Previously known as the Firesky Resort & Spa, the hotel is now The Scott Resort & Spa owned by Classic Hotels & Resorts, who acquired if from Kimpton hotels in April 2016. Originally established in 1961 as the Executive House Arizonian, the Scott started it's latest renovation in May of 2017. All common areas (lobby, pool, restaurant, meeting spaces) have been finished with a modern/classic Arizona look, and Quiltcraft, partnering with Canoe Hospitality, had the opportunity to be a part of the process by manufacturing pillows, and window treatments which are displayed throughout the property. Guestroom renovations are underway, but take a look at the common areas!

PILLOW FULLNESS IS IMPORTANT. HOW DO I ASSURE MY PILLOWS ARE ADEQUATELY FILLED?

PILLOW FULLNESS IS IMPORTANT. HOW DO I ASSURE MY PILLOWS ARE ADEQUATELY FILLED?

We recently had a customer come to us, concerned that the pillows we made were not up to standard. The customer wanted the pillows to be ‘fuller’, ‘fluffier’, and to keep their shape better. The initial reaction, which is completely logical, was to have the pillows overstuffed, to put more fill in them. The truth though, is this isn’t a question of putting more fill into a pillow  it is a discussion of the type of fill to put into a pillow. This is a common misunderstanding between manufacturers, designers, purchasing agents and more. Therefore we thought we would try to shed a bit of light on this ‘fill’ issue for the benefit of us all.
