasures. No one ever would have thought that being a pack rat would inspire a career of fabric design! Her passion for all that is retro brings a flare of playfulness and innocence to every collection she designs.

Cosmo Cricket - Eric & Julie Comstock
Cosmo Cricket - Eric & Julie Comstock
So, you want to know a little bit about the most fabulous scrapbook and printed paper manufacturer around. Well, let me tell you!

To prove that they were certifiably insane, three years ago Eric and Julie Comstock, two artists, decided to start their own company. They launched Cosmo Cricket in the summer of 2006 at the Craft and Hobby Association trade show. The idea was to have the best designed paper, really cool embellishments and a lot of fun. Things took off much faster than predicted and the first year was a scramble just trying to keep up. However, now, three years later, they are running like a well oiled machine that only has a few loose bolts.

Dan Morris grew up in Carmel, New York an hour north of New York City. At age eleven, he began studying art under sculptor, Paul Rudin. Dan continued his art study throughout high school and later attended Temple University, where he studied architecture. Dan began his art and licensing career in 1994. From his first portfolio of work he acquired his first two art licenses. The first was designing greeting cards and gift products for Sunrise Greetings. The other was creating Tour shirt designs for rock artists such as Blues Traveler, The Grateful Dead, The Band, and Bob Marley. From that early, diverse clientele, Dan went on to develop a wide-ranging portfolio of art which today can be seen on hundreds of different products at major retailers throughout the country. Home Décor, ceramics, stationery collections, and fabrics are just a few categories Dan’s art is featured on. Dan’s celestial/sun and moon calendars have been best sellers since 1999, and his many fabric collections are popular in crafting, quilting and manufacturing markets. In 1995, Dan created his best selling line of Tween decal art which he has recently updated as well.



 
Deb Strain
Deb Strain
Deb, her husband Scott, three children, Arrin, Katie, and Taylor live in a small wooded area at the edge of Gettysburg, Ohio. Her husband and family lovingly built their Saltbox home, which is the namesake of their Folk Art Stationery line that they began in early 1995. In 1996, Deb left her position as an art teacher for the past nine years to devote herself solely to her family and the development of her own art and business. "Many of my images have a folk art flavor to them, increasingly leaning toward the primitive. I have grown to love the warmth and friendliness of old quilts, gardens and Americana." Inspirations for several of her paintings have come from dolls created by Anne McKinney, an artist in her own right. Detailed images that touch a familiar heartstring or bring a quiet smile to the viewer, create the basis of her portfolio. "I am continually collecting ideas and images for my next illustration, whether it be from nature, antique shops, friends or my own imaginings. A painting is usually constructed from several scraps of ideas and then carefully pieced together to make a whole...similar to the quilts that I have come to treasure. Finally, my inspiration comes from the wonderful and loving support that is all around my life, from those in my own family, the staff in our own business and the company and the stores that I work with. I feel like I have so many people cheering me on. We truly work in a kind part of the business world, one that gives back in friendship as well as other benefits...and that is one of the most cherished qualities there is."

Debbie has always loved fabric and learned to sew garments at the age of nine. In 1982, she learned to quilt and it quickly became one of her passions. Soon she was designing patterns for quilts that look difficult to make but are really easy for beginners. Debbie’s designs use her ‘No Diamonds No “Y” Seams’ technique to make them very easy to piece. She publishes patterns under the name Calico Carriage Quilt Designs and is an internationally traveling teacher for quilt guilds and quilt shops. In 2005, she was invited to California to tape an episode of Simply Quilts with Alex Anderson for HGTV. In 2013 and again in 2015 Debbie was nominated for Teacher of the Year by the International Association of Professional Crafters. In 2014 Debbie taped her first online quilt class for Craftsy. Her quest for all things new has brought her to the world of fiber dyeing. She loves all kinds of dyeing from the ancient art of Indigo to the fun newer art of Ice Dye. In 2016 she is going to Japan for 10 days to further her study of Shibori and Indigo. Her adventures of traveling, teaching and meeting new people have been a dream come true.
