The Big News!

Tuesday, August 21, 2012

Are you ready!?
Today I am very excited to announce, that I will be designing fabric for Art Gallery Fabrics! I have a mini collection that will be coming out this Fall, called Color Me Retro! You all know how much I love, love, love their fabrics, so it's really a dream come true!

Make sure and join us for two Twitter chats today! We'll be chatting about all things fabric, sewing, and blogging! Follow hashtag #talknt2 for our first chat from 1-3pm EST and #talknt for our second chat from 9-11pm EST! (I use Tweetchat.com to easily follow along and participate!)

You can see all the prints on the Art Gallery Fabrics website, here.  It will be in stores in February-March 2013!

I hope you like it! I've started a Color Me Retro Pinterest Board to share a bit of my inspiration for the line with you! :)

  159. Oh how exciting Jeni! HUGE CONGRATULATIONS! I really do love the preview of your fabric designs and can't wait to see them in my own sewing room. I'm not entirely sure about this 'mid-century modern' thing though given you're dating the 'feel' of your design during my childhood years. I know I felt old a lot of times, but mid-century makes me feel ancient. LOL
