What We Loved at H+H Americas - Part 1

The Moda team is back home after an exciting week in Chicago for the H+H Americas show! This event brings together soft crafts and fiber arts companies and creators from across North America and Europe to inspire crafters and artisans with new products and projects.


The Moda team worked hard to put together a colorful booth showcasing a ton of projects for sewing and crafting enthusiasts. We had bags and totes, pouches and pinnies, cute dresses and pants, fabric and yarn embellishments, sewing- and quilting-themed finished products, notions, and so much more! The event was open to the trade only, so we’re recapping all the good stuff here on the Moda blog for those of you who couldn’t make it!

Let's start with some of the bags and totes we had on display!

Pincushions and other sewing accoutrements are some of our favorite things to make when we need a quick project that’s both pretty and practical. Fortunately, Moda Fabrics stocks plenty of these project patterns!

Hand sewing projects are always a hit. We love it when shops put together mini project kits like these “Hexies To Go” bags that we have on display in our booth! They’ve got all the supplies you need for a fun take-anywhere project, all in a grab-and-go pouch.
