If you know me well, you know all about my extreme fondness for fabrics produced by Liberty London. Liberty has held a spot in my heart since first learning about them in 2004 when I was in design school and our teacher raved over their exciting patterns and colorways. I definitely saw what the fuss was all about then and I still do. Liberty prints and patterns are some of the best in the world in my opinion and I love them.
I use their fabrics in many of my craft projects at home and even in my workshops. Do you? I’m not sure if you know this, but when I launched my first book, Liberty was nice enough to host a large event for me at their London flagship store in April 2011. I felt I had died and gone to heaven. A day after the event, they invited me back to do a few lectures and I ran into Amy Butler who was signing books and made a new friend – a day later we were shopping together in Notting Hill. I also more recently used Liberty patterns framing pages in my new book and was thrilled that they were happy to allow me to do so.
I really love fresh new season of prints in their Flower Show collection. Some are shown above. Can you imagine all of the pretty things you can do with them? I am already dreaming of a few.
How much do you really know about Liberty fabrics? I ask because until recently, I didn’t know much about their process or production. I received a thorough education simply by watching this video narrated by Mollie Makes magazine. I respect their brand even more now – they are made in England in an old factory with real people who have a passion for this line of work producing them. How nice (and rare these days!). Please watch the video, really, it’s great.
