They're here! The very first strike offs of my very first fabric line. I am so excited, I can't stand it! And, a month ago, I didn't even know what a strike off was. I love learning though. And, I'll probably get this wrong, but it has something to do with the first run, or the first print of your fabric designs. I'd really like to see it in action to fully understand how they take my idea and make fabric out of it. What to see some? Clothworks has posted my new line on their website (follow the link "meet the designers"), and the photos of the strike offs are on their blog.
You know how a new mom checks out her baby, counting the fingers and toes? That's what I was doing after the package arrived. I ripped it open, then lovingly searched through the entire contents laying each piece out on my bed, arranging the patterns together, rearranging different colors, then rearranging again. Oh yeah, let's not forget, checking my name on the selvage! It's all good!
