Her channel, TheCraftyGemini, has over 310,000 subscribers and her tutorials have been viewed 30 million times worldwide.

A law professor turned entrepreneur, Vanessa now shares her lifestyle and crafty skills with a global audience via the web.

Vanessa was inspired by her heritage and childhood summers with family to create her collection, Dominicana! Celebrate the mountain towns, flower festivals and colorful houses of the Dominican Republic with these 21 fabrics featuring modern brights, fresh florals and versatile blenders. Mix and match for quilts and handbags that pop, or choose one focus print for apparel and home décor.


Dominicana features a vibrant tropical palette: pastel yellow, airy aqua and bright red. A medley of florals, cute guava and plantain motifs, colorful homes and confetti make for a fun and cheery collection. And just wait until you see the cute selvages on this collection!



Dominicana will be available for wholesale pre-order in October. Fabric begins shipping November 2016.

There are a lot of exciting Dominicana projects on the way and we can’t wait to share them with you later this fall!

    It kind of has a 50’s feel to it, I love it. I’ll have to keep my eye on it. Looks like some great fabrics for our bag of the month club. Looking forward to seeing your projects relating to these fabrics. Congratulations Vanessa! Fabric line is awesome.

    I joined Vanessa’s Crafty Gemini Quilt Club when she first started it and met her in person for the first time at one of her retreats in Florida. Vanessa is the real deal! She is so smart, creative and humble. Besides being a wonderful teacher and crafter, she is devoted to her family and their farm life, raising vegetables, goats and her own two beautiful children. I am so excited and thrilled about Vanessa’s Dominicana fabric line. I can’t wait to order some!

    I am waiting for your new fabric “Dominicana” to come out so that I can purchase it. What quilt pattern do you recommend for this fabric or are you working on a pattern for this line? Thank you.
