Camilla David Textiles & a Barn Sale

A few months ago House Beautiful featured this charming Camilla David Little Lambs pattern as one of their favorite 19 embroidered fabrics. I just love it. Camilla was raised in Washington and is now locally based in Bethesda, MD. A former interior designer, she has turned her attention towards textile design with the goal to modernize the look of freshly-picked flowers with unusual, geometric coordinates. The patterns are joyful and the fabric is either all natural 100% Cotton, 100% Linen or a blend of both. (above photography by Phillip Friedman)

These fabrics are available through trade showrooms; here in DC they can be viewed at J. Lambeth & Company. For the full collection, go here.

I also wanted to pass on some news from a local reader - Sharon Hayden of Fabulous Finds is holding one of her well known Barn Sales this Saturday May 15th from 8 am - 4 pm, 1870 Hunter Mill Road Vienna, VA. It looks like a terrific event and a portion of the sales will be given to the Susan G. Komen Foundation in honor of her friend Lucy, a cancer survivor. Go here to see more of the vintage items that will be available. (If you can't make the Spring barn sale, Sharon also offers her finds via her website between sales) Have a great weekend!

Thanks for the heads up....this sale is minutes from my house....I think we will have to take a detour on our way to the "Rocknocerous" concert. Don't tell my husband.....glamorous life for sure. Have a great weekend.

Thank you for sharing. The mirror is beautiful and leaves me wondering about the other fab finds.... I might stop by. Thank you. Enjoy the weekend.

The Camille David textiles are indeed very beautiful. I could, quite happily, get lost in piles of them for hours. Thanks for the reminder. With so much to chose from out there, it's easy to forget about some of the good ones.

I met with Camilla David last week when she was in Atlanta, a delightful lady with a great deal of talent! Her new collections now feature coordinates to go with all of her beautiful embroidered patterns. I will be featuring her new patterns on our site next week, so gorgeous!

Thank you for introducing us! These are just wonderful fabrics. I was at the Surtex show yesterday and one booth that attracted me was a Japanese designer who also had some very simple, line drawn with watercolor, flowers: they were superb.
Will bookmark these textiles.
