Riley Blake designs is a family-owned fabric manufacturer based in Alpine, Utah. The company, which has just celebrated its tenth anniversary, was created to provide high-quality fabrics to inspire and delight quilters, sewists and makers. 

The company has partnered with local and international artists to design fabric lines with a vintage feel. Its materials reflect a contemporary feel for colour, resulting in versatile fabrics for quilting apparel, crafting or home décor. 

Sara Davies MBE, founder at Crafter’s Companion, said: “Riley Blake Designs has produced some wonderful fabrics with some impressive partners throughout the years, so I am both honoured and thrilled that I am able to be a part of such a fantastic collaboration.

“The Sew Retro range is a modern twist on my love of retro florals and geometric patterns. What we have created is a versatile collection of pretty, fun, statement prints and I’m really excited to share our first collection with everyone.”

Cindy Cloward, Creative Director and Owner at Riley Blake Designs added: “Riley Blake Designs is thrilled to partner with Sara and Crafter’s Companion. We’ve long admired her creativity and we’re excited to launch her first collection, Sew Retro this Summer.”
