if only I could purchase yardage here in the u.s. I would be a happy girl.

Have been loving and using Tana Lawn since the 70s, apart from a period of 80s fashion madness. Last Fall I was in Liberty and bought some beautiful Tana Lawn that looks like a summer meadow and had a dress, based on an Old Avoca dress I had, made. It's spectacular . . . Guess I need to take some photos.

Just purchased some yesterday at Liberty of London. Will make my new granddaughter a dress!

Ooh, I have this design in my stash (the liberty factory shop used to be about 6 miles away from me!)

Amanda Poindexter this is the textile your top is made out of. Liberty cotton, the best.

I love Liberty's fabrics......the problem when you are there is to pick just one or two.....😉

YES. Mrs Clemmens made them. Nana got the material when she went to Europe, right!

Comparto

Still got some. Never seems to wear out

I have some which I bought from Liberty in the early 1960s

Afghan Tribal Arts

Have you seen how they decorate buses, taxis, carts and bicycles in India, Mexico and other countries? Bright colors, tassels, lots of bling? They did that in Afghanistan, too, and bicycles, mopeds and motorcycles were as beloved as camels (also decked out in textiles!), so they got special seat covers like this one. We have several in our shop and these are truly collectible items. Silk embroidery on silk fabric. These are not functional as they are very old, but should be framed or displayed as a textile.

  • SAQA Featured Artist: Maggie Dillon
    Maggie Dillon Maggie Dillon – Sarasota, Florida, USA Artist Statement My work reawakens a calm moment that is simultaneously ordinary and meaningful. I choose images that have photojournalistic qualities and celebrate natural, honest situations. Piecing different shades and textures together, the fabric creates an open-ended story, encouraging the viewer to imagine the subjects as if they were characters in a book. I primarily work in the decades ranging from 1930s to 1950s based on candid moments – a girl’s day at the lake, a picnic in a poppy field, reading a bible in the wee hours of the morning. There is something humbler about those eras. People were less aware of the camera. Vintage images seem purer, even elegant in their simplicity. Because of this, I work in a nostalgic, subdued palette like old film. Interview (Click images to enlarge) SAQA: When did you begin making art with fabric? Do you work in other media as well?
