Print Show Recap with Michelle and Chelsea

Last month, Chelsea and I had the exciting experience of exhibiting for the first time at Surtex at the Javits Center in New York City, and then at Inception in High Point, North Carolina.

In this live chat we will walk you through our preparations for the shows, an overview of our budget and what we will do differently next time. There will also be plenty of time for questions.

June Design Challenge: Land, Air and Sea

I am so excited for this month’s challenge!! When Chelsea and I were at Surtex last month we spoke to a number of brands from markets as varied as accessories, bedding, women’s apparel, quilting fabric, and classroom decor, all of whom were interested in seeing conversational patterns. Animal patterns were a particular standout in terms of what people were looking for, so we thought it would be great to capitalize on that for this month’s Chelsea’s Challenge and encourage Lab members to develop a collection based around animals, birds, or sea creatures.

You can read the full design challenge here.
