Fabric Time Traveler destination: 1930s and 1940s
Revival Fabrics has been in other publications, and I've been interviewed for Oregon's largest newspaper in the past about my love of vintage printed tablecloths ---- and now I'm really feeling like a smarty pants! Tomorrow I may drop my drawers on accident, but for today, Smarty Pants!
For the Fall 2007 issue of Creative Home magazine I was interviewed for the article that starts on page 94, "Nostalgic Notions: Find out How to Buy, Decorate With, and Care for Vintage Fabrics." The author Ann Wilson did a fabulous job writing the article about what to look for in 1930s and 1940s fabric. The magazine is on the stands now and until the beginning of October.
The more I research the history of fabric and the proper care of old textiles, the more I realize that there are volumes of knowledge to learn. That is half the fun of vintage fabric, discovering the unusual, and learning something new all the time.
