Yes I realize IHAN does not sell Northcott Fabric (cottons that feel like silk-is their motto-and it does feel wonderful from my personal experience). IHAN is too lazy to cut a zillion pieces of fabric to sell to all of those fabric addicted folks that lurk on this planet....including me!!! Not only too lazy but I know that I would not sell it...I would keep it and pray Uncle Sam believed me when I told him that my tax deduction was based on the number of layers of lovely cotton insulation I had in my home.
Since we don't sell it I don't know all the names of the fabric lines. So if you love these...click on the Northcott link and I guarantee you there will be all the information you need to learn the name of the line as well as where you can find it locally or on the net.
By now you may be asking, why in the hoodly doodley did you bother stopping by the Northcott Schoolhouse if you don't sell Northcott fabric...right? Well....take a look at the gal in the next picture and you will know exactly why I was there. Who would not want to know what was making her GLOW.
Kim Deneault and she is a designer. I recall her telling me that her girlfriend had made the jacket for her (it is Northcott fabric) and the necklace too. She was absolutely radiant and if I were her....I'd sleep in the jacket too!!! (Then again, if I were her.....I'd probably just have the thing tattooed onto my skin because I'd want to look this beautiful forever)
What a happy and beautiful woman!!!

Oh, yes, Santa was to visit the Northcott Schoolhouse too. Santa? Yes, and if you think the little girl inside IHAN would miss Santa....you are just plain w r o n g .
Just outside the schoolhouse appeared none other than Mark Lipiniski. Who? Yes, Mark Lipinski. He began putting on a white beard and then it all became clear to me....Santa must be working overtime at the North pole and he had asked Mark if he could fill in for him....OK....I get it now. Sometimes these things happen and we just have to go with the flow. No one can be everywhere at one time....right? Right!!
Mark had a little, something un-Santa like on his beard and I certainly did not want to traumatize anyone....so here you can see me giving him a little Elf like help.
I'm still not certain how this photo came about. I handed my camera to an innocent by-stander and asked if they would take my pix with Santa....and then....Santa did something I did not expect......
Mark Lipinski -aka fill- in -Santa's latest line of fabric, "Chester Gardens."
Mark Lipinski- especially when he started throwing fat quarters of his latest fabric line into the crowd.
I was fortunate enough to catch one of the fat quarters and sent it to a friend. I was hoping she would get a kick out of it.
With the IHAN co-workers being out of school, I'm not as fast at posting as I'd like to be....but please stay tuned....I may have a little bit of time soon to do a few posts at one time...:) Thank you to everyone who leaves a comment. Please don't take it personally if I can't answer each one individually....it is sometimes tricky to keep all the IHAN balls in the air.....and keeping the co-workers on track.
