I really can’t share a lot. And you know that it is so hard to keep a secret. And I have been patient since I finished these designs in September. Tap, tap, tap…patiently waiting. So patient. But the wonderful folks at Windham Fabrics said I could show a little, tiny peek…of my new line of fabric. And this is just a peek. And these are just strike-offs. On my bike.
World, say hello to COLLAGE! (Available for stores from Windham March 2013.) I’ll share so much more when I can. It has been a majorly good experience and I love working with all of the kind and talented people at Windham.
It is fascinating to learn about the process of producing fabric. Did you know that the numbered/colored dots on a fabric’s selvage refer to the actual screens used to print the fabric? Each dot corresponds to one screen. This is a very helpful tool for discussing color and reviewing strike-offs.
By the way, guess who else is releasing a line with Windham at the same time? Super-stah fabric designer/illustrator, Heather Ross. Seriously. See a sneak peek here. I kinda hoard her linens. And then there is the hilarious collection from Amy Sedaris (yes, that Amy Sedaris) called, I Like You. Fabric has never made me do a spit-take before. If you haven’t seen the youtube videos for her book, Simple Times: Crafts for Poor People, you should probably go do that now. Right here. Hot dogs on a rake. And then Lotta Jansdotter is sharing her new loveliness, Glimma. Pretty awesome, this crowd of people. I don’t know. Just typing all that made me feel nervous…
So much more to say. But we will wait, won’t we? Tap, tap….
