It has been rather quiet on the blogging front, but there has been plenty of activity behind the scenes.
My Autumn Collection is complete, there are just a few adjustments to be made. My first task will be to cover this wonderful restored and upholstered chair.
I bought it from the Woodworks which is a successful furniture workshop project for the benefit of those with mental health issues, those recovering from a history of addiction to drugs or alcohol and for people who are recovering from a major life trauma, such as a road traffic accident or stroke. http://bit.ly/1dO3uN7
Recently there has been great excitement at the workshop. The reason for this was the making of a promotional film, professionally put together by students of Bath City College with an introduction by film maker Ken Loach. It is hugely moving listening to people’s stories about their journey to recovery. Watch this space for a link to the film very soon.
It is a realy privilege to be involved with this project. Each piece of furniture has a story to tell. Here is an example of a dining chair covered with my “Giant Rose” fabric.
Finally, I am pleased to report that I have secured my first licensing contract for iPad, Kindles and iPhone cases with the American Company Solid Line Products. I love the way these cases are printed and produced. Akin to a hardback cover, they use traditional book binding techniques to make the Keka cases. Using eco-friendly inks, they start by printing the designs onto the same type of vinyl used on race cars. They then add a cast overlaminate to make the case resist water, stains and tears. The vinyl is then take the vinyl and wrapped around recycled book boards. Here is the link: http://www.kekacase.com/designer-cases/ruth-moser.html
A truly unique and personal cover for your gadget.
