Color dreams do come true!!
Introducing Marmalade Dreams!! Valor Wells, stunning Spring Summer Collection
and also… the collaboration between her and Blue Moon to introduce yarns that have been dyed to match her palette and pattern design!!!!
So… I have been dreaming for awhile (years) of creating color schemes based of fabric designer launches. There are so many fabric designers whose work I love and respect. I have always thought that dyeing yarn to within the palette and pattern scheme would be a great cross platform design opportunity for us knitters, crocheters, weavers, quilters and sewists. There just seemed to me to be such a rich and varied canvas to work within. I mentioned this idea of mine in February of this year to the oh so talented Valori Wells ( such a creative and talented designer) in Sisters Oregon ( yes, THAT Valori Wells!!! )
Anyway she was as over the moon about this concept as I was and it was something she had also dreamed of.
Creative dreamers do find each other!
Anyway this Spring and this lovely collection mark her 40th collection!! I know…amazing! I am thrilled to be working with Valori on this project. It is still a work- in -progress. We are swatching and adjusting color, naming them and all the good things! Valori will have it for sale at her store Stitchin’ Post in Sisters Oregon. If you are one of my yarns stores you can purchase these and we will most likely also be selling it! We will be at Quilt Market in May here in Portland with it! Yay!!!!
Okay stay tuned, there will be so very much more!
I need to post this an go feed the dog or she is going to burst something and then I am going to have to clean it up.
Valori I can’t thank you enough for this opportunity to work with you!
Truly a dream come true!!
Also I feel like I have made a lifelong friend which I so cherish!
