monetizing your designs

We’re in the second week of the third pattern design class at the Art and Business of Surface Design with Rachel Taylor and Beth Kempton. This module is Monetizing Your Designs. We’ve been learning about freelancing, licensing, and manufacturing. Lots of GREAT information and I highly recommend all three modules.

The 2016/2017 Autumn/Winter trend report at PatternBank is out and available. 2017 is looking like there will be lots of lovely colors and I love the patchwork patterns. You can buy a copy of the report on their website.


Been working on a pattern for Pattern Mash and was featured on their website along with other designers. Here is the pattern, which I would love to make into a tea towel.


Does anyone have any recommendations on manufacturers for tea towels in the US?

What have you been up to this week?
