It’s “feel good moments” like this that make me smile and regain faith in our community, especially when the person we are talking about is my husband, Neil Breslau. I was also honored that one of our very own at Design Works International, Jim Simon took it upon himself to write a blog about the Libertad Urban Farm and Neil’s involvement in helping Tanya restore the farm after a thief took off with her produce that was ready to harvest and stole all her tools and destroyed the farm during this terrible experience. We like to say out of bad comes good and this story is a perfect example of just that….enjoy the read and video. We are all proud at Design Works International and hope that you will be as well…

I’ve long believed the world can be a difficult place and I’ve begun to think that as a society we seem to focus on the negative rather than positive. This is a nice story about some go…

Hashtags & How to Use Them

Featured

“Use of a word or phrase preceded by a hash or pound sign (#)to identify messages on a specific topic” is the definition of a hashtag given if you search online. The concept is simple, in fact so simple, sometimes it’s confusing. Just think about what YOU might search for when adding hashtags and simply put the “#” in front of it.

Here are a couple “broad” hashtags. #home #art #textiles. And a few “refined” hashtags. #modernlivingroom #streetart #digitalprintedtextiles. Finally, some specific hashtags. #hgtvhome #keitharing #first2print

As you can see the hashtags all fit within three basic areas, but guide the search to different things. Specific hashtags would be for companies, people, subjects, etc. that people are aware of and would have an audience already. Refined hashtags will help people who are trying to find something a bit more direct. Broad hashtags will give you the largest number of results.

Sample

This beautiful image is an excellent example as it could be tagged with many things; #tile #ethnic #brightcolor #handbpainted #inspiration #quilt #geometric, so this example would be found by lots of searchers. We could then get specific by tagging things like #designworksintl #first2print #fabricdesign #textileinspiration.

So make sure you tag your photos so the right people find them in places like Facebook, Twitter & Instagram. You can even add our “#designworksintl” hashtag to your images and we could see your images!

TBT – The Marie Antoinette Room in The Metropolitan Museum of Art

Thank goodness they liked our work, or they may have taken off our heads!!

In 2007 the Museum came to us to help them with refurbishing Marie Antoinette’s furniture. Detailed patterns were done here and full size printouts were made for every piece to be embroidered from.

TBT – We are not the king… but we know one!

When the drapes in Elvis’ Jungle Room needed to be replaced, Graceland came to us.

The pattern was recreated by Design Works International and the fabric was printed by First2Print.

If you happen to be in Memphis and stop by to see Graceland, take a selfie in the Jungle room and send it to us!!
