JVT Collection Debuts at Las Vegas World Market

P1010183

I’ve been missing in action here in blogland but I have a good excuse. I was working day and night to get ready for the official launch of The Jackie Von Tobel Collection, my new line of fabrics and pillows, at the Las Vegas World Market.

My collection will be available year round in the Postcards Home Showroom in building A suite 119. Craig and Donna the co-owners of the beautiful showroom have been absolutely wonderful and helped me get everything ready for the debut. Thanks guys!

We had a great launch party and I was thrilled to have some great friends, blogging buddies and fellow designers from all over the country attend.

We introduced some new patterns and colorways including the zebra stripe in coffee and the new Gypsy Flower in coffee.

Here are a few patterns in our cotton candy colorway.

I was floored to see Suzanne Kasler stroll into the showroom and had a nice chat with her. She is definitely one of my favorite designers and such a gracious lady.

Ronda Carmen and her husband made it to my launch party along with Brad Ford and the great gals from Editor at Large, Julia Noran and Sophie Donalson.

My friend and fellow blogger Tobi Fairley came by with her lovely mother.

I also had the pleasure of speaking on a panel discussion on New Media at market with Tobi, Brad, and Ronda. It was moderated by Julia Noran and Sophie Donalson of Editor at Large.

It was a fun panel with loads of tips on how to make social media work to promote and grow your business.

We had a great group in attendance and I had the opportunity to meet a reader of my blog and her sister, in town all the way from the Virgin Islands!
