Hello,
Creativo is reaching out to textile/surface designers across the globe and we came across your website. We feel that your work would be a great addition to our pool of designs.
Right now Creativo is looking to work with freelance textile designers to design for the different apparel markets we serve. We are working at the moment on putting together the collections for next year trade shows. Just to give you an idea, we have boys, girls, juniors, women’s and men’s collections (swimwear, street wear…etc.)
Please contact Alex @ http://www.thinkcreativo.com if you or any designers are interested in being represented in the US market.

OMG! All of that is so awesome. Ever since I embroidered a correction to my daughter's onesie I have been loving embroidering text... this post has opened my eyes to new possibilities.
I'M INSPIRED!!!

Oooh, is that a job offer up there KTpops?!

You silly duffa. Take offence? Who me? By you? Not way José!

Thanks for being so quick to welcome me back. You're a gem. And my, haven't you been busy while I've been away (I really love your shopping bags). As for this post, I'm rather partial to the artist book. We covered these in our last term, but little ol' me ran out of time to try my hand at such a thing. Add it to the 'to do' list!

Ingrid Mida said...

I have tried embroidering text and I found it incredibly difficult so I'm really impressed by what I see here. I wonder if there are any tricks?
Love your blogs!! How do you find time to write two and still do your own artwork?
