The Rivendale Collection: Meet Sally Giblin


Today on The Shabby we are so excited to introduce you to Sally Giblin, the talented designer behind The Rivendale Collection! Sally's patterns are all so lovely and we can't wait to show you her newest designs!

First, let's meet the designer!
Sally Giblin, an Australian designer, established The Rivendale Collection 15 years ago and hasn't stopped creating gorgeous patterns ever since. Her focus is mainly on stitchery and applique and her distinctive style has set her apart in the industry. She says her inspiration for the collection can come from a variety of sources from "a pretty floral fabric or even a beautiful verse". It is easy to see that Sally invests herself wholly into her designs saying "I have a passion for verses which I use liberally in my stitcheries. With a few chosen words we can convey so much." She goes on to say "One of the most important considerations during the designing process is the needs of my fellow stitchers and that means making achievable designs with easy to follow instructions." We can definitely say that she delivers on the promise of easy to follow instructions!
Another hallmark of her designs are the little details and embellishments. She, like many of us, loves "to be surrounded by beautiful things" and is "an avid collector of anything old" and that isn't hard to gather from her gorgeous designs featuring vintage sewing machines, scissors, and little quilt shops! Besides creating patterns, Sally enjoys restoring old furniture, gardening, and looking for her next old find. The Rivendale Collection has a wide reach, being sold in over 500 stores worldwide, including Our Shop!
We are so happy to have Sally as a featured designer here on The Shabby and proud to carry The Rivendale Collection at Shabby Fabrics!
