Marcus Fabrics greets Fall 2007 with a new look, and new directions for the independent quilt shops and fabric stores. Its well-earned reputation for fine quality, traditional print design continues; simultaneously, the company is strengthening its product offering with introductions from several new licensed designers.
Long known in the market simply as "Marcus", the company has adopted the name Marcus Fabrics, and developed a new logo to reflect its continued evolution.
"We're excited by the opportunity to mesh these newer avenues with our traditional strengths," says Stephanie Dell' Olio, president of Marcus' retail division. "The combination allows us to offer greater options, which translates into sales for our retail partners and an enhanced creative experience for the consumer."
Specifically, this season's new releases include the debut collection from Australian design firm Prints Charming, along with QuiltSoup's current selections, new vintage-inspired looks from Edelen Wille, and fresh contemporary looks, following the success of the METRO BLUE collection.
Traditional offerings from long-established reproduction fabrics expert Judie Rothermel continue in popularity, from her classic Aunt Grace & Civil War lines to newer Charleston and Lancaster County brands. In addition, Marcus' growing involvement with museums such as Old Sturbridge Village and the New England Quilt Museum demonstrate its ongoing commitment to preserving the traditions of quilting. The Marcus tradition also continues with Faye Burgos' beautiful florals, and new AMERICAN PLAINS, her unique take on the Traditional Americana theme, and Marcus' first collection to address this important category.
Combining the best in design, quality and service, Marcus looks ahead enthusiastically as it continues to serve and support the industry. Visit www.MarcusFabrics.com.
