I am often asked for fabric loans by magazines and I am always happy to accomodate these requests when I can.
Recently, I was asked by BBC Homes and Antiques to supply rare and named pieces of 1950's fabrics for a photo shoot so I delved into my most precious collections to find my Marian Mahler, Lucienne Day, Barbara Brown and any David Whitehead fabrics I could. These pieces are very special to me so with some trepidation (and a lot of reassurance from H&A) I sent them off. I had no need to worry, they were sent back in perfect condition and very quickly and the resulting photo shoot is in this month's edition. It's mouthwateringly delicious. Lovely to see other collector's pieces too.
Also out this month is an article I did for Sew Hip, together with more pictures of yummy fabrics.
