Hey! That's Swell!

I am SO, SO pleased to announce that I am currently working with Cloud 9 Fabrics, developing a line of fabric called "Hey! That's Swell" for Spring 2012 release! This is a real dream come true for me and I couldn't be more thrilled about the opportunity to work with such a great company. Cloud 9 is committed to creating ecologically responsible organic fabrics at a fantastic price, making it easier to afford to sew with quality organic materials. I'm telling you, their fabric is gorgeous! It's a match made in heaven as I always strive to create beautiful things that have a small environmental impact, whether it being using recycled materials or natural / organic ones. I've admired Michelle's work for such a long time and it's really such an honor to work with her, I still want to pitch myself every day. I mean seriously, Michelle has worked with designers such as Julia Rothman, Heather Moore and most recently Ed Emberley! I couldn't ask for better company.

The line will fall into the Cloud 9 Kid's division and will feature those loveable Long Dog's prominently as well as several new faces. That's about all I can share about the designs now as things are still in their very early stages. The line will be branded "June Craft" rather than with just my name. This was a long, thought out decision and it seemed to make the most sense as the designs relate very directly to my June Craft work. I think it'll be a very exciting extension of that work and will compliment the shop so very nicely. More will be revealed at Quilt Market this fall, which is just around the corner. So enough talking, I have to get back to work!
