Q: What was the first seed that grew into the Northcote Range collection?
A: The original inspiration was the past – time worn prints of gentle florals that our grandmothers might have used. It was a marvellous opportunity of producing fabric to be used in many applications – for dresses, cushions, bags and of course quilts.
Q: What are 3 words you would choose to describe this collection?
Q: What single print/SKU in the collection is your favorite (can only pick one!)?
A: This is a very mean question. I was looking them up online (forgetting that i was only allowed one!) and chose five- so the blue samford stripe (moda #35202-17)!
Q: What is your dream project using this collection?
A: My dream project was to come up with ideas for the photography to promote the collection – i.e. about ten things from sweet shorts to a doris day dress!
