E-Book: How to Enter The World of Textile Design, by Lizzy House

Lizzy House, designer of adorable fabric lines Lizzy Dish, Red Letter Day, and the upcoming Castle Peeps (all for Andover Fabrics), recently spilled about a book she’s written (well, an e-book, but a book’s a book in my book) called How To Enter The World Of Textile Design: For The Quilting Industry.

Since I started designing fabric, my inbox has been filled to the brim with questions from peeps who too want to design. It’s difficult to respond to every email, and difficult to respond in a way that is actually helpful, and not continually allusive. My thinking for the book was this: there are books that tell you how to get published, there are books that tell you how to get your work into galleries, there are books for everything under the sun; why shouldn’t there be a book for this tiny specific specialized market, that seems so hard to break into.

The book is available for purchase and download here for $25. There’s even a foreword by Amy Schimler of Redfishcircle. Should be a very interesting read for aspiring fabric designers.
