Here’s what Tula has to say about Pinkerville:

Pinkerville is a state of mind. When I design fabric, I retreat into an imaginary world of my own creation. I call that place Pinkerville. In this collection I am inviting you to join me on a journey through my own delusion! This is a place where all things are possible. Each piece in this collection is named after an attribute that is required for entrance. The Swan is your tour guide to Pinkerville as she holds the keys to the kingdom, so her print is named “Gate Keeper.” The Unicorn print is titled “Imaginarium” because this place requires a devotion to the imagined, a willingness to invent and accept things that may or may not be real. A pattern of marbled water conceals a lovable lake monster (among other things!) in a print called Blind Faith because it is a magical thing to believe in something so hard that you can turn innocuous things like shadows into evidence of the fantastic! A but­terfly conceals the face of an owl in a print titled “Enlightenment” as she is the watcher, the all-seeing eyes of Pinkerville. A delicate weaving of lace flowers makes up the print titled “Delight,” a healthy appreciation for beauty is always welcome here. A print of overlapping fans named “Serenity” reminds you to be calm and relaxed here, take it all in, there is plen­ty of time. Worry and anxiety are never welcome in Pinkerville. Finally, there is Fairy Dust that adds just a sprinkle of rainbow magic to tie it all together! Welcome to my world, the space between my ears, the water is warm so shed the heavy baggage of reality and dip a toe into Pinkerville!

Here’s more about Tula Pink :

Tula Pink is an illustrator, a fabric designer, a quilter, an author, a maker and a generally good person who enjoys talking about herself.

Tula graduated from Otis College of Art and Design in Los Angeles, CA. It was fun but she was tired of being broke so she decided to get a job. Tula worked briefly as an Exhibit designer for Museums in Southern California, where she grew up, and when that became too quiet she relocated to the music industry.

Tula now lives in a small mid-western town outside of Kansas City, MO in a house that used to be a barn and still sort of looks like one. Tula’s main function in life is fabric design.  Her signature designs have been adapted to fabrics, woven ribbons, paper products, needlepoint kits, embroidery patterns and sewing machines. Tula is most recognized in her industries for her dark sense of humor, a flair for hiding animals in the strangest of places (artistically, not literally) and her boldly unique use of color and pattern. Tula comes from the “more is more” school of design where there is never enough space and always room for that one last thing.

Today Tula Pink works closely with the good people at Free Spirit Fabrics to develop multiple fabric collections every year, is an Ambassador for BERNINA sewing machines, develops collections for Aurifil Threads and Renaissance Ribbons and writes books for F+W Media about quilting and sewing. She works all day everyday and gets very cranky when she is asked to leave the studio or if Tula Pink is her real name.
