I am enjoying the last of the Summer at Albaquirky Designs and I hope you are getting a little September sun too! There is a big burst of Summer colour on it's way to Premier Vision in Paris next week; I have lots of lovely florals on display at Collect Scotland's stand in Hall 5 at stand 5W36.
I've been busy preparing all the fabric to go off to Paris for the last few weeks. I have a great printer up in Glasgow (CAT Digital), but I'm always a little nervous awaiting my parcel from them... no need to worry though the prints were fantastic!
It takes around two weeks to get the work back from the printer, just enough time to go on holiday in search of new inspiration (more on that topic in my next blog post)!
Preparing for the show
After the parcel of gorgeous silk-cotton arrives, I'm then busy getting it all ready to exhibit. Cutting, edging and mounting each piece. A rare sighting of a hot ironing board can even be seen!
For those of you who follow my Instagram feed @albaquirkydesigns you'll have been getting a few more insights into some of the work on the way to the show.
I'd love you to come and visit my studio Collect Scotland at the show (Sept 13th - 15th) to see the full collection alongside some other very talented Scottish surface pattern designers. Wishing everyone a successful show!
