This is exciting! The fabric that we wove for Greg LaVoi for his fall collection was used in a Season 6 episode of Castle. I happen to watch the episode on Netflix and was pretty sure I saw it on a woman – Dr. Greg confirmed it. Its a fantastic suit and very recognizable!

Working on a few interesting projects…

Here's a soldier on a figured Venetian carpet. Hard to find good references!

Working on a few interesting projects. Maybe a new film on King Arthur and getting ready for our Open House which starts in less than one month! If you have been watching the HBO series “Turn” about Washington’s spies in the revolution you’ll see some of Thistle Hill’s fabrics. We may also be doing a remake of the Lincoln shawl, now there’s a story!

An Oneida Indian Blanket for “Turn: Washington’s Spies”

reblanket

Working with the best! Donna Zakowska, costume designer for “Turn” (also known as “Washington’s Spies”) HBO filming in Richmond VA. Second season.

This is an Oneida Indian Blanket in mixed red wools and a black and white band at each end. We made extra this time! The design is from the portrait. Pretty cool to be able to do good reproductions without compromise!. Thanks Donna for your support!
