the cat is OUT OF THE BAG!
My little sister (Becca) and I started a little venture earlier this summer. Remember all the fun things that can happen in a 5 + week period when you are on vacation? Yes. Me too.
So, we designed a fabric line and... shocker of all shockers... it's being produced in REAL life by a REAL company that WANTED our designs! So, what does that mean? Well, I'll tell you. They are PRE-selling it at the Quilt Market in October, and then it will hit your local quilt shops and favorite fabric places this next SPRING!
I know, we are dying too!!!
Our design "alias" is melimba & beccabury. You can guess who is who.
Pretty darn exciting. We can't believe it all actually happened, and it's been a ton of work to fine tune every little detail... hence, why we have been neglecting the blog-o-sphere for a looooong time.
Anyway, you want to see the rest of the line? Really? Well, okay. We'll allow it. Feel free to check out my new website (www.melimba.com, under the fabric section) where you can see what we've come up with.
We're already in the thick of coming up with more designs, so we're thinking this is pretty fun venture---not to mention a life-long dream. I guess Becca being a graphic design major and me graduating in painting/drawing wasn't such a bad idea after all!
Let us know your thoughts and also, what you think we should do for another line. We'd love to hear your opinions/thoughts/comments/whatev's.
Anyway, thought you'd like to know the news and see the goods! We've had to be pretty "hush hush" about it all, but now we've received the go-ahead to SHOW and TELL. So, there you go.
Gracias for your patience!
