So I have a funny (longish) story to tell....last month Fabric.com asked me to be their spotlighted designer for the month of May—cue major excitement and nervousness. This is only my first fabric collection! I didn’t feel like a professional and such an imposter. I didn't even have any recent professional photos and they wanted not only one, but two head shots! In a few short days I sewed, planned, shopped and put together an entire photo shoot with much needed help from my friends Michelle and Darice. Along with photos I had to answer a series of interview questions.
Just when I was feeling like I was on top of it all and sounding pretty legit, I took a break from writing my interview answers to check my Instagram feed. The question I had literally just finished asked me about my design heroes. Of course Sarah Jane Studios was at the top of my list--her work is amazing and I’ve loved it forever. Anyways, I answer that question, open Instagram, and the very first post that pops up in my feed is Sarah Jane.......as the Fabric.com spotlighted designer for the month of April! Ahhh! I was going to follow Sarah, one of my design heroes! AHHHHHHH!
It is such an honor to be spotlighted among such amazing artists. A huge thank you to Fabric.com for the opportunity and to Riley Blake Designs for making this whole experience possible. And to all of you for supporting and encouraging me every step of the way! ⠀
