  • After the Rain

    After the rain, the sun appears and the garden is alive. Birds and insects are busy and the scent of freshness is everywhere. Walking in the garden is my favorite escape - a place where I find my greatest inspiration. I’ve always thought of myself as a botanist of sorts, and botanical drawings and patterns have always been a large part of everything I do. While out on walks I love collecting samples of the most amazing little leaves, flowers or twigs. For this collection I created patterns and groupings of floral shapes, and simplified forms, altered, arranged and rearranged. Arounna immigrated with her family to Canada from Laos at the age of four. While her Canadian upbringing was typical, one thing that became a part of her life even as a child was the importance of making in everyday life. Perhaps instilled by her mother who made everything she needed and educated herself at a local college for work as a seamstress, or perhaps it was her own need to make, her life has been endlessly involved in making. After several art schools, a master’s degree in fine arts and craft residencies in a variety of media, Arounna spent her time between her studio practice and work in education through mentoring and the building of a craft community with events and social media projects. In 2002 Arounna created Bookhou with her husband John Booth as a multidisciplinary studio creating a wide range of fabric-based work, printing and furniture. They have a brick and mortar shop in downtown Toronto where they reside with their two children Lliam and Piper.

  • Color Labyrinth

    I love to paint!! So this collection is a direct result of some of my watercolor paintings and my acrylic paintings. Now I can use my "paintings" in my other passion, quilt making. Katie Pasquini Masopust produces high quality contemporary art quilts that have been coveted and collected by a broad range of admirers. From her early beginnings as a painter dabbling in traditional quilt making, her work has evolved from structured Mandalas and mind-blowing dimensional pieces to painterly landscapes executed with the finest fabrics and most creative stitching techniques. When not in residence at her studio in California she travels the world presenting her contemporary quilting theories and techniques to classes. Awards and accolades have been numerous for Katie, culminating with her 2005 induction into a very select group of art quilt professionals who have earned the Silver Star Award presented by Houston Quilt Festival. A prolific author, Katie shares her enthusiasm for the art of creative quilting through her numerous books, her many classes, and now as executive director of Alegre Retreat held at Gateway Canyons Resort in Colorado - a destination resort for quilting enthusiasts and fiber artists.

  • Eloisa

    Inspired by the great outdoors, Eloisa brings together cheerful prints that are created using paper-cut collages giving the designs an adventurous and contemporary look. Lovebirds meet to create the fun geometric Lintu pattern; a design which leads the way for a colourful Scion collection bursting with joy and personality. Accents of deep marine and bold pimento red create impact alongside steel greys and frosty blues, or for a more sophisticated look, Eloisa is transformed into a softer palette featuring a pastel teal, soft mint green and heartwarming blush which mirrors back to Scion’s Scandinavian influence. Eloisa is a playful range of feel-good fabrics that will bring fun to your everyday life!
