Even Better In Person
There’s been a ton written recently about Heather Ross and her imminent hiatus from the fabric design world–read all about it here.
Her last collection, Far Far Away for Kokka
, is due out any minute now. I’ve just received swatches from the US distributor, and I gotta say, folks: WOW. This stuff
is all kinds of great. When word got out about the non-compete agreement and it became clear that Heather would need to take a break from fabric design, Kokka opted to pull the cotton sheeting printing of these fabrics and is producing them only in double-gauze. It is TO DIE FOR, for reals.
I’ve already placed an order, and am giddy with anticipation for its arrival in the shop, and I’ve come up with a brilliant GIVEAWAY IDEA: I’m inviting Whipstitch readers to offer yummy giveaway ideas in the comments section–if I choose your suggestion, YOU’LL get one of the prizes in addition to the giveaway winner! Consider it a little compensation for sharing your intellectual powers with Whipstitch.
Look for the giveaway and the fabric sometime this summer.
