Inspiration: Sewing Machines!
You may not know that I actually began my design career in fashion. After earning my graduate degree from Parsons School of Design, I designed "cut and sew knits" in the clothing industry. The rigorous sewing training has given me a solid foundation in construction. I love to push the envelope, whether it be window treatments, pillows, bedding, or upholstery. Just think about how a pattern can be manipulated by cutting and sewing it into a paneled pillow. Or perhaps how a patterned fabric could be cut out and appliqued around edge of a window treatment. Or even how layering a solid fabric and can create a textured pattern. There are so many wonderful things you can do with a sewing machine! Remember to think beyond the expected!
