    Thanks for your support. Wow, I was overwhelmed to see this mentioned here.

    It is so obvious this is her work being ILLEGALLY copied. All the lawyers are doing is making themselves look like a bunch of horses backsides well that and stalling the inevitable. Sometimes facing up to your mistakes is easier and cheaper than trying to play out the deception.

    That is such a blatant copy of Kimberly’s work. I hate to see things like this happen to designers, I hope she gets justice.

    As a frequent shopper of Kimberly Shaw items AND aa avid quilter I am appalled that a reputable fabric manufacturer would be involved in such a blatant theft of art work. I certainly thought Fabri-Quilt was above this and isn’t it time for the lawyers to step up to ethical and honest behavior!

    Really, is this proper language for a professional site?
    “and tells a despicable tale of lawyers and piss-poor treatment”
    It makes YOU look pretty bad.

    Also…This IS very obvious it is illegally copied.
    I stumbled on this site and I am stumbling out.

    Greeting Card designer files copyright infringement lawsuit against Fabri-Quilt, Inc. a major fabric manufacturer located in Kansas City, MO. Kimberly Shaw filed the suit after discovering 4 of her designs printed on Fabri-Quilt’s “Victoria’s Tea Room” fabric line which has been sold and distributed worldwide.

    Filed at California Southern District Federal Court in San Diego, December 18, 2009. Case # 3:2009cv02844

    Sounds like a case of a large corporation thinking a smaller company will not have the means to take them on. How the negative publicity from this story could cost them more in the long run than settling the claim that is blatently a copyright infringement.

    So keep spreading the word and help Kimberley get the result she deserves

    Kimberly,
    Is this garbage still going on? How is your lawsuit progressing?
    Many of us are standing behind you on this. In our local quilt guild we have all been boycotting Fabri-quilt fabrics. We have all let our friends know about what they have done.

    Cheryl, This matter is still unresolved, unfortunately to the hurt of Fabri-Quilt themselves from what you are saying. Thanks for asking and thanks for your very kind support.
