I belong to several discussion groups, one of them being The Art of Licensing which provides a wealth of generous information from its members regarding all aspects of licensing. Tomorrow Tara Reed has a free tele-seminar call coming up for licensing and character licensing with Jill Seale, the creator of the "Nunn for the Road" characters. http://www.askjillseale.com/call-details.html Fran & Freda are dancing with joy, they want to be in on the call and have already posted their questions! They want to listen in as well but I am still not sure where there ears are!
The moderator of the list Franchelle Contreras has a new fabric line which will be available at Quilt Market next month. Colors are gorgeous especially the colorway with purple and lime green is my favorite. The Art of Possibility Studios is having a party in their booth introducing their new fabric. There is something special about fabric, textiles wrap and clothe us, furnish our homes, our intimate places, bedrooms, bathrooms with comfort and beauty. To see your designs in fabric is a thrill and then to see it translated into garments and home decor even more exciting. At present we are working on a new fabric line, it takes about a year to see it through to completion so not ready yet but I will be at Quilt Market celebrating everyone elses lovely lines and promoting my new book Sweatshirt Remix. I also get to hang out in the Creative Homearts Booth and demo some designs I have done for the upcoming Holiday issue.
Today is International Lymphoma Awareness Day and a dear friend Sue Warden lost her only child Nicholas to Lymphoma in January. Sue with a spirit that just lights up a room is now working tirelessly for the cause, promoting awareness with her usual determination and style! We had the opportunity to spend time together at summer CHA and was deeply moved by her resilient spirit, she carries on her son's request to live life and make a difference! She is!
Follow the JOY! Debra, CEO!
