Friday Fabric Stories

I have to start sharing the things I’m discovering on the internet.  This is something I use to do with the Midsouth Knitting Guild newsletter.   But now I get to share more than just knitting stuff.

This week’s blogs about fabric….

Alabama Chanin

Marcy Tilton
MarcyTiltonLogoUntil this year, she was just a name with a funky logo and funky designs in the Vogue Patterns catalog.  I never thought of her as a real person.  Wrong again.  This year, I found her blog and have been following her trips to Paris, sewing projects….she has a fabric barn!

 

This Is Colossal
Woolnough's Ginko LeafThis Is Colossal is an amazing website with every kind of art work imaginable.  My current favorite fiber artist is Meredith Woolnough.  I’m a sucker for ginkyo leaves and nautilus shells.
