It's All About the Fabric Choices

I love to sew and I love to surprise people when they see how a simple fabric choice can change the energy of a room. Many of my clients rely on me to provide ideas on the best fabrics for pillows, cushions and curtains and I love showing them swatches of the newest designs.



The type of fabric that a client chooses is very important I always ask some simple questions about the use of the space. Questions such as:

  • What will the space be used for?

  • Will it be a high traffic area?

  • What colors do you like?

  • Will it be used regularly or just when guests come over?

  • What type of light does the room have?

  • Do you have any pets?

  • Do you have any children?

Once these questions are answered, we can discuss the best fabric choices and designs. I work with many different companies that provide fabrics and here are some of my favorites.
