gorgeous handprinted fabric
Heleen of Ruby in the Dust is the designer of this wonderful range of fabric. Heleen and I talked about my stocking it in store - and believe me I definitely would - the quality and the design of the fabric is beautiful BUT and this is a big BUT if I stock it in my store I would have to put a mark up on it (I know commercial reality sucks sometimes!). My concern is that many buyers may not appreciate the difference between a hand screen printed design and a commercially printed fabric and the premium price that it deserves.
Plus I want Heleen's fabric designing to be a success and for her to sell truck loads of fabric and also make a good return on her creative design skills. So here it is - I am not selling Heleen's fabric but she is in her Etsy store here. Plus if you order before the weekend Heleen is offering freee shipping in New Zealand if you enter the code MAY11FREESHIP.
I know I will be placing my order, I love the In the Neighbourhood design above and the Early Birds...
Heleen also has a wonderful blog - Ruby in the Dust.
P.S. This product endorsement is done because I believe in this product and want to support NZ made creativity, not because I have been paid to do so or have received free gifts, which I do know goes on in blogland!
