Nearly ready for Surtex...and look at this adorable diaper bag!

Sorry for the repost. Updating with watermarked diaper bag photos.

Surtex, the big surface and textile design licensing show in NYC starts in just over 2 weeks. And this year, there's no last minute scrambling! My boxes with my signs, samples and printed materials are all taped up and ready to be shipped this week. All that's left to do is to do some portfolio organizing and then it's off to New York for the show 5/15-5/17. I'm beyond excited!

Last year was my first time exhibiting and it was a great show. I made some wonderful contacts and my work was licensed by a few great manufacturers. And I'm really feeling great about showing again this year. Loads and loads of new designs to show and I'm really excited to meet with manufacturers again. Hoping to realize my dream of having my designs on home decor, tabletop goods (dishes!!), wallpaper and baby accessories. So keep your fingers crossed for me! I'll be posting if I can and will be loading pictures on my Facebook page.

Part of getting ready for the show this year included having a few samples made from my fabric to show off how my designs could look in sewn goods. So my pal Cressie over at Sew Envious Designs graciously created an AWESOME diaper bag for me. It's got a bazillion pockets and straps and the cutest little key fob from my selvage. I just adore it. She'll gladly sew you one up from any fabric you'd like. When you visit her, make sure you tell her I sent you :) Thanks so much Cressie!
