Downton Abbey, the t.v. series is finished. But besides amassing ardent fans worldwide, did you know it has spawned a huge products industry.
Designers have been inspired by the beautiful clothing created for the show and made their own lines of fabrics. I learned of this when I saw several people using one or another Downton Abbey fabric lines for their Farmer's Wife quilt blocks.
Very elegant as one would assume. Each of the ladies have their own line.
These are a sample of Andover's offerings.
I know a lot of you will be drawn to these lilacs and purples. I love the turquoise hues too.
Or these from Bemina with suggestions for how to apply various Andover fabrics to quilting projects. The link is Bemina World of Sewing if you'd like to check it out.
Did you know you can buy Downton teas, china, wrapping paper, linens, t- shirts and on and on?
And even Mrs. Patmore's apron
And we all know who said this...
The Lady Mary teddy bear
There are teddy bears for all the characters.
World Market is where you can find many of these items. The PBS Shop also offers a huge selection of Downton items.
So if someone on your gift list is a Downton fan, you can be sure there is something Downton out there to thrill them.
