The School of Making Swatch of the Month Inspiration

EXPLORATIONS IN EMBROIDERY

“My simple decision to set up a standard way of recording the development of every design and fabric has led to an elaborate library consisting of more than five hundred swatches. To date we have twenty-seven books of fabric swatches that we use for everything from custom orders for clothing and interiors to inspiration for participants in our weekend workshops. When I spread these books across one of our 14′- long work tables, I am amazed to see the beauty we’ve created. In the past, we often tested colorways in garment form. Today, before any garment is cut, a tested and completed fabric sample swatch is approved. This small step has saved the company untold money, time, and waste.”

How It Works

At the beginning of each month in 2022, participants will receive a DIY Kit featuring a unique fabric swatch to be sewn using embroidery techniques from The School of Making. Embroidery techniques for 2022 can be found in Alabama Studio Sewing + Design. Each swatch kit comes stenciled and ready-to-sew with all of the notions needed to complete the swatch in the shown design choices.

We will also be sharing the swatches, our design choices, instructions, and inspirations in an exclusive monthly newsletter. Share your project and follow along with others in the maker community using the hashtags #theschoolofmaking and #swatchofthemonth22.
