After we have sold things, we have to pull all the little tags off of each piece. We work hard to make sure our inventory is correct!

About

The truth is always stranger than fiction... Have I got a colorful story for you!

In 1986, Stacy Michell started a business venture called “Shades Textiles”. After visiting several large quilt shows, she was inspired to explore the options of hand dyed textiles in the quilting marketplace. With in her first couple of years in business Stacy started exhibiting at as many as 18 quilt shows a year from smaller local events to some of the bigger venues like The American Quilter’s Society Quilt Show in Kentucky or Quilt Market & Quilt Festival in Houston.

In 1998, she made her first of many trips to Tokyo, and she can be seen at the Tokyo Dome international Quilt Festival every year. About this time in her career, her quilting style started to change from patchwork to appliqué as the studio developed a line of kits known as "Shades of Baltimore". Next Stacy took on the challenge of the Hawaiian Quilt. Part of her interest in the Hawaiian Quilt was to develop machine appliqué techniques for this style of quilt traditionally created by hand. Shades Textiles introduced the "All-Around Appliqué Patterns", over 100 block designs with diverse themes from cats & dogs to Christmas trees and Jack ‘O Lanterns or sports like surfing or golf, all folded and cut like cutting a paper snow flake.

All of the creative energy flowing around her studio with the addition of the appliqué patterns helped create new dyed fabric techniques known as “The Hand Dyed Hula Hoop”. If you ever see Stacy in person, she will be happy to describe this technique in Hula! Then, she could teach you how to cut Hawaiian appliqué blocks so carefully you get 2 appliqués from 1 piece of cloth!

If your hand is not so steady, or you just want a great fast project, this kind of appliqué is available pre-cut, in her product line known as “2 for 1 Hawaiian Appliqué”. Of course, all of the appliqué she creates uses her super soft paperbacked fusible web “Shades SoftFuse”, available in small packages, and larger rolls.

Currently, Stacy, and her husband Alex Bogdan, are living in Marietta, Georgia, a suburb of Atlanta. Shades Textiles Studio occupies a 7000 square foot space. With a staff of about 3 people and currently 1 studio dog, Frannie, and a little grey cat, Shades Studio is a busy and colorful place to be.
