We had a really interesting meeting this last weekend, though it was pretty light attendance with all the other activities going on.
Our guest speaker was Emilie Daly who presented a whole new concept of digitally printed fabric. What an amazing new tool we have available! She is a pattern designer for Modern yardage a company here in Salt Lake City that prints fabric on demand. They have a growing online database of fabric designs to choose from in different sizes and colors. Once you choose your fabric it comes printed in just the amount you need for your project. Never run out of a fabric print again! Designs should always be available so if you end up stashing the fabric and find out 2 years later you need more, you just go online and order another piece. YOu can get a fat quarter or 10 yards at a time. The options are really endless.
