congrads on the cover and the rest!! Its always fun to see your stuff in magazines. The shoot came out great and your fabrics look perfect. I always love seeing my products in stores and its funny how your friends and family always will call you and let you know that they saw them.

I will have to see that HGTV show, lord knows I watch that channel all the time!


That was one of my absolute favorite Christmas articles from any magazine. My sister and I even talked about it on the phone. And it isn't a surprise that both Matthew Mead and you were involved in it!


How exciting and how beautiful!! Your fabric is beautiful! I love yours and Jennifer's. They make my daughters' outfits turn heads!! Thanks for the awesome fabric collections and I am looking forward to your next one!

And that is funny about wanting to tell the lady behind you! I probably would have told her!! LOL


Your fabrics look fabulous! And I'm loving that wall color too. I wish I knew who made it and its name!

That looks like a magazine this girl will definitely be hunting down! Thanks for sharing!


The cover of the magazine looks wonderful! I'm sure that it must be super exciting for you! I plan to get the magazine the next time I go out.
I do have a quick question for you...when do you plan on introducing Lula and Delilah (I'm assuming that it is just one collection), and when will you tell us more about it? Will you still be introducing French Hatbox?
Thanks for your time!


I squealed when my copy came and just adore that photo spread! Your fabric is tres inspiring and I am so glad Matthew found a way to share it with us for Christmas!! Congrats!


Gorgeous, just gorgeous! I love all of it! The wall color is to die for...I totally agree! I am getting inspired looking at the photos (again, for the umpteenth time.) I will definitely need to get the magazine now!

This cover is one of my favorite Christmas covers to date! The colors just *pop* and with a combination like you and Matthew Mead no wonder it's beautiful. I absolutely love the colors going on here! It's perfect.

Since receiving my subscription, I have been resisting all temptation when it comes to reading it because I haven't finished my November issue yet. (I have this weird thing about reading them in order!!) But when I saw that cover I knew it'd be hard to resist. I can't wait to crack it open!

Oh Cover-Girl! I'm so excited for you Tanya... and I'm going to rush out first thing in the morning and find me a copy. And now I'm off to set my Tivo for next Friday night! Huge congrats! xo-m


Congratulations on the cover!

The fabric is gorgeous and I have been using a lot of it lately!



I finally received mine in the mail yesterday. I just read it this morning, and that was my favorite article - really lovely!


I got the magazine in the mail yesterday and I was happy to see your fabrics featured. Yes, how gorgeous is that wall color? I love it all...and that vintage Santa tin is TDF. At first I was like..."hey, where is TW's scrapbook paper...then I saw M. photocopied it. lol.
Also, got Romantic Homes today and someone asked in the Q&A where/what the wonderful fabric was from in a previous was yours. :)

AWESOME !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Great article..sooooooo beautiful


I'm adoring my copy (I'm happy just staring at the cover!). I'm hoping to make some Christmas stockings from Ava Rose (the red rose damask just screams "Christmas!")! :)

Classics and Country

Wow! Sure looks like we share a passion! I also had a photo shown on the show.
Take Care...



I am so looking forward to your Darla fabrics coming out. When are they expected to be in stores?

I love the Country Home cover, I went and bought it and I love how they featured your fabrics for Christmas decorating. Congrats!

Happy Holidays!


It is beautiful!!!Wish I can buy it here.....

What a great article and pictures. I was so excited when I saw it because I use your fabrics in my bags and aprons. Congrats on a job well done!
