Rishfeld Designs

The Rishfeld Trunk show arrived today. Beautiful designs with wonderful colors and 
tradition. You may know the line by its name but here is the story behind the designs.

Pamela Rishfeld has always been involved in the arts. Born and raised in the artistic environment of New York City, she lived there until the summer of 1984 when she and her husband, George, moved to southern California.

While growing up in Queens she began to get interested in art, design and fabric. Her first recollection of doing needlework was a very large cross-stitched tablecloth that she and
 her sister Linda worked on together.  (She
 can't remember it ever being finished.) When
she was about seven, she sat down at the sewing machine and with a pattern that she
had cut out of a piece of newspaper, made a bathing suit.  To every one's surprise, it fit.  Her connection with textiles was made and hasn't been broken since.

After high school Pamela went to the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City, and earned a degree in textile design.  She had many roles in the textile industry over the years: Artist, Assistant Stylist, Stylist, Free-lance Designer, Assistant Director of Textiles and Production Weaving Assistant. 
 At the same time she continued to study textiles with major fiber artists.

Over the years Pamela has been in many art shows, quilt shows, and needlework shows around the country and has won several awards. As well as having her work published in several books and magazines.  She was also the featured guest on the TV show Simply Quilts with Alex Anderson, a show that continues to run every year.
Upon arriving in California Pamela realized there was a need for fine Judaic kits and patterns,
 so she created Rishfeld Designs as a way to market her designs.  After working for JB Designs for many years Pamela decided to go entirely out on her own.  Along with her husband George, they expanded Rishfeld Designs to incorporate hand painted
 needlepoint designs (which has become their main focus) and started to represent many other artists along with Pamela’s work.

The company is now located in Cumming, Georgia, a suburb of Atlanta, so they can be near their children and grandchildren.
