Fabric

A SCARF!

I have a new venture in the world of fabric: designing scarves for DragonThreads. My first design is called Summer Birds. If you read the book Summer Birds by Margarita Engle you will know that butterflies used to be called summer birds. This design includes birds and butterflies.  Here is the painting for the scarf:

I repeated the painting 8 times to create the final design.

And wrote a short poem for the label.

The scarf will be ready to ship at the end of March and will cost $48. Dragon Threads is printing a limited edition. If you would like to preorder one, please go to this link to the scarf at Julie Paprika. THANK YOU!

YARDAGE:
I design one or two lines of fabric a year for In the Beginning Fabrics. This has been a great opportunity and pleasure.

I have learned that fabric is like fruit: it has a short shelf life. Once a new design is released it is available for a season and then retired. For this reason it is hard for me to put links to buy fabric: the links quickly become obsolete. The best way for you to find my fabric on-line is to do a google search with the words “Paschkis, In the Beginning Fabric” and the name of the line if you know it. Gathering Fabric in Woodinville, Washington usually carries my most current fabric.

Here are samples of designs from my most recent lines.

      In the Seattle area both Gathering Fabric and Pacific Fabrics usually have some of my designs. On-line you can usually buy the current line at Paducah of Kentucky. The next line to come out is Azuli, later in July. Quilterstudio.com has several older designs.

    Your fabric is beautiful. I mostly buy fabric online, I’m disabled and no quilt shops very close. I saw the article about you on the quilt show. You are my new favorite. So unique! I wish you much success.

    where to go as I have already contacted Gathering Fabrics and they do
    not have the fabric. Thanks.

      That design isn’t being made any more.Unfortunately fabric is seasonal!
      I googled “Julie Paschkis Kalinka Fabric” and there was quite a bit of it on Etsy. I hope that you can find what you are looking for there.

  5. Hi Julie, I was just wondering what exactly inspired you to do this kind of work and to pick this particular theme which occurs in your work?

      I love drawing patterns and colors – that’s why I like to design fabric. Sometimes the fabrics that I design tell stories, but more often they are just made for the pleasure of pattern.

  6. Julie, I saw your artwork at i. e. gallery in Edison, WA, and I immediately recognized it. The lady at the gallery told me about your website. Thank you for making your art accessible through your fabrics designs!

  7. Enjoy your fabric line! Bought the last 1/2 yard of black and cream Bohemia when visiting Oregon recently. Where can I get more?

    • Thank you for your message. I don’t know where you can get more fabric. Your best bet would be to google “Paschkis Bohemia In the Beginning Fabric”. Maybe some yardage is lurking in the interwebs. Good luck!
