I live in California. My shop is located in Oakland. I am inspired by the ocean and all it has to give; the textures, the color, and its complete largesse. This environment informs so much of what I make.
One day, I went to India. I studied the applique work created by the Rabari, a group of semi-nomadic herders. Inspired by them and this region, I began to practice natural dyeing.
I returned to the U.S. and created a natural dye studio. The studio grew more and more until I created a much larger studio, shop, and classroom.
Building a new shop allowed me to carry something I have loved my entire life - FABRIC. I adore bright, graphic prints in cotton and cotton / linen blends.
Today, we have 5 for 5.
5 bundles of 5 fat quarters for 5 people.
Guess what comes this week? New Nani-Iro fabric from Japan. Guess what you get if you win the giveaway? Nani-Iro fabric. Plus, other new and sweet fabric from many other great companies and designers.
To win, tell me where you go when you want to feel inspired.
