I’ve diversified a little into fabric selling… there are a couple of reasons for this. For a while I have struggled with the conflict of having to make things for customer requests whilst wanting to work on my own ideas – I am hoping that fabric selling will allow me to turn down a few commissions! The other big reason is that Sandy and I are applying to become foster parents. It’s going to take a while, and may not work out, but in the mean time I need to earn money in a way that needs a bit less intense concentration, so that I have a bit of headspace to think about it all.
I am going to concentrate on selling all kinds of bundles of Liberty of London prints for patchworkers and other sewers who don’t want huge amounts of expensive yardage. I am looking forward to buying lots of beautiful prints for you all to drool over, and hopefully buy! I have lots of plans for my little shop, but to get things started, I have been selling on The Fabric Marketplace, and promoting on Facebook.
Thanks so much to everyone who has ticked that like button on Facebook. I promised a giveaway when I reached 100 likers, so here we are!
- I have 2 packs of twenty 5″ squares of a selection of Liberty Tana Lawn prints (see above!) to give away to two lucky winners.
- I am happy to send anywhere in the world, so feel free to enter wherever you are.
- All you need to do is leave a comment on this blog before midnight on Thurs 28 June, telling me what you like about Liberty prints.
Here’s the sort of loveliness you can make with these gorgeous fabrics – in a picture taken on a much brighter day!
or how about browsing this wonderful Flickr group of Liberty Scrap Challenge pics – gorgeous stuff.
In the mean time, if you just can’t wait, I have similar bundles of 5″ squares in my shop right now.
