For our April 6-pack, Silk Road Textiles brings you “Silk Road” by Debra Valencia. The “Silk Road” fabric line is a modern take on motifs from along the ancient route including paisleys, mandalas, and geometric borders. This 6-pack features the designs in Valencia’s “Slate” colorway – rosy pinks, dusky grays, and fresh greens. These colors are pulled straight from a gentle, South Asian spring morning, just before sunrise. One particular group of pre-dawn devotees have turned to Debra Valencia’s designs to add beauty to their early morning ritual. We’re talking, if you can believe it, about surfers! Valencia’s Silk Road print is a popular surf board decoration. It’s this kind of juxtaposition of new and old that just makes us smile.
As always, a coordinating spool of Presencia thread is included with your six fat quarters. As a bonus, we’re also including a free mystery pattern developed especially for the Silk Road – Slate collection. Share what you’ve created with your sampler at our next Sampler Circle meeting, Tuesday, May 21 from 6:30-8pm. Interested in becoming a 6-pack sampler member? Give us a call or stop by.
