Calendar Work In Progress

Just a quick blog this time to reflect the time of year and what it can lead to – shopping! We now have some new products in our online shop:

Calendar Front Cover

Calendar January

Calendar Back Cover

‘Creature Comforts’ – a new calendar to keep track of 2013. The year to come is accompanied by a menagerie of colourful assorted livestock – butterflies, birds and bugs flit through the months, fishes swim, quadrupeds roam, cats curl and there’s plenty of room on the A4 pages to record and remind you of what’s to come….I wonder how many birds there are in total?

Sunflower Scarf - Fatin

Sunflower Scarf - Naomi

Naomi and Fatin show how the pure silk crepe-de-chine softly ties and generously falls to give enticing folds of sumptuous colours and joyful painting. A gorgeous present for someone special – including yourself. Take the summer garden with you everywhere.

New A5 greeting cards – blank inside for your own message at Christmas and the New Year. There are 7 new and varied designs (as well as the usual stock) and come in pairs or in a random assortment of 5.


Archive cards – these are unique cards, each one made with treasured fabrics from the Collier Campbell Archive using hand-made paper and envelopes – a special little present in itself.  As each one is different these really are sold pot-luck, but if you want to ask for ‘more red’ for instance, or ‘no flowers’, we’ll try to oblige.

Archive Cards Assortment

Never go anywhere without Shakespeare! The Sonnet Scarf is available from The National Theatre Bookshop London, both online and in person. This pure silk square is gracing some very eminent shoulders at present I’m told – your chance to be in good company. Who needs a kindle?


Sonnet Scarf packaging….

The book ‘The Collier Campbell Archive, 50 years of passion in pattern’ by Emma Shackleton (with me) is now widely available both on Amazon and in good bookshops – Waterstones, Books etc, museums and independents. Published by Ilex Press, it’s distributed by Thames and Hudson. I’m so pleased that it’s had  such a very enthusiastic reception on both sides of the Atlantic.


So be sure to visit the shop on line at www.sarahcampbelldesigns.com for all the product details and prices. PayPal is easy to use and please do contact me direct for any overseas orders, special enquiries or requests.


Normal blog service will be resumed as soon as possible. Meantime – I did enjoy a visit to the V&A recently where I saw this bottom duster at work – I think this is called the end matter!

Thanks to Alan, Molly and to the year 13 BTEC students for modelling and styling the Sunflower Scarf and Chanelle for taking the photos.
