I'm so pleased to announce my next fabric line with Marcus Fabrics called.......
Treenware & Berries
The photo above shows a sample of some of the early American treenware I've collected. Basically, treenware is (an umbrella term for) any household item that was made, carved, or whittled from wood...in essence from a "tree". Think...household items made from a tree.
Early American treenware is plentiful and easily found in antique shops. Some items very affordable, and some much more expensive. Most common are cutting boards, both plain and fancy, spoons, ladles, paddles, butter presses, bowls, plates, dough bowls, rolling pins, highly sought after noodle boards, graters, and innumerable kitchen utensils.
So now that you know what treenware is....why use that name for the fabric collection? Well....I love using terms from the nineteenth century, and this collection has lovely, warm browns, a few reds, and luscious creams. Basically brown and red.....Treenware and Berries!
Here's a little sneek peak at a few of the fabrics in the Treenware & Berries collection.
I'll show you the entire line in my next post! Have a good weekend!!
