We are so excited to announce the Island Batik Brand Ambassadors and Industry Partners for 2019!
Before we meet the new Ambassadors, we want to thank all of the 2018 Ambassadors for an incredible year of meeting the monthly challenges for a different project each month. They not only met those challenges, but created works of art that will not soon be forgotten.
The Island Batik Brand Ambassador Program is starting its 4th year! When the call went out for 2019 Ambassadors, we were overwhelmed with all of the wonderful applications we received. It was not easy to keep it to 50! After making the final list and checking it twice, we had our group!
Say hello to our 2019 Island Batik Brand Ambassadors! This group of 50 talented creatives will bring you inspiration, tutorials, and humor. They are a great community that also offer Block of the Month programs, new patterns and service projects for you!From left to right:

Each of our Brand Ambassadors receives two boxes a year filled with everything they need to meet all of the challenges and sometimes have some left over for other projects. Our team hand selects what each Ambassador receives in their boxes. We also have very generous industry partners that supply batting and thread. This year we have a new partner to bump the creativity factor up a notch!
Our partners this year are Aurifil, Hobbs Batting and AccuQuilt for partnering with us for this fun year! We appreciate them so very much!
Aurifil is the top choice for quilters! The 50wt thread provides strength to seams and melts into quilting with less lint to keep your sewing machine happier! Happy sewing machine means a happier quilter!
Hobbs Quilt Batting offers the best in batting from cotton to polyester; they have it all!
Accuquilt Ready Set GO! has everything quilters need to make cutting simpler! To see this collection, please watch the AccuQuilt Ready. Set. GO! Ultimate Fabric Cutting System video.
The Ambassadors will be posting their unboxing images and videos, sharing what they received. Be sure to visit their blogs to see what is inside!
