The Surtex countdown is on!

Oh my goodness, things really start to feel real and you understand just how close Surtex is when it’s less than a month away. In less than 4 weeks, one of my very best friends and incredible sidekick Sam and I will be getting on a plane for NYC! So excited, but can’t help but wish I could press the ‘rewind’ button so I could whip up the millions of patterns I have ideas for, but there will never be enough time so at some point, you have to make the call and get on that plane and put up your work for everyone to see. I’m super excited!!

I’ve moved booths this year but will be in the same aisle — booth 741. If you’re going, please stop by and say hello! Here’s a little sampling of what I’ll be showing (plus a link to my promo video if you haven’t seen it)! Hope you all have a great week.

      Yay! Thanks Christine :) These are prints that I’m hoping will find their way onto different products, but a few of them will be available as fabric … stay tuned 😉

      Thank you Judy! Yes, please check back in, I post when there’s news. I also do a lot of posts with new work on Facebook under Elizabeth Olwen Surface Design if you’d like to see updates :)

    Looking good, Elizabeth! Think we will be in the same aisle again. We should hang out in NY.

      Thanks Jeanetta! Yeah, I’m hoping there will be something to do after the show one night — like Monica Lee had something last year? Fingers crossed! Would be great to properly catch up!
