It’s hard to believe it’s already mid-January; December flew by and then suddenly it was 2014! I hope the first few weeks of the new year have been treating you well, and look forward to seeing what the world of textile design has in store for us all this year. Today I’d like to slow down for a moment, and take a look back at last month’s features, set to some fun tunes by Jahzzar. Even though we took a week off for the holidays, December was still packed full of great posts! We interviewed Carolyn Friedlander, explored trends with Aaryn Nutter, and shared the work of some incredibly talented designers like Phillippa Copping, Dikla Levsky, and more. To re-visit the posts featured in this video, you can scroll down and click back through previous pages of the blog, or use the search bar at top right. Be sure to visit the Pattern Observer YouTube channel as well, to view past vignettes, interviews and other great video content. Have a wonderful month! -Chelsea
