Outer Space - it glows in the dark!

Last week I received a nice big package of sample yardage from Camelot Fabrics, and I took some pictures of my Outer Space fabric. This collection glows in the dark - I tested it out and it works really well! So cool.

The collection at a glance.

Astronauts - in daylight, and at night. Sorry the picture didn't come out clear,  really what do you expect - I was taking the photo in the dark!

Planets and Stars


Outer Space A-B-C's


You can find them all at a quilt shop near you.

Vita Mechachonis Returns For Seventh Year at Surtex 2013

Portsmouth, NH : With her signature blend of colorful and quirky art, Vita Mechachonis returns to Surtex for the seventh year, showcasing her newest collections of art for kids and funky adults – juvenile, holiday, birthday, novelty, floral, geometric, and everything in between.

2012 was a busy and exciting year for Vita. She helped launch premium wedding stationery company Kleinfeld Paper, a division of the world-renowned Kleinfeld Bridal family, serving as both Art Director and a featured designer. Her partnership continues with LookLoveSend, providing birth announcements, party invitations, holiday cards and more. Her fabric line with Camelot Fabrics continues to flourish, especially her glow-in-the-dark line Outer Space, and this past year saw more children’s puzzles made with MEGA Brands, available nationwide.

Among her newest collections debuting at Surtex this year are a toddler sea animal theme, elegant birds and birdhouses, Christmas, baby animals, florals, and much more. Vita is looking to expand her licenses in tabletop, bedding, and home d├ęcor, and to further develop her success with paper, stationery, toys and textiles.  Visit her at Surtex 2013, booth 435. To schedule an appointment, or to inquire more about her artwork, please contact her at 603-498-7901, or email
