2024 Island Batik Ambassador Unboxing Video

 Oh, my goodness!  This is such a treat to be an Island Batik Ambassador for my 11th year.  I did a video of what's in the first box we received from Island Batik and the industry sponsors, and some photos.  

Sponsors include Oliso Irons, Aurifil Thread, Studio 180* Designs, Schmetz needles, Hobb's Batting and Funky Friends Factory.  Island Batik has planned a wonderful year for the Ambassadors, with great challenges and fun projects, as well as give-aways for YOU!  Follow along on this adventure with me and the rest of the team for inspiration and to see the latest fabrics and projects.  

Here's a link to my video. 

Jan 2024 Unboxing Video

Some of the items I've received are in photos below.  There's more to come, and details to follow soon.  There's a Log Cabin blog hop in February, so you'll see my project with Romance Gardens then.  

4 yards White, Black and Grey solids, and 1/2 yard cuts of a variety of Foundations, including solids, and the background fabric, 6 yards of Almond. 

Schmetz Needles, Stash Builder rolls, 4 Patch Square Up tool from Studio 180*. 

Precuts:  Strip Sets of Playful Purples gradations, (always available) Squiggles, Dots and Lines, a new collection, plus 10" squares of Precious PInks, and new Dots and Doodles. 

Oliso TG1600 Pro iron in Butterscotch. 
Also included was Hobb's Wool batting in Lap size. Additional batting and Aurifil thread will be in another box coming soon, and a second shipment will come in June.  I'm so blessed to have this opportunity to create, be challenged, and inspire others.  

Please check out the Ambassador tab on Island Batik to meet the rest of the team, and see their unboxing videos.  Watch for the announcement for the February blog hop and a chance to win a collection that will be showcased, and shipping to stores soon.  

Thanks for stopping by!

Great video, Maryellen! I'm glad yours worked on the second take. I just saw that we are blog hop partners. I received some of the same precuts, too. I can't wait to see what you make with Romance Garden. I love how saturated and dramatic the colors are. Happy sewing!
