Fabric Land

May 27, 2016

This morning, my friend and fellow textile fanatic, Alison and I went to the Textile Museum‘s annual summer sale to rummage through bolts, boxes and bins of fabric. “Are you looking for something in particular?” asked her friend Dori as we stood in line outside Artscape. “No, but I’ll know when I see it!” I couldn’t resist a bolt of coral fabric covered in tropical birds and flowers, and at $2 a piece, the Navajo inspired cushion fabrics in pinks and blues had to be mine. My favourite find was metres of heavy white satin decorated with butterflies, ladybirds and bumbles bees, perfect for dresses for the girls or a ballgown for me! Alison snapped up a few metres of pale blue toile, and a gorgeous print of aqua florals for her home in Nova Scotia. All so beautiful, and so much fun. Next year, I’ll bring a bigger bag.
