secret preparations...


Allthough we both hardly found time in our busy schedules, Sabien and I did go to the Audax Textile Museum today. We prepared Sabien's celebration of the 5th anniversary of her company called Engel. For that she invited her designers, which I am - lucky me - to have their textile dreams realised. We will design our own personal woven and/or embroidered tablecloth and napkins (or teatowels, for me!!) and the technical people of the museum will make it happen.
Isn't this the most wonderful present ever? Well, we already spotted great techniques, yarns, colors and inspirational ideas today... In the coming weeks we will have to design and on the 18th of March we'll go there for a whole day to have the designs converted into real textiles. I am so excited... I'll keep you posted!

  2. Wow! Ik heb ooit het idee gehad mijn doodles daar te laten verwerken tot tafellakens, maar, te prijzig... Wat een prachtige gelegenheid! En wat een geluk! Geniet ervan.

  4. Dat is echt heel erg tof! Ooit heb ik geweven, dat is echt te gek om te doen! Natuurlijk zal dat daar een knap staaltje computer gestuurd weven zijn, maar toch, de techniek erachter is echt leuk.
    Ik hou het in de gaten hier, want ik ben reuze benieuwd!

    Groetjes Guusje

  7. Sorry, Deborah, we had so little time and were so overwhelmed...don't remember the name of the artist. I do remember that photo nr 4 is not a piece of art (it does look like it!) It is just a detail of a sock-knitting machine in the textile laboratory!
