Doug Leko is coming to Abbi Mays Fabric Shop

Doug Leko, from Antler Quilt Designs and a designer for Moda fabrics is flying in and joining us in our "Quilty Playground"!
We will have him here for a "Meet 'N Greet, "Show 'N Tell", and "Book Signing". What could be better than having our very first world-renowned designer enter our fabric shop to play?
Doug Leko and cake!
No cost, no reservations needed!
Doug Leko’s story is unique in the quilting industry. He founded Antler Quilt Design in 2008, when he was just fourteen. He’d been quilting since the age of six, and working in his mother’s quilt shop over the years helped him develop his skills and refine his art. Doug takes a distinctive approach to his quilt designs. He enjoys incorporating secondary design elements, and he’s absolutely passionate about color. For Doug, there’s nothing like pulling together just the right mix of coordinating fabrics for project. His work has been featured in prominent publications such as McCall’s Quilting, Quiltmaker, and in American Patchwork & Quilting.
Here are some of the things Doug will be bringing along to get signed! He has a brand new book out "Regency Blues", the popular "Stashtastic" (we have a quilt made from this book with kits available on Saturday as well), and his popular Simple Folded Corners Ruler.
