Guest Expert Speaker: Ronnie Walter
This month we have the privilege to welcome Ronnie Walter to the Textile Design Lab as our guest expert.
In addition to being a talented artist, Ronnie is also a business coach for creatives and helps artists find their way to success. On Tuesday, June 26th, Ronnie will share with our Lab members how narrowing your focus can actually bring you greater (and hopefully faster) success.
Part II: 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 Part II of this live chat we will walk you through our preparations for Inception, an overview of our budget and what we will do differently next time. There will also be plenty of time for questions. Part I is posted here.

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.
