Your Home Makeover with Ty Pennington!

Remember the days of Trading Spaces and how you wished that the hunky carpenter, Ty Pennington, would show up at your house to makeover a room. Now you can be the home decorator and bring a little bit of Ty’s designs into your space. He has designed new home décor and quilting fabric lines with Westminster Fibers and they are now available at Pacific Fabrics!

Unlike most celebrity designers, Ty actually took a hands-on role in designing the prints and choosing the colors. Using his amazing carpentry skills, he experimented with carved wood stamps and techniques in fabric dying. The result is an impressive, contemporary group that will bring the splash of color and style that your home needs during this rainy season.

"I'm constantly finding inspiration everywhere I look... architecture, nature, travel and stories from the extraordinary people I meet."
~ Ty Pennington

This past October, Ty attended the semiannual Quiltmarket to premiere his new line and I actually got to meet him. And yes he is as sweet and as cute in person (if not more so)! It was really interesting to see the prototype pieces of fabric and wood stamps that he brought to share with all his adoring fans in the quilting world. Ty even took the time to take pictures and sign autographs for the anxious women waiting to meet him.

Ty and I at Quiltmarket!

Here are a few of the home décor pieces now available at our Bellevue, Northgate, Outlet and Puyallup stores.

We also have an amazing selection of Ty's laminated cotton and quilting cotton fabrics at these stores, except for the Outlet.

Now get decorating!

I really like wood stamps and his shapes are pretty and clear, too. Great work.
I bet you had a wonderful time together.

I'll have to check out your blog now. :)
