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!

DIY : Turban Hat

The chilly Canadian winter has begun and I’m always trying to find new ways to keep warm and still look put together and stylish. I’m not a knitter (yet!) but that doesn’t mean I can’t make my own hat! I was first introduced to the turban hat trend a few years ago, and I loved […]
