Sneak peak..? Don't mind if I do!

We are terrible at keeping secrets around here, and coz we're so gosh-darn excited about our new little project we thought we'd share it with you.

But firstly... with the New Year, came a few little changes around ol' I&S HQ! We took a moment to sit down and reflect on the whirlwind past 12 months, and made some interesting decisions.

Firstly, dear Bee decided that she wanted to pursue her career in marketing in more depth and so she has left I&S. It was a big difficult decision but in the end it was for the best. But fear not! We are still going to print her designs and they will be available in our shop & at shows as per usual (and we're all still friends!) ;)

Secondly, we decided to consolidate our fabric range, so once these guys are sold out, that'll be the last we see of them!

Thirdly, and most excitedly we have decided to release textile 'suites' this year! They are going to consist of carefully selected colourways & designs! ...and maybe the occasional new design- if the business ever gives us time to draw again :)

So that's enough jibber-jabber, you'll be wanting to see the pics!

Like I said, sooooo gosh-darn excited.

YAY!

Thanks for the heads up! Just grabbed some Sumor in Charcoal for another pillow I am re-covering! Loved seeing your fabrics in Real Living this issue - thanks to Matt's bags.

Isn't that berry hemp so delicious. I love all the amazing colours they've got going, and all naturally dyed. Who needs chemicals!!
