Penni Domikis – Fabric 411
Did you ever wonder about the fabrics we all love? How are they made? Where does the process begin? We all know our favorite fabrics are created from cotton but what exactly is the process from the factory to the shop? How does a company pick designs and how long does it take to get fabrics from design to print to market? What is the difference between a wet print process and a digital design? Is there really a difference in the base cotton? If you have ever wondered any of those things… take a journey with me to discover things you may not know about what goes on behind the scenes. As part of the corporate team with Michael Miller Fabrics, I have learned so much about the process and I would love to share some of this knowledge with you.
