100% Organic Cotton Fabrics
For home sewers, businesses, retailers, and anyone who gives a scrap!
One of my favorite things in the whole wide world is co-creating. It is something I used to do almost every day in my former design jobs working on projects for big box companies. Once I branched out on my own, the opportunity to co-create took on a new form - one based more on business development and less about design work.
Last year was a year of personal challenges (maybe more about that another time). When you are forced to deal with serious stuff, you end up re-evaluating your life and where you spend your energy. One of the takeaways for me has been that I really want to do more artistic co-creating. To that end, I am working on a couple of custom runs.
The design above, "Uncertainty", is inspired by the artwork of Suzan Friedland. We will be printing it in 3 different scales on natural organic cotton sateen. One yard per scale and then it will repeat again (see mini version below).
Suzan is having a retrospect of her work at Bay Quilts in Richmond, CA in October. We expect to have the continuous yardage printed and for sale at that event (if not before). If you live in the SF Bay Area - mark your calendar for October 7th and meet us at Bay Quilts.
I have one more co-creating project in the works right now and several ideas percolating. If you would like to propose a project with me, just shoot me an email - let's talk!
When I was considering the idea of creating an organic cotton fabric line, the first place I contacted was Organic Cotton Plus. That was back in 2004! I can vividly remember speaking with Barbara Bush (not the first lady) about the concept and asking her if I created a line, would they sell the fabric for me. Her response was so enthusiastic that it played a critical part in building the confidence I needed to take the leap of faith. Now, well over a decade later, Organic Cotton Plus continues to sell and support the Harmony Art line of organic cotton fabrics. Both of our companies have changed and morphed over time but I am happy to say the relationship is still one of admiration and gratitude.
This month in honor of our longevity with each other, Organic Cotton Plus is having a sale on Harmony Art organic fabrics. Sew Happy!
Additionally, Organic Cotton Plus also has an interview with me posted on their blog.
