As Monday goals go, planning a trip to meet Tula Pink and watch her film her first UK live TV show is pretty cool! She’s here in England for a few days (our shameless Instagram stalking reveals she’s been at The Quilt Room this weekend) and on Wednesday she’ll be on TV… and we’ll be there.
Tula Pink always inspires us to be brave with colour and bold with our print choices! Her fabrics have been bringing vibrant hues to our projects and news pages ever since we launched, so we’re thrilled to be meeting her face-to-face when she visits Sewing Quarter TV this week.
Tula will make her on air debut this Wednesday 7th February. She’s appearing in two shows on the Sewing Quarter channel at 8am and 10am to showcase her All Stars collection, share some special offers and quilting tips. We’ll be behind the scenes to see her in action and we’ll be catching up with her for an exclusive Facebook Live chat at 12.15 pm (UK time) in between shows.
Watch Tula on TV this Wednesday
Only on Freeview channel 78 and Sky channel 678 or watch online at www.sewingquarter.com. You can keep up to date with Tula’s latest news over on her Instagram @TulaPink, Facebook page or at www.tulapink.com.
5 of our Tula Pink favourites…
Her fabric designs have a huge following around the world, inspired by her love of animals and nature (she enjoys hiding animal characters in unusual places in her illustrations) and featuring bold use of colour and pattern. As well as fabrics with haberdashery to match, she even has her own range of tools too, to add a vibrant touch to your quilting table..
We’ve long been hoarding Tula fabrics and featuring her ranges in Love Patchwork & Quilting magazine. Here’s our top 5 Tula ranges that we’ve featured over the years…
1 Pixel Perfect quilt
Showcasing her Acacia fabric collection, we featured this exclusive pattern in our second ever issue.
2. Not just fabrics
No-one does colour like Tula – these Chipper threads by Aurifil were released to match her vibrant range of the same name.
3. Candy Stripes quilt
Nicole Calver’s Candy Stripes quilt in issue 47 (main image at the top of this post) injects colour boosts from her Slow and Steady collection for FreeSpirit Fabrics into a monochrome quilt top.
4. Not just fabrics
OK so this is a bit of a cheat addition to this list as we haven’t featured them in the magazine yet, but Tula’s new collection of Tech Accessories is topping our wish list this Spring. As we haven’t yet discovered a way to quilt a phone case, this is as close as we’re going to get to giving a patchwork makeover to our favourite gadgets!
5. Time warp inspo
Tula’s Elizabeth fabric range is filled with quirky details and Tudor-inspired motifs (from chain mail to monarchs).
