Gail Ingis | Designer Fabrics, Clarence House, and Design Divas

Instagramtwitterpinterestfacebookblog

I love doing my blog. I have invited some of my fellow historic SMP writers for interviews. The response to my invite was encouraging. I also invite my Connecticut Chapter of Romance Writer’s (CTRWA) of America writers. Without my CTRWA group, I wouldn’t even be here. They are amazing. One of our writers won the Rita Award this year. We have quite a chapter in Connecticut.

Hi, Writers—

During my Interior Design Career, access to the best fabric showrooms in the world were available for my company to purchase yardage for my clients . . . at wholesale prices. This was not about bargain fabrics, but rather about beautiful, enduring fabrics, not seen or available in the retail market. The experience is enriching for the professional and the client. In most circumstances these fabrics could last a lifetime, yet still maintain their beauty. Today’s blog gives you some history on designer fabrics, Clarence House, and Design Divas.

Cheers,
Gail

Re: Gail Ingis | Designer Fabrics, Clarence House, and Design Divas

I would have loved to have gone just once to one of those showrooms, just to have seen these beautiful fabrics, since I took Interior Design in school, and always loved it. It had to be an amazing experience, and a lot of fun, although tiring. Now it gives you a lot of material (no pun intended) to write about!!
