Oh, it’s just so sad. In the week since I discovered DeBois Textiles, I’ve been over there five times! Every time I visit, I find more and more new and spectacular textiles. I’ve always loved fabrics, but now I’ve tipped over the edge into a full-fledged Material Girl. I got a message from one of my best friends this afternoon freaking out because one of the women working at DeBois was actually holding the fabric that she’s been searching for ever since she bought some in North Carolina a few years ago. She begged and pleaded with me to go back over to the warehouse and see if I could find the bolt of fabric and buy it all for her. Which I did… because I love her and she’s a great friend!
This is Trina Turk’s “Sunglasses” print. They have this in a few different colourways.
I am very drawn to some of the geometrics.
Lest you think that I just go and gawk at these gorgeous fabrics and textiles, I actually bought a few yards of the Trina Turk and whipped up a duvet cover. A friend from Wales is coming to stay at the end of the week, and I thought it would be nice to spruce up the guest room for him… Not that he’ll notice!Believe me, Connor’s not too happy by his mum’s newest addiction, especially since it’s less than a mile from the house and I can just pop over to check out the goodies!If you’ve made the trip to DeBois – and I know that some of you have – leave a comment or send me an e-mail! I’d love to know what you got!
****** Several people have asked whether DeBois has an on-line presence for the fabrics. When I asked about this, they told me that they can't sell the fabrics on-line because of their agreements with the fabric houses. Other people have asked me to buy for them, but I just can't get in to that. It's just too fraught with issues. Sorry.******
