    Da Textile Samurai aka the Wine Eagle

    Publisher douglas@konabay.com


    Being from Honolulu, I am used to 80-85 days being the norm. The trade winds tend to keep it a cool 85. Occasionally, though, the Kona winds, currents coming north from the equator, make it muggy and miserableeven in beautiful Hawaii.

    Kona Bay Fabrics is in Redmond (just east of Seattle), Washington. Weve had a presence in Washington since 1994 when we opened our first warehouse and I have spent a lot of time in the gorgeous Pacific Northwest.

    Without a doubt, this has been the hottest year in the Seattle area (and the state) since I began coming here in 1994. Historic records were broke in both June and July. This week were edging towards 90 by mid-week and triple digits on the other side of the state.

    I bring this up because the Textile Samurai is also now the Wine Eagle with the launch of our wine businessWinefromWashington.com. Our labelTRELLIS GATEshowcases the outstanding Washington grapes which continue to receive world recognition.

    The early hot temperatures have Washington wine growers harvesting grapes nearly a month ahead of schedule, with many starting last week. We are fortunate to source our grapes from vineyards being managed by some of the states most expert growers. It is a science and our winemaker is known as one of the best in the business.

    Quilters in Washington and across the nation, Im told, have not been deterred by the national weather trends. Quilting and the love of fabric never slows. Consumer shows, quilt shop hops, row by row experiences and more are thriving.

    In this issue of Fabric Vine, Georgie Gerl has again brought you a wonderful selection of projects to take you into fall season. In addition, find out about a great show Quilt! Knit! Stitch going on just south of us in Portland, Oregon. In its second year, it looks to be a fun time to be had by all.

    As always, youll also find some great recipes. Look for samosas, jam and sangria ideas to serve at your summer gathering.

    Please make sure to stay cool and hydrated as summer marches on. And, if you have critters at home, please make sure they have lots of water, too.

    I suggest you visit your favorite quilt shop (they probably have AC!), forget about the heat and check out the latest Kona Bay fabric releases. If youre home and staying cool, visit www.konabay.com to see whats coming this fall.

    Thank you for your support and the time you spend with Fabric Vine.

    Mahalo and Aloha!
