    Robert Kaufman is going to have a small group of fabrics based on the character Maxine.

    What do you think? Did Kaufman make a smart business decision? Does Maxine have enough appeal that they'll turn a profit? Or should they have invested in someone... shall we say, more cheerful?

    Here she comes:

    Personally I am not big on sarcasm (I grew up with far too much of it) but I know many others find her quite funny.

    Kind of cute, but what would you use them for? I know.....make postcards out of them.

    maxine is a funny character, but her appeal is limited, imo. if she was a brand-new character it would be more appealing. but she's old news. also, the offset panels make that fabric hard to use. what would you use it for if you were doing something with it?

    I like her, but don't think I would use the fabric.

    See? That's just why I like to post pictures here! Just 'cause the fabric makers come out with something *really different* doesn't necessarily mean that it's a good idea, or that it will sell.

    Ok, here's an idea. A pillowcase, to bring sweet dreams. For someone you... really like.

    Oops. Sorry, Marjpf! That was more sarcasm, wasn't it? :wink:

    I am a great grandmother and I LOVE Maxine. I may think it, but Maxine doesn't care who knows what she is thinking! Sour lemons are not my way, but I can appreciate the sentiment!
    I'm sure I will do a few wall hangings from that fabric!!

    Robert Kaufman certainly doesn't need my money...but, he'll be getting a bunch of it when this becomes available! Maxine is probably TOO REAL for most...but for some, she's got it all goin' on! I can't wait to sew up some totes and decorate a shirt or two!
