Kathy Hall from Andover Fabrics also attended Jo's "Sewing in the Orchard" retreat. She explained the process of how fabric is designed and how it is then printed. Kathy explained how reproduction fabric is designed from the antique piece and how you need to have the repeat design in the fabric to be able to reproduce it into "new" fabric. Very informative and really interesting!
Kathy gave each one of us a keepsake... an applique heart made with antique fabric using one of Jo's fabrics for the background piece. Old and the new together!
I had Jo and Kathy autograph my applique heart and when I came home I had it custom framed.
I love it!
