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.
