Kona Bay Fabrics Teams Up with Jason Yenter!!
Kona Bay Fabrics, once again, is leading the way into unexplored territory with the release of their exciting new collection named Shadowland.
This striking tonal collection was inspired by vintage Kona Bay fabric and designed by Jason Yenter, the celebrated President of In The Beginning Fabrics. “We love the captivating collection Jason has created for us,” President of Kona Bay Fabrics, Douglas Eagleson, said excitedly, “It is sure to be the runaway hit of the year!”
Over lunch one day, Eagleson shared a favorite piece of early, immensely popular, Kona Bay fabric with Yenter. He mentioned he was hoping to bring it back for Kona Bay’s twentieth anniversary this year. Yenter, whose family owns In The Beginning Fabrics, is the designer of many successful fabric collections himself. He was fascinated by the subtle elements and printing technique used. He commented that he’d love to be involved in creating a new series of designs bringing into play these unique Kona Bay techniques. With that, the Shadowland Collection was born.
“Kona Bay Fabrics is both blessed and honored in having Jason Yenter—one of the fabric industry’s premier fabric and quilt designers—involved in this dynamic project with Kona Bay,” Eagleson commented, “No one knows fabric design and coloring like Jason and the Shadowland Collection proves this point once again!”
In celebration of this very special industry first, Kona Bay will be releasing their first pattern book at the same time. Shadowland Collection Quilts will feature six gorgeous quilt projects created using the Shadowland Collection. Award winning Quilt Designer, Georgie Gerl, will teach different techniques with each pattern. The Shadowland Collection and book will both be available at local quilt shops this September.
Kona Bay Fabrics, who sells solely wholesale, is taking orders now for the Shadowland Collection and the accompanying book due out September.
The entire Shadowland Collection may be viewed on the Kona Bay Fabrics website at www.konabay.com and orders can be placed by calling Kona Bay Fabrics at 1-800-531-7913.
