When our fabric sales rep and his guest, national sales manager for South Sea Imports / Wilmington Prints, stopped by this week, I told them that I would love it if the fabric companies came out with more religious-themed fabrics.
The sales manager's thought was that it might be "too risky": a limited market, possibly not what a secular society would want.
I suggested that they could do motifs from a variety of religions, and could address hard-to-find holidays too. He'd already gotten a request for Pilgrims for Thanksgiving, and I was thinking of how hard it is to find Easter fabric that with a religious theme rather than just bunnies and eggs.
Do you think there would be a market for this? Where could it be used?
I immediately thought of all the church nurseries that I've seen, and the cute curtains that could be made for their windows. Also keepsake quilts to be given when a baby is baptized.
