At long last I can share my BIG, BIG, BIG news!!! I've been absolutely on pins and needles and can finally tell you about the SUPER exciting stuff that's been going on here. Drum roll please....
Some of my designs have been licensed by Kaufman Fabrics and my very first collection for them will be making it's debut in Spring 2010.
Wahooo!!! Wahooo!!! Wahooo!!! Can you believe it?!? Bolts and bolts and bolts of my fabric rolling off the presses next year! :) I am so incredibly excited and proud. And even though I've known for a few months, I'm frankly still a bit in shock. Starting in April 2010, retailers can start placing their orders and the fabric will hopefully be in stores soon after that! I'm pretty sure will totally dork out and shed a few tears the first time I walk into a fabric shop and see bolts of my designs on the shelves.
As soon as the design selection process is finalized with Kaufman, I can let you know exactly which specific patterns will be part of the Spring collection. AND I'm finalizing the colors on some NEW FUN fabrics that I'll be adding to the Etsy store very soon.
Wow... I can hardly believe it's been only a year since I first put my first fabric designs up for sale on Etsy. 11/6/08 was the day I put my fabric up for sale. And here I am a year later and my dreams of becoming a licenced fabric designer are coming true. When I left the corporate world I wasn't sure I could make this happen but lookie at what I did!!
So in celebration of my extreme good fortune, I'd love to give away a yard of fabric (in any one of my patterns) to someone! Just leave me a comment (make sure there is a way to contact you) and tell me what YOUR big dream is. What's the thing you stay awake at night dreaming about? :) I'll pick a winner by random on 11/18 and I can't wait to hear from you.
Thanks for all your support and encouragement over the last year!
