Interview with Lizzy House via Melanie of "A Sewing Journal"
A: During a power outage in Idaho the week of Christmas 09'. I read the stories aloud to a group of friends, and I was totally smitten.
A: It's hard to say. I love the royal city, and I love my peeps, but I am really excited about my geometric pieces in this collection, and I am really REALLY happy that Pearl Bracelet is back. Oh and illuminate (the candles). I just think there is something sparkling and really special about this collection.
A: Finishing. The cleaning up of things to get them in a state where you can start working with them in a way that your manufacturer or a mill could understand. It just isn't any fun, and usually takes me just as long as designing a new line! Pre-press ruins my life.
A: I like the discovery of something. I work in sort of a manic way. I just turn stuff out for about 2 weeks solid (literally all day and night). It might not mean anything at all, but it's the place I have to put myself in to start getting patterns and ideas worth keeping. After those 2 weeks, the abstraction of my ideas start to solidify, and it's as if a path is laid before me. And it's on this path that I feel like I am getting answers and discovering things that I would not have otherwise been able to conclude had I not spent all that time in the process.
Q: Do you listen to music when you design? A certain type?
That will conclude the interview. Thanks so much to Lizzy for the great interview! Please be sure to enter this weeks giveway below for the Fat Quarter set of 1001 Peeps in the Basra Blue color way!
