Some milestones we have witnessed are:
- The offering of printed organic fabrics to small businesses and home sewers that are not just cast offs from large production runs by big companies.
- The development of the Global Organic Textile Standards. (GOTS)
- The explosion of organic quilting fabrics onto the scene.
- The GOTS logo and web site becoming used and understood by the fabric community.
Harmony Art has developed over 60 different organic cotton fabrics. We have assisted over 200 companies in finding organic cotton fabrics to fit their needs. Harmony has given over 20 lectures on organic cotton and her journey in creating Harmony Art. We followed the organic fiber certification process and are fully GOTS certified. We've made friends. We've watched businesses come, go, flourish and flounder. We've seen births, deaths, anniversary, marriages and a plethora of personal experiences and challenges. As this blog is titled: The Journey is the Prize. Thank you for being on the journey with me.
PS On a personal note today is also my friend Mary Sue's birthday. She and her husband's belief in my vision of Harmony Art helped spur my leap of faith. Her love and support over the last 10 years can not be understated. THANK YOU MARY SUE!
