day 2—spring quilt market

Today I collected feedback on Patomi’s three fabric collections. Between informal focus groups at the espresso stand and talking with manufacturers on the show floor, I’ve received honest and thoughtful insights.

Younger retailers, especially online ones, liked the non-matching Origamee Collection. Established store owners preferred the Edo Rising Collection, especially the Sumi colorway in charcoal and citron yellow.

you should put together some graphs or pie charts of your feedback, or pictures of patterns and the corresponding feedback -- would love some details

Thanks for thinking of that. I did take notes and am using the opinions to align our thinking for our next two collections.
