I'm sad to see a favorite shop close, but it's nice to have a chance to buy some special fabrics at a discount. If you know the work of American artist and illustrator Bessie Pease Gutmann, you may recognize the figures on this beautifully soft fabric. The artist lived from 1876 to 1960, and her original paintings are extremely rare. However, prints of her works are readily available. I plan to use this fabric for making my Mini Beaded Spirit Pillows, and I hope to add them to my Etsy shop.
