How it all started

Do you know that some of the most successful people got started in their garage or someone else's garage? 

Steve Jobs (Apple), Sarah Blakely (spanks), Jeff Bezos (Amazon), Walt Disney, Lary Page & Sergery Brin (Google), William S. Harley (Harley Davidson), Harold Matson (Mattel), Michael Kittredge (Yankie Candle).

 

How we got started the early years.

We started on an 24 " wide folding table that I had in college as an extra drawing table, in the garage, printing 24" taping it down and printing and then moving it and repeating this process until all yardage was complete. Everyday I got up extra early and stood in the garage to print fabric, why so early? Because I need to be complete before my husband came home so that he could park his car at some point. The fabric would cascade on tubes suspend from the garage ceiling way above his car so that it could fully cure prior to heat setting the fabric.

 

This process grew for me to have several folding tables, which added a rolling rack out of the garage,  past the neighbors house allowing for 20 yards of fabric to dry. All still needing to be collapsed each evening. Although my husband did park on the street on occasion. This was our deal and he diligently help string up many countless yards of fabric each night.

 

Built to last 

Although we have contounied to stay small we no long use the small folding table. We still have it and now we cover it with fabric for all of our product photo shoots and ocainsally we have dressed up the paint covered table with fine china and served thanksgiving or Christmas eve dinner.

 

I smile on the inside when people are enjoying themselves at this hard workingtable with so much history printed under the linens and china.

There is no such thing as a humble beginning, it's just where you started and to get anywhere you must start somewhere.

 

The chalange

My challenge to you is start something new, don't worry about what it will look like, if it's a fancy office, if its perfect, JUST START!

Cheers-

Happy Starting!

Dealers Choice

It is so much fun when a designer call us and want to "play" with our fabrics. When they bring in paint swatches, other fabrics, or even there favorite accessory for us to match, or create an anchor for the space they are working on. Designer Frank Pitman is known for being bold and daring. It was a true pleasure to work with him to create textiles for one of his projects.
