The Fabric Maverick says: Who is Mark Lipinski - The Man behind the fabric

November 6, 2008

Before Mark saw the light, he was the Senior Producer for The View and Ricki Lake. He has also worked on The Joan Rivers Show and The Richard Bey Show. He has made a transition to the world of quilting and brought along a sense of humor.

He believes in preserving quilting, but he is not a member of the Quilt Police. He believes that you should have fun and learn to break some rules. You do not need to commit suicide if your points are not always sharp. I read his magazine, Quilter's Home, for the humor that it brings me. His magazine is a giggle wrapped in paper! You can get too serious in life and miss smelling the roses. After all, if you live on Pickle Road how serious can you be?  Set aside some time, grab a cup of coffee, put up your feet and prepare to laugh out loud when you read his magazine.

Califon is Mark's newest line of fabric from Northcott. Califon is the name of the town in New Jersey in which he currently lives. There are two color ways- blue and yellow, black and white. He says he was inspired by the flowers and gardens in his area. I, personally, see a spirograph gone wild. I love the bold graphic designs. For some free downloads go to Mark Lipinski's website. 

Have fun with this beautiful fabric. Mark has a new collection, Krakow, which will be available in early 2009. This is inspired by Polish pottery. You can see a preview at Mark's website.
