TÉLIO Talk: Saying Goodbye!

Caroline here with some bittersweet news! After many years of selling  – and coveting – the TÉLIO line, I recently decided it was time to spread my wings and try something new. With my last day fast approaching (sad face!), I wanted to take a moment to say goodbye.

Moving from Montreal to Vancouver to open the TÉLIO showroom has brought me such joy and independence! I am excited to see what the next chapter brings. I have some fun things planned for the future, and you better believe they will be fabric, fashion, and sewing related!  I will be continuing to blog over at Sewaholic (because I am one!), and you can follow me on Instagram for exciting updates to come.

What a privilege it had been to work with gorgeous fabrics and fantastic clients every day! Most of all, I am sad to say goodbye to the amazing TÉLIO team that I have been lucky to work with over the past 5 years. We are blessed to have some incredibly creative and talented people working for this company. Working on the Textures blog was only the icing on the cake.

Keep in touch!

Entertaining season is upon us, and what better way to freshen up your table than with some new napkins? I’m a big fan of using cloth napkins. They can dress up any dinner party, they are larger and more absorbent than your typical paper napkin, plus they are washable, so less waste! Win! For this […]
