European Linen

I have so much to share with you this week including images from my recent screen-printing workshop, my lovely vintage weekend finds, new fabric prints and other inspiring classes that you may like to take.

I will kick start the week by sharing these beautiful European natural linens with you. I'm always on the look-out for new sustainable fabrics that are suitable for screen-printing and it has taken me 3 years to find these perfect linens at a reasonable price.

These high-quality linens are accredited by MoL (Masters of Linen) part of a European regulatory body that assures quality control.

The Provincial Linen is going to be the basis of my new line of French-inspired housewares due to be released at the beginning of February. This natural flax fabric will be one of the fabrics featuring our new Cottage Garden designs but will be exclusively used for Thea & Sami homewares.

Gorgeous for rustic-inspired embroidery and other projects, you can purchase the plain fabric from here.

For a totally different look and feel, the Petersburg Linen is a lovely blend of white and natural woven yarns. I will be offering it as a basecloth to screen-print our designs for interior design. You can purchase it unprinted here.

And as an added bonus, both of these fabrics are pre-shrunk or sanforized and are a generous 150 cm (59") in width. For more information about linen, you may be interested in reading one of my earlier posts, Why I love linen.

As always, Thea & Sami on-line shopping includes free shipping within Australia (but not for wholesale orders).

Thanks for the workshop on Saturday Thea! I really enjoyed it and I LOVE my tea towel. Can't wait to buy the rest of my supplies so I can keep on printing.
