Kimberly Kight has collected and worked with vintage textiles for more than a decade. She is particularly drawn to designs of the 1950s-60s. Say hello to the Rotary Club collection, which was inspired by people's budding relationship with communication technologies in the Sputnik Era. The cute patterned selvedge (which you can incorporate into your projects) reads "remember the analog."
The "hero" print, "Hello, Yes, This is Bird" has birds using various old technologies -- record players, cathode-ray TVs, and manual typewriters -- as they gossip with each other on their rotary phones.
Getting nostalgic for rotary phones, Kimberly started to think about the ways she and her childhood friends used the phone, calling dial-a-joke lines, services that recited the time and weather, and radio station request lines over and over again. She incorporated some of these old numbers into the “Dials” print, along with era-appropriate names.
Rotary Club is rounded out by the versatile “Ring Rings” (circle print). This print was inspired by an old doll dress.
This bundle includes all 6 prints in the pink/red color way, as shown in the photos. If you like this, check out separate listings for the blue/red/white, blue/green, and full collection bundles. Rotary Club is OUT OF PRINT so grab it while you can! I only have a little bit left.
