While scrolling thought the images on my computer lately, I came across this picture I had saved earlier. It reminded me of the road I have traveled while bringing my first fabric collection, “Enchanted Damask” & my new second fabric collection ”Flight Pattern” to life! The bulk of “Flight Pattern” fabric is now only a few days from port! Yippeee!
In the above photo, my mill is communicating how my 3 colorways will appear, as well as confirming my preferred placement of the design on the 44″ width. I believe this was the second strike-off. (Note that they are NOT telling me that my colors will phase from one to the other, as I of course had to confirm! LOL!)
An endeavor of this scale might be considered foolhardy for myself as the fabrics artist, and my little company as the producer/importer. However, the learning opportunities and rewards I hope will always out weigh this risk! To be totally clear, no other fabric company is “doing this for me”.
So Please SHOP INDIE DESIGNERS when you have the opportunity, wholesale or retail! This vote of confidence makes a big difference to we foolhardy fabric crazed insane souls!
