Jonathan Adler for Kravet

  We have a Jonathan Adler store in Austin and it’s got to be one of the happiest places on earth. Except for sad old me bringing things down because I can’t afford anything. I drive past the window every morning and the “Your 24-Hour Pot Dealer” slogan under the URL always makes the subconscious [...]

Borderline Fabrics is a London textile company producing “an eclectic collection of prints and weaves from 1730 to the present day for the upholstery and curtain trade.” This beautiful design from the 1930s by E.Q. Nicholson is called Black Goose, and it is available in blue and brown colorways on 100% linen. The U.S. distributor is Lucy [...]

Echino Jacquards

At Fall Quilt Market as everyone exchanged hot tips on things to see, there was lots of excited whispering, “Echino jaquards! Echino jacquards! Echino! Jaquards!” They are finally arriving in U.S. stores for all your upholstery and other heavyweight woven needs. Can you imagine an entire Echino sofa? Thanks to The Stitch Lab in Austin [...]

Celia Birtwell

{ Beasties } Iconic British textile designer Celia Birtwell has a new collaboration with Uniqlo, so you can own and wear some of her classic prints at a great value. For the occasion I thought I’d share some of the fabrics available from her website. They are hand-screenprinted onto heavyweight linen (some on cotton). It’s [...]

Skinny LaMinx: Rough Cuts

Skinny LaMinx has a new collection out called Rough Cuts. The designs are all based on papercuts and are “inspired by Scandinavian style, but perfectly at home in Africa.” You can get fabrics by the meter and finished goods through Etsy, through these stockists, or if you’re in South Africa, through the web shop or [...]

Sister Parish

Sister Parish was a interior designer and socialite famous in the 60s and on for her work on the Kennedy White House and for her take on the English country house look. I’m deducing that she was at least partially responsible for the quilt revival of the 70s. Today, her granddaughter Susan Bartlett Crater, and Parish’s onetime apprentice Libby Cameron, [...]

Visit Your Local Quilt Shop Day!

The True Up household has been visited by various virii and allergies and mixtures of both this week, so I wasn’t able to participate in Local Quilt Shop Day to the extent that I’d hoped (or anything else, for that matter), but, even though it’s past closing time already, I couldn’t let the day pass [...]
