Rediscovering Treasured People

Today I heard that Pookie Blezard is having a sale, 70% off!  Pookie is one of the most creative textile designers I have met.  She resides in London, designing some of the most out of the box, off the planet scarves and clothing I have seen.  I had the opportunity to visit her in her studio during the last decade, just when she was  getting a new textile printer.  Crammed with fabrics all over the place, most she had designed and had printed, she demonstrated her technique of free motion on a very old but true single needle machine.  She was always ahead of her time.   Most everything she makes is one of a kind.  I have been collecting her work for 15 years.   If you come across a label that reads "Pazuki London", grab it.

So if you get a chance to check out her facebook page, I promise you will see things you have not experienced.
