We asked Lauren and Jessi Jung for an update on what they have been doing since their first line, Botany for Moda, was released this month. Can I just say -- I got tired just reading all of the stuff they're doing. Weddings... a new job... patterns... scrapbook paper... And on top of that, they are showing the most enticing little bits of their next line for Moda! Read for details! In the meantime, I'm gonna go take a nap ;) And, I'm stowing away that fabric photo-booth idea for the future! Thanks, Lauren!
website and blog, while my mom has been busy with patterns and trunk shows...She actually just participated in one this past Saturday at one of her favorite quilt shops - Inman Quilt Cottage in South Carolina. They displayed our collection of items sewn using Botany. The shop had free patterns, fat-quarter giveaways, and quilt kit drawings all featuring Botany! All in all, it was a HUGE success, and there were many happy winners. (Pssst, the photo on the left is a free pattern on the L+J website!)
In addition to all of the fabric stuff, I recently got a new job in New Jersey at a software component company where I'm in charge of redesigning the company logo, their product branding, and the website...a responsibility that I'm finding to be a LOT of fun! I generally design in a rather girly style, so working for a software company has definitely required me to stretch myself artistically!
her photography website, and it will be launching this Friday!) In exchange for my website help, she's been busy taking all of the photographs for our patterns that will be coming out with our next line...a win/win for both of us!)
Another big endeavor is our new scrapbooking gig! Timecraft, a paper company in the UK, has recently reached out to us about creating some paper lines for them! We were able to use some of our previous prints, but a lot of additions needed to be made. I've been busy adding to this original set of patterns, since scrapbooking lines consist of a whopping set of 24 patterns (as opposed to the 8-10 patterns you will find in your average fabric line).
And...that about wraps up our last few months. Like I said...it's been CRAZY!
