Fabrics

One thing I love to do is to make piles of fabrics. I love the way they look together all piled up. This week I had to take some photos for an upcoming article in the new magazine 'Sew'. Here are those plus a few more that I found in my archives. Delicious!

What fun, all that folding - and such an important job that takes precedence over all others!

fabulous, fantastic, flowery, flirtatious fibre folding!

Oh scrummy! And all so beautifully pressed and neat! I always tell myself that the reason my piles never quite look this neat is because of all the awkward to fold shapes of vintage and recycled fabric - now you have put me to shame! t.x

So pretty - I love them all! This would make a fabulous postcard, ooooooo, no wait - wallpaper!! How glorious a whole wall of this would be. Katie x

I'm so glad I have found someone else who enjoys the sheer beauty of neat piles of fabric. I have just found your link through Bobo Bun where I recently left a comment about the glass fronted cabinets we used to buy our pink socks from. It's so lovely to see similar cabinets on your shop photos. I remember peering through the glass at those special socks, everything was very calm and orderly. It's nice to see them again.

Fabrics are so hard to resist I think I actually like looking through them more than I like making things with the stuff.

A life without fabric would be a sad one, wouldn't it Donna? I couldn't imagine not having pretty fabrics to drool over, to stroke now and then, and to take photos of! A simple pleasure, but us fabricaholics are easily pleased, are we not?!...I'm off to study each tiny glimpse of all yours in the photos now...
Have a happy week,

Hi,

I wanted to write and tell you about a new website for fashion designers, artists, musicians, and filmmakers: www.PutItOn.com. I've been using the site as an artist and have my work there, and am trying to support. Basically, the site allows artists from all over the world to connect, display their portfolios, and sell their work (with no commission taken). The site gives artists a free gigabyte of space to showcase their portfolios, allows you to stream audio and video works, lets you create live personal broadcasts, and translates any writing into ten different languages. If you could take the time to visit the site, and if you like it too, let your readers know about it, and even sign up yourself or link to it on your site it would be greatly appreciated! We are trying to make a go of helping out artists everywhere and are trying to get the word out, so please help us out if you like the site after checking it out! 

Thank you!
