Pinkerville from Tula Pink arrives w/c 25th March 2019! Tula Pink has created another show stopper collection with unicorns, sea serpents and other magical creatures. Here’s what Tula has to say about Pinkerville ( Freespirit Fabrics)
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!
We’re ordered the entire collection! Here’s some quick links to feed your Tula fix:
The De la Luna Sisters are the not so distant cousins of the Von Black sisters, who made somewhat of a name for themselves a few years ago in collection called Night Shade. While the Von Black sisters drew their power from more earthly elements, the De la Luna sisters cull their magical gifts from the spirit realm. Once a year, as fall crashes into winter, the matriarchs of the De la Luna clan call on their ancestors, acting as vessels for their vast power. Maria De la Luna, the youngest of the three sisters can see into the great distance of the future as she draws her power from the most clairvoyant spirits in their lineage. She uses her prophetic sight to write letters to mean girls informing them of the exact time and place that they will die or sometimes when their boyfriends will break up with them depending on how mean they are. The middle Sister, Magnolia De la Luna, is perhaps the most cunning of the three although it’s hard to tell because she doesn’t wear glasses and everyone knows that the smartest people always wear glasses. Magnolia, Maggie for short, draws her power from the spirits of earth and bloom. She uses her potent power to cultivate and nurture vast gardens and lush landscapes for her highest paying clients. Oh, did I forget to mention that she runs a surprisingly successful landscape architecture firm in their prosperous south Texas town? The oldest sister, Venus De la Luna, the undisputed caretaker of the whole De Luna clan and best friend to her cousin Scarlet Von Black has a vary mysterious past. Venus leaves a trail of admirers where ever she goes. Great empires have fallen under her angelic gaze. Many great men sit alone in padded rooms spending endless days and boundless nights whispering her name to no one in – particular. She swears that she did nothing to encourage their favor and was only, ever, minding her own business. Just because these men choose to buy her gifts from her extensive online wish list is truly no fault of her own
What a crazy 10 days for Free Spirit Fabrics! One minute there were here, then they had closed and now they are being bought out so their fabric is back up again!
So the good news… Tula Pink Allstars is on its way! It left continental Europe today (Wednesday) and is heading through blizzards to get to our door. So this time next week we should be surrounded in all 18 glorious bolts of AllStars! Bundles are up already, and I’ll be loading the individual fat quarters over the next few days.
If you are in the Dorset area, we will be co-hosting a Pop Up with Eternal Maker in Stourpaine Village Hall and we will be bringing all these lush bolts with us.
So a date for the calendar:
Stourpaine Village Hall, Dorset
And if you fancy a great little workshop while youre there, why not book a place with Kim Edith and learn how to textile scrapbook!
