Want to learn more about the home decor industry and develop a stunning collection of patterns? Join us for the Sellable Sketch Home Group-Study starting Monday, April 23rd!

In the Sellable Sketch Home Group-Study we work through our standard Sellable Sketch course, but you also receive bonus emails which are focused on the home decor industry. You’ll also receive free access to WGSN Home for the five week duration of the course.

This event is FREE for all Textile Design Lab members and members can register here.





New to the Lab: Open Office Hours

You might have noticed that the Lab is a buzz with activity right now! With our Surtex briefs ramping up, and more opportunities on the way I will be holding open “Office Hours” for the next few weeks. These office hours will take place every Tuesday at a different time. I hope that the time variations will allow those of you in different time zones to participate.

Bring whatever questions, projects, pattern or sketches that you need help with. I’ll be hanging out in my Zoom room during these office hours, happy to help you in whatever way you need. I am leaving the schedule open right now, so when you enter the Zoom room you might be the only one present at that particular moment, or there might be a large group – we’ll see!

The Zoom link and scheduled Office Hour times can be under “Upcoming Events” on your Member Dashboard. I’ll also be sending out this information through email and Facebook Messenger.

This week’s Open Office is Tuesday, April 24th at 12pm EDT. Grab the link here.





Design Opportunity with Pattern Observer Studio – Holiday Patterns for SURTEX!

We are so pleased to announce that Chelsea and I will be attending SURTEX for the first time this coming May, and we’ll be bringing a select amount of Textile Design Lab member artwork along with us!

This is going to be an exceptional experience, as we will be able to present some of our members’ artwork to the buyers and licensees attending the show and also have the opportunity to meet so many people within the community which we hope will lead to future opportunities for our members as well.

You can read more about our new brief here.
