I'm very excited to share some great news with you. I am grateful to be working with an amazing fabric company Clothworks for approximately 8 years.
From their website: "Clothworks is located in beautiful Seattle, Washington. We sell wholesale to the retail trade only. Look for our fabrics, with the Clothworks board-end label, in independent quilt shops all over the United States and internationally".
Working with Clothworks has been one of the best experiences in my many years of licensing my artwork. I have valued our long term relationship and always look forward to each collection we create together.
Clothworks has been sharing some of their profits for years with a great nonprofit organization "Quilts for Kids". You can read about this here.
I believe this is a wonderful organization that helps children in a unique and beautiful way. I also had the opportunity of meeting the founder Linda who I adore and she is a true inspiration to me. Please read her story. I am honored and delighted to announce that I will be donating 100% of the royalties I will earn from my Sea Shanty collection to this wonderful nonprofit organization. I'm thrilled to be partnering with them on this project.
If you are a fabric store owner and would like to purchase this collection please contact Clothworks direct.
If you are inspired and would like to help this organization click here and go to "How to Help" bottom.
If you are a consumer and are looking to purchase this fabric for your quilt projects it will be shipping to on line quilt stores and local fabric shops around March 2014.
Thank you for purchasing this fabric to help Quilts for Kids!
You have reached a blog that has "Zip", that's me Sue Zipkin. This is the place where I will share my latest design news and other hopefully interesting stuff. I am a mom, wife, friend, artist, designer,illustrator, cook, and sometimes cleaner. I have been designing artwork for products for thousands of years ( more like 2 1/2 decades ). I am blessed to be able to share my art with the world and I thank everyone who has been kind enough to purchase products with my designs on them. I hope to inspire others to pursue their dreams .

Sue Zipkin is not a manufacturer.
I am an artist who licenses reproduction rights of my art to manufacturers who then produce the art on their products. All questions or concerns about the actual product and wholesale inquires need to be directed to those manufacturers.
Creating handmade items
I encourage those creating handmade sewing projects from my fabric to sell on the web, craft shows and the like. I love handmade items. However, if you are a person planning to mass produce products using my designs (whether fabrics or incorporating any of my other artwork or products) that would require a license from me. Please contact me direct.
Thanks, Sue Zipkin
