I met textile designer Kim Andersson at The Makerie Retreat a few months ago and am thrilled to be able to introduce you to her today. Australian born, Kim began as a graphic designer but has only recently rekindled her passion for pattern, textile, and surface design through fabric.

The best part about Kim’s collections are that each one tells a story. Her newest collection, “Tidal Lace,” is inspired by the blending of two experiences: one from her childhood and one not so long ago. “Tidal Lace is my imagining of lace and the tide pools woven together, full of fascinating details and bursting with color and life,” Kim explains.

The first experience is a memory from her grandmother’s ballet shop where she played for hours, completely enthralled by the pattern and detail in the lace and trim she’d find there. Her inspiration for incorporating the tide pool component  stemmed from a family trip to a coastal town near her home in California.

“Waking up early for the low tide and still quite sleepy,” Kim remembers, “we were greeted by the wonder of the tide pools. We spent a wonderful morning with friends and family looking from pool to pool to see what we could spy. One person pointing out what another might have otherwise missed.” Gorgeous! Listen to Kim yourself on the Modern Sewciety podcast here.

The Tidal Lace collection will be available in fabric stores in January, but you can check out all the Tidal Lace patterns here along with the look book here. There will also be a free quilt pattern, along with her star shaped pillow and pin cushion patterns available with the release of the collection.
