Have you started putting together your shopping list for Road 2015?
We hope it includes Road to California’s 20th Anniversary Celebration fabric designed by Alexander Henry Fabrics. This commemorative fabric comes in two different color backgrounds and in two different weights: cotton and heavy oxford.
To encourage creativity – and some fun — with this great fabric, Road to California and ByAnnie’s Soft and Stable are sponsoring the Road to California Tote Bag and Purse Challenge. Cash prizes and merchandise totaling $1,000 will be awarded for purses or tote bags made from the heavy oxford weight of the 20th Anniversary fabric. The bags or purses can be any size or style, uniquely designed or made from a pattern and can include other fabric, embellishments, hardware, or stabilizers. Entries will be juried and the winners, along with a few additional selected entries, will be displayed at Road to California’s 2016 show.
