Take a trip to Paris...

Continuing our Quilt Market booth tour:
Our Contempo Studio booth has a Parisian dress shop feel, showcasing the soon-to-be-released Vintage Scrapbook collection by Michele D'Amore. Dress forms, window frames, cafe tables and the Eiffel tower in the's so inviting that you're tempted to pull up a chair and order a croissant (chocolate, please!) and cafe au lait! 

Dresses with a vintage feel sporting classic polka dots and French motifs from the collection. The patterns came from some actual vintage patterns that Melanie Greseth and Joanie Holton of TailorMade by Design found in their mother's stash. The patterns range from the 1940's -1950's and are from companies like McCall's, Butterick and Advanced. Just look at these beautiful dresses!

Stepping back: a look at the entire booth. 
Doesn't it make you want to book a trip to Paris?

Even Benny loved the Contempo Studio booth! Do you see him here?

The art on the back walls was handpainted by Melanie Greseth. The inspiration behind this backdrop came from the fabric. It lent itself so easily to a Parisian cityscape, that Melanie knew that the booth needed to have it.

Who wants to try on the dress in the window?

Come on in and take a seat with our chic polka dots galore and a chair upholstered in sewing shop toile.

Table for four with a Vintage Scrapbook runner: Cafe au lait, s'il vous plait!
Ahh...C'est la vie!
