    Lets see a show of hands. How many of you enjoy moving a home or a business? Just what I thought only one out of ten. The only thing about moving that I may like is that it forces you to go through years of accumulation and decide what you really really need to keep. How people can downsize to the point where they can move into the tiny houses I see on TV is beyond me.

    Kona Bay Fabrics and Fabric Vine magazine are in the process of moving from Redmond, WA to about three miles away in Sammamish, WA. These days, we only have offices to move as our fabric shipping operation is a joint venture with Clothworks and In the Beginning. Collectively, our fabric is warehoused in Seattle, WA.

    Another possible upside is that Ill start out freshly organized and situated, yet again. Lets see how long that lasts before the hoarding syndrome kicks into play. Im sure I inherited that gene from my dear Mom.

    Kona Bay Fabrics started in 1991 in beautiful scenic Honolulu, Hawaii. By 1992, I realized I couldnt get the UPS trucks to drive across the Pacific Ocean so we moved our warehouse to Las Vegas. In 1994, we moved to the gorgeous Pacific Northwest. It wasnt too long after that our offices and admin people moved to Redmond as well to join our warehouse staff.

    Please know that our phone and fax numbers remain the same as well as our [email protected]

    Our new mailing address is now 4630 E. Lake Sammamish Parkway NE, Sammamish, WA 98074. Please remember, we are a wholesale office and not a retail store.

    After the move is completed, its business as usual where we will continue to develop

    gorgeous fabrics designed to inspire quilters and sewists around the globe. If you havent visited our site recently, stop by www.konabay.com.

    Our latest releases now featured on our web site are:

    Nobu Fujiyamas FUJI MOON (release date is May)

    KOI GATHERING our first ever digital print (release date is April)

    PETALS tonal group (release date is April) BAROQUE tonal group (release date is April)Were proud to offer you a variety of amazing

    projects by our ever talented designer, Georgie Gerl. I have no doubt youll find several to add to your to-do list.

    Thank you very much for your patience while we move and although I was tempted to reach out to everyone for their help in packing and unpacking, I decided to keep you as our friend and supporter instead.

    Mahalo and Aloha! Please enjoy our latest issue of Fabric Vine magazine.
