Our goal was always to get back to it someday, but we never intended our absence from designing to be this long. In our defense though, these last eight years we have been a bit busy – we have moved house twice and opened and still operate full time our quilt shop in Southern Pines, NC, called Linderella’s Quilt Works. Running the shop by itself is a “48 hour/7 day” a week job times two…but we’re not complaining though…our customers are super and best of all, we love our jobs – what could be better than that! But now that the quilt shop is established and in a routine, we are ready to get back to designing fabrics and quilt patterns….
The exciting news is that we decided to form a new company and call it Colourwerx…….. Why a new company? Well, we could have stayed with the name Linderella’s and why not? Linderella’s is well known, there is an established quilt shop and website to accompany it and a portfolio of dozens and dozens of popular quilt designs and illustrations that have been published under that name….but Linderella’s is also known for playful, whimsical and character driven designs and graphics…although those fun designs will never go away – and some may even pop up in new colourways under the Colourwerx name – we felt that going forward we needed a new vehicle and a new name that embodied our goal of creating bold surface design that was more stylized, graphic, and contemporary….a fresh start….hence the name Colourwerx – mixing our love of colour with the industrious nature of our spirit for design….. Now to get back to the drawing boards where the creative mojo, we’re happy to report, is overflowing! Until your next colour fix ~ Linda & Carl
