|This is Rian's shop logo|
The group is largely European, so I have to suffer through seeing all the lovely Tilda fabrics, papers, stickers and various other products I can't get easily.
The girls of the cafe are friendly, supportive and fun. Their personalities just sparkle through their posts and the lovely photos they put up on the page.
One of the cafe girls, Rian, lives in Holland. She also recently launched a web shop entirely devoted to Tilda. The site is in Dutch and English, and Rian is willing and ready to help with any language challenges. I think I have finally found a place to get my little Tilda crowns.
Just recently, Rian shared with us that the new winter line has been launched, and she's placed an order for all sorts of products from it.
There is also a new Tilda book!
This means that the English version won't be available to pre-order until late July or mid-August. The quick screen shots Rian shared with us in the cafe were inspiring. There are lovely cream/burgundy floral prints, along with some fun wintry projects. The angel on the front cover of the book is tucked up in a bed with a lovely eiderdown. I might have to make her, and then try to explain to my nearest and dearest about why I seem to be playing with dolls all of a sudden.
I know, it is sort of weird to be so attached the work of one designer, but I think the whole Tilda esthetic speaks to me on some sort of elemental level. In short, Tilda makes me happy.
And now, I have a new book to look forward to, as well as a source for the supplies. I promise to keep my fellow English-speaking Tilda fans posted about when the new Tilda Winter book is available for pre-order. Watch this space!
