beyond the reef began on the island of Kauai - one rainy morning on a lanai in Hanalei
our first pattern was sold to the Kapaia Stitchery
now our patterns are sold through Brewer, Checker, EE Schenck, Petersen Arne and United Notions
I am a pattern designer...and fabric designer.....I am a designer.
I am here to inspire, to motivate, to create.
I am the shipping department,
the graphics department,
the IT wizard,
the file clerk, the switchboard operator.
I am Natalie Barnes.
...it's a pleasure to meet you!
you might find
beyond the reef
vending at a quilt show
or you might find us
giving a lecture, teaching a class
or attending a wholesale marketing event
like International Quilt Market
a distributor's event!
most days are spent
designing new quilts,
searching out inspiration
for fabric design,
and pattern writing, illustrating and editing.
couldn't be any better!!
