Lotta Fabrics, Inspiration, and Surface Printing Workshops

Lotta Jansdotter is the label for Lotta Anderson’s amazing fabric designs and creations.  “Dotter” means daughter and “Jan” is the name of Lotta’s father.  Lotta grew up in Åland, an island between Sweden and Finland, which has been a great source of inspiration for her Scandanavian designs.

Lotta Fabrics

There is a small selection of wonderful, modern fabrics at Lotta Jansdotter.  The fabrics are screen-printed on 100% linen.  Linen fabric is made from flax fiber which is naturally grown without the use of harmful pesticides.  Fabrics are sold by the half yard for $22.  There are also linen remnant bags available with 4-5 remnant pieces each featuring a different design.  Both the fabric yardage and remnant bags would be prefect for small sewing projects (try making your own fabric cuffs).  Just look at Lotta’s bags and home accessories for inspiration.

More Inspiration from Lotta

For even more inpsiration try one of Lotta’s books.  Simple Sewing features a variety of sewing projects for around the house.  Lotta Prints shows you how to do everything from printing with potatoes to screen-printing your own fabric.  Each of the books includes patterns and templates for the designs featured in the book.

Learn From The Master Herself

If you are in the New York area, Lotta offers surface printing workshops in her Brooklyn Studio.  There are two classes upcoming in March and one in May.  Spend an afternoon with Lotta and learn various surface printing methods.  Classes are $230 for 12pm-4pm and are limited to 10 students.
