Still in hibernation...
but checking out fabric for my spring line.
Thanks to Pigtown Design for writing about all the treasures at
Debois Textiles in Baltimore.
The Ralph Lauren fabric above is one of Meg's finds at Debois.
This fabric might be just right for the mrr design spring 2010 line,
but then so is the beauty below that I discovered earlier today
via Little Augury.
This is part of collection that will be available later this winter
as part of a joint venture between the V & A and Liberty.
This lovely print, called Seaweed, was inspired by the V&A archives,
and will be produced in a limited edition
in conjunction with the
Quilt exhibit at the V & A.
Then I remembered the new Sister Parish Designs fabric.
The blue print has been on my short list for a few months.
Notice the similarity between the fabrics.
Blue frames are the most popular in my line year after year.
I keep a good record of what sells and what doesn't.
Usually the fabrics I select are just right,
but occasionally I choose some duds.
Don't get me wrong, the duds are wonderful fabric,
but sometimes the prints or colors do not work
on frames or boards.
I have yards and yards of unused fabric.
Due in part, to my fabric fetish,
and due to the nature of the business -
not all fabrics will sell.
Periodically I donate fabric remnants to the local turn-over shop,
but this spring I might do a big clean-out...
So I am thinking of having a tag sale.
This could be a huge undertaking...time will tell.
