It is a truth universally acknowledged…

Leafing through Country Living magazine, I came across this photo:

It is advertising Spoonflower.com — a site where you may upload you own ideas for textiles! This upholstery fabric is said to date from an 1882 family letter.

Spoonflower.com allows you to adjust image-size, choose repeats, and choose type of fabric. I’ve even found where pillows were featured on the Nate Berkus Show.

No minimum fabric to order, or set-up fee.  Order a swatch for $5; a yard for as little as $16.20.

They’re based in Durham, North Carolina (home of Duke University, where the diaries of Mary Gosling reside!), and ship worldwide.

I can well imagine some Austen fans flocking to have upholstery fabric with their favorite quotes, can’t you???

Here’s some “Austen-inspired” fabrics on Spoonflower.com.

    Thank you for pinning this article from Country Living Mag. I remember seeing it an wanting to upholster my mother’s winged chairs with her handwriting. When she passed, she was trying to win a radio contest by writing all the words to “Unforgettable”. I cried when I figured out why she was writing such touching words. Now those words in her handwriting can be upholstered onto her chairs….forever! Thanks.
