ODIF USA was again at Houston Quilt Market this year,  Our 18th year as an exhibitor. The weather was wonderful and there were lots of interesting things going on.  Our new product Odicoat was a big draw. There was lots of interest and fun projects.

Our booth had a new look, a new product Odicoat and a new demonstrator.

Everyone loved the new product Odicoat…Odicoat is a clear product that is brushed on. When it drys it creates a oil cloth feel and makes fabric water resistant.  You can create a mat finish (1 coat) or glossy finish (2 or more coats). It is great for table runners, umbrellas, purses and tote bags.  Instructions for using Odicoat are: apply a thin coating with a brush, let dry and if you want a denser coating apply a second and or third layer. Odicoat is a wonderful product for Art quilters who want to add texture and a mat or gloss finish. The more layers you apply the glossier the finish becomes. When finished applying your layers heat set with an iron using parchment paper for a mat finish and a Teflon pressing cloth for a glossier finish. The result is lovely.

Keep following our blog for more projects and information as to its national release.

Best regards,
