Zoe Glencross Fabric & Home sells printed natural linen fabric for curtains, blinds, soft furnishings and upholstery.  Beginning life as a home grown 'kitchen-table' craft Zoe uses her hand-sketched, block and screen printed designs to create her collections.

The Meadowlands Collection features rural imagery with a contemporary abstract twist, using print to reflect the texture, movement and light of England's rural landscape.   Inspired by the meadows of Cheshire and rugged North Devon coast.

It's been an amazing year of creativity, challenges, inspiration and determination.  Life has definitely been full.  I am delighted to be launching Zoe Glencross Fabric & Home.   Whilst it has been a sole venture I could never have done it alone and have been incredibly lucky to have had a wealth of supportive people around me.  I'd like to thank all those who helped me along the way with their endless talents and enthusiasm...

The Plush upholstery team headed up by Andrea for her energy, drive andsound advice.   The great skills of Alice and Charlie must be noted- no sewing task is too small, large or complex!  Thank you to Jan Gamble with her brilliant photographic and styling skills and to Sally W for her sound business advice and positivity.  Thank you to Mum for sewing and Dad for helping out on that very hot photo-shoot day.  Also thanks to the lovely focus groups who helped evaluate my designs.

...on September for a moment and I've realised how far we've come.

As always in interiors, September is a very busy month.  Combine that with the 'back to school' mahem and add on a few special occasions to celebrate, and it's easy to be left a bit burnt out by the end.  However I'm feeling totally enthused and inspired..

We made our debut at Decorex International, exhibiting to the UK and International trade.    Our fabrics were so well received and the comments and enthusiasm for the brand were at times overwhelming.  We've been inundated with enquiries and requests ever since so we are loving the momentum!  We felt privileged to be able to exhibit alongside top international brands.  It was also great to meet many of the other fabric designers and compare experiences, as well as watch some inspiring interviews in the seminar room with incredible interior designers such as Turner Pocock.

As a visitor to Decorex for the previous 3 years I hadn't quite imagined being able to be part of the show.  A few months ago I was lucky enough to find the super talented Caroline, who has a never ending supply of initiative and positivity!   Caroline joined me at the show and is now very much a fundamental part of the business for which I am thankful!   I was also joined on the stand by an ex-colleague, Lucy, from my old M&S Buying days.  Without such great help I would never have been able to exhibit so THANK YOU!!  P.S - No we didn't spend our entire time drinking champagne like the photos might suggest! :-)

Alongside this I'm working on an exciting new design collaboration for Spring 2018 with a great furniture company - look out for our blog posts when it launches! 

With the help of the lovely Matt Preistley we launched our short film which gives you a flavour of how a design begins life - available to watch here at the bottom of the page. 

I've also been busy designing a new collection for Spring 2018 which I'm really excited about.    In recent weeks I've been luck enough to explore some beautiful locations for my spring shoot which for me is the best bit of this job!  Once again however my family are in despair as every day they come home to a kitchen covered in bits of fabric, sketches and photographs as I busily plan colours and photography.    I tell them 'it's a creative process' :-))
