In Good Company

The December issue of Down Under Quilts features 20 Australian designers of contemporary fabrics and I feel honoured to have been included along with the likes of Ink & Spindle and Kristen Doran.

You can view the current issue on-line by visiting the website. Subscribe to the newsletter for free access to the on-line version of the magazine for 6 months.

I was delighted to see the work of other blogging friends in this issue too, such as these lovely selvedge shopping sacks by Linda Robertus. The story includes the tutorial for these. Photo is courtesy of Linda and you can can visit her blog here.

Many of you will have seen the famous selvedge chair from Jodie Carlton that did the round at the Australian Stitches and Craft Shows this year. Photo is courtesy of Jodie and you can visit her blog Ric Rac.

The most exciting news is that a class mate of long ago found me again thanks to the Down Under Quilts article. So yes, if you went to Dubbo High School, that is me. Here's a big, special hello to Amanda Colwell (nee Fuller) who is an avid quilter.

Now, I have to start designing new fabrics for 2010 over the next few weeks and more homewares.

Hi Thea
Thanks for your comment - it's lovely to come across your blog! I am always happy to read about creative textile endeavours, especially from Australia.

Tania said...

Yay for you, Thea! Now just promise you squeeze at least a paltry few days of R&R somewhere amidst those few weeks!

I didn't know you were from Dubbo - me too! It is a very small world!

Thea said...

No way! I knew that more would confess once I did, lol.

Kate said...

Hooray for you Ms T and S! It is wonderful that you are getting recognition for something you are so passionate about.

Congratulations. I get the online edition but haven't had time to read it yet. Will have to make it a priority now.
