The folks at Spool fabric store and sewing studio are hosting monthly Stitch Parties in conjunction with their sister store, Loop, where crafters can meet up, share ideas and projects and even reconnect with fellow students. This month’s Stitch Party will feature special guest, Jay McCarroll, first season winner of Project Runway and designer of two new quilting lines of fabric.

Lucky for us, Jay hails from Philadelphia, and stopped by to check out his fabric on our shelves. Jay is super nice, and when I asked him about coming to Stitch Party, he happily accepted! He’ll be bringing samples that he’s made with his fabrics, and there will be prizes and goody bags. This is a rare opportunity to meet a talented artist and designer right in your own backyard. Jay is full of creative ideas and is so fun to talk to – don’t be nervous!

Pictured above is Laura Singewald’s quilt made with Jay’s fabrics, the kit for which is available in the Spool online shop.
