    I just ran across these tonight. Gnomes and retro travel trailers. What do you all think?

    Well... I just found the pictures online on Michael Miller's website last night, and they were interesting so I posted them.

    I just got off the phone with customer service at Michael Miller, and apparently these pictures were intended to be a "secret preview" for their overseas manufacturing clients.

    ??

    So they may, or may not, ever go to print. I did my VERY BEST to convince the customer sales rep that there would be a lot of interest in the trailer ones in particular. So now he's got to take it up to the management, to see if he can find out more about these designs.

    But... apparently the "secret preview" is not so secret after all, as the cat is out of the bag so to speak (and no, it was not because of my post!)... they are getting a lot of calls on these potential future groups. I think it's a great way for them to figure out whether a design has enough interest to be printed. They should do more of this! (But then, maybe other manufacturers would copy their designs. It's a dog-eat-dog world, I guess...)

    I will post whatever I am able to find out about this group!

    The black background fabric with the gnomes is available from Hancock of Puduca. Hope this helps.

    I vote for the first one. My daughter would love it. 1950's style, airstream and flamingos what's not to like. She doesn't like gnomes though she thinks they are creepy. I tried to talk Michael Miller fabrics into doing a Roller Derby fabric a few years back. I could have really used it. They never did though I guess they thought it wouldn't sell enough. too bad. I saw on The Quilt Show with Alex Anderson that they order 3000 yards when they place an order for a new fabric. I'll bet with all the Derby girls in the US now it would have sold out in a day. Hope they decide to print the trailer ones.
