  There is a need for unique textile art with a personal touch. Sometimes you want to make that special  dress or baby quilt. You want  that accent pillow in your home  to not be sitting on everyone's sofa or bed. You want to make that heartfelt wedding gift and not want to use a fabric that can be bought at every fabric chain.  Indie artist Francine Bailey understands that. Through her many interests and life experiences she brings you her interpretation of the world and the things in it to life through her work as an artist and adapts that art for surface design. Bringing you unique, beautiful and in many cases whimsical fabrics. Among her designs you will find fabrics for use in home decor, apparel, quilts and everything in between.

 Francine has thrown herself into her art as a form of therapy. She has since decided to share her art through a medium she holds dear. Coming from a sewing background and trying her hand in interior design she has a love and appreciation for textile art. Through the Spoonflower platform she brings to you her fabrics and home decor items. If you are looking for something specific for a sewing project or interior design project, she will be happy to help you find it among her designs, sometimes creating it for you when she can. When she cant many times she can find someone who can among the members of SAGE (Surface Artists Guild of Excellence) of which she is a member.

Why Spoonflower?

 Spoonflower allows customers to select the type of fabric they want and there is a large selection. Say you want to make a dress out of 100% cotton but you would like the same design printed on chiffon or gauze to make a matching scarf, you have that ability. Most fabric stores are what you see is what you get. As an interior designer you might want to be able to choose the fabric you want on a clients pillows. Do you want Eco canvas, linen cotton blend or perhaps velvet? It is nice to have options.  You can purchase wallpaper  and already sewn home decor items through them also. Another wonderful benefit to buying from Spoonflower is Spoonflower’s digital print process. Their print process uses water-based pigment inks & dyes, with very little waste. They avoid using  toxic inks and wasteful practices. Doing everything they can to help the environment with their print-on-demand process, that is designed to minimize fabric and ink waste,  printing and using only what is necessary.
