As some of you will know I was shortlisted for Best Fabric Collection at the Northern Design Awards, 2010. The other shortlisted companies were:
- Gallery 22 for their Need’k fabric collection
- Montgomery for their Esquire collection
- James Hare Silks
We had a great night at the Grosvenor Hotel and Spa in Chester on Friday evening, starting with a champagne reception at 7pm, a wonderful meal from the Michelin Stared chef and the Awards Ceremony hosted by Nick Knowles of DIY SOS!
There were some wonderful winners in all the categories not least the Best Fabric Collection which was won by…..
I’d like to congratulate Gallery 22 for being farsighted and retailing Need’k's wonderfully innovative collections.
I feel truly honoured to have been shortlisted with such wonderful manufacturing companies, since I am a designer maker hand weaving bespoke fabrics for my clients in my studio at home. Needless to say, my designs are woven for my clients with just as much care, consideration and passion as the manufacturers and would like to feel that I provide a very high level of customer care, too.
Take a look at my shortlisted collection and if you are interested in my textiles you might like to look at my website, Alison Yule Textiles. Please keep looking at my website over the next few weeks, it’s being radically updated and will have a small retail area where you will be able to by some one off pieces.
