Amy Butler’s UK visit July 29, 2009

Amy Butler is doing a tour of the UK this August – there are only a few details about it on her website so far, but I was interested to see she’s spending a few days at the NEC’s Festival of Quilts. Could this be to launch a new fabric line? It seems it’s been a little while since new fabrics from her came out, so I’m keeping my fingers crossed. The website for one of the venues, Cowslip in Launceston, says: “Amy Butler reveals her newest fabrics and publications, and offers an insight into her unique talent.” Sounds promising!

I’d love to see new prints in darker colours that I can use to make clothing – many of her prints recently have been rather pale, which, pretty as they are, don’t suit my colouring. Her tour doesn’t bring her anywhere near me – but lucky Amy is getting a visit to Liberty’s in London, which I’m sure she’ll enjoy.
