A Company that Cares...

Moda is hosting a special event, "Just One Star".

 The challenge is to piece, quilt and bind 100 quilts in 100 days using the Flag of Valor pattern by Minick and Simpson. The deadline for star blocks is May 1, 2011 so that we can meet our quilt deadline by Flag Day, June 14, 2011. Read more information about this event here...

One of the greatest things about working for Moda Fabrics/United Notions are the people you work with and most of all the leader of the company... Mark Dunn.  There was article written about him today which really sums it all down to one thing.  Caring.  He is an owner that cares about quilts, the industry... the people. A few years ago, he started a fabric collection under his name, Howard Marcus, that focuses on recreating antique quilts and fabrics to support a cause.  A new cause for each new collection.  You can read more here...
Many of you my already know of Moda Fabrics, however if you don't know very much about Moda, I bid you to come learn more and give sewing a try. You just might get addicted.


  1. What an awesome idea. Happy St. Patty's Day!

  2. Happy St. Paddy's Day. Moda is a wonderful company. I made 2 stars and put them in the mail on Monday. I'll make more if they need them. Hugs

  3. I will *try* to make a star. I have a hard time getting stars the perfect size.

    I just wanted to say I know he has got to be a great person to work for because I have never met/dealt with anyone at Moda who wasn't extremely kind and caring. That kind of stuff comes from the top.
