Sedaris took to her website to announce the “I Like You" line (named after her hosting book by the same name) by posting a photo of herself surrounded by pillows with prints such as money symbols, black and white polka dots and orange and white stripes. And the company confirmed on its Facebook page that the line will debut in January 2013, and described the collection as “eclectic.”
Sedaris told City Pages back in June that the collaboration came after she saw one of the company’s fabric designs, which had pictures of past presidents on it, but wasn’t able to find it anywhere. "I called and inquired about it and they asked me if I'd work with them to develop some new patterns. That's really been my creative project lately,” she said.
Windham Fabrics has been operating since 1955 and has since gained popularity among crafters for its unique patterns. Sedaris, who is the author of new craft book Simple Times: Crafts For Poor People, was recently on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon where she and the host made a very, umm, risqué holiday craft.
