Island Batik Ambassador 2019 Unboxing

As I have mentioned previously,  I applied to be an Island Batik Ambassador for 2019 and was accepted to the program.

Island Batik is "The best from Bali."  The fabric is outstanding. In a few days I will be showing you my first project as an ambassador.

Full Disclosure:  Island Batik along with partners, Hobbs Batting, Aurifil Thread and Accuquilt have provided the items I received free of charge as an Ambassador. 

I will also say that I have purchased and used products from all of these companies prior to becoming an Island Batik Ambassador. 

So now, enjoy watching as I unbox the lovely items I received from  these sponsors.

I also have some nice still photos of my amazing "haul."
The table is FULL of happy possibilities. 
Bright Colors and more

Go! Cutter, Go! Qube, Island Batik Fabric, Aurifil Thread.

Another view of the fabrics and that lovely Hobbs Batting

Surprise!  The contents of this package
 will be part of my August Blog Hop post. 

Neutrals in Gray/Black/White and more.
Look at the lovely red rayon scarf. 

Batting Galore from Hobbs Batting. 

This year should be a time of productivity and growth for me as a quilter. I hope you will come along for the ride.

What a fun package with all those bright fabrics and things. I wanted to apply this year, but I knew I would't have the time. Maybe by next year. Have fun creating!

Katrina said...

Congratulations Gene! Well deserved and I look forward to your posts!

Thanks for sharing. The video was a nice touch. You will love the silk batting. It can be quilted heavily and still drape. Look forward to seeing your projects as always.

Congratulations again on becoming an Island Batik Ambassador and the wonderful goodies the sponsors sent to you. Your excitement is contagious, Gene. I look forward to seeing all you create this year. Knowing you, that brain is already in over-drive with ideas. (Hi to the camera man, too!)

Hi Gene....I know you only as someone who comments on Wanda's website, but I wanted to congratulate you on becoming an Island Batik ambassador, and, of course will subscribe to your blog so I can see all the beautiful projects you are creating. That is quite an honor, and you must be very happy that you were chosen. Of course, getting those boxes full of goodies isn't too shabby either. lol Have fun!!!
