Designer!


When I went down to Brisbane I had the pleasure in meeting Thea at her studio in Capalaba. If only I had been able to stay longer as I would have loved to do one of the work shops Thea holds on screen printing. Her studio is so interesting; I had my own personal tour of how the process works, fascinating! Thea is one creative lady who is oozing inspiration. We had a good chat over a nice cup of tea. I felt like we had known each other for years.


I had ordered some of Thea's Margarite linen with which I will be making some products; but to be honest it's so gorgeous I just keep looking at it! I am going to have to be brave & cut through it!!



Also picked up one of these gorgeous dresses they are so comfy & in the tropical Queensland heat it certainly keeps me cool. Thanks again Thea & thank you for the lovely linen butterfly print T towel you gave to me; it was very kind of you.

Next time I am in Brisbane I am definitely going to sign up for the work shop & have a go at screen printing it look's like great fun! You can find Thea at the Southbank Young Designers Markets in Brisbane, if you get the chance please go see her as she has the most exquisite products.

Yes, Thea is an amazing talent. I know it will be hard to cut that fabric, I have the same problem with a piece I have...

I think it would be so fascinating to take a screen printing class.

I like the Magarite print.
The screen printing is a good fun. It needs a patient and quite tricky technique. Looking forward to see how will you cut the beautiful Magarite and turn it into something nice. I'll be in Brisbane next month. I'll try to make it to her studio. Thanks for the info.

That dress looks so comfy, and it is adorable! I love the fabrics as well. They are so natural and pretty.

Oh dear, I'm only just catching up with my blog reading this week. Thanks for the lovely words. Go on.. cut the Marguerite linen! I'm dying to see what you do with it.
I know I feel the same way about not cutting into vintage fabric I have had for years but we can always print more of my prints ;)
