Thanks again as always for offering such a great blog. My business is going strong thanks to your advice and great book. I have a question I was hoping you or one of your writers could help answer.
What is the best way to set up a fabric library, and is there any software or established systems out there to help do it? The problem is a racks and racks of headers, and the solution would offer the best way to organize them, and look them up easily. Possibly a relational database that could be accessed by designers searching for the right fabric for their design, and also by production to check that the fabric is approved etc. might be a starting point. How do the big guys solve this problem…
Personally, I have no idea. Do you know or have any ideas?
