I stumbled across this UK-based blogspot site that keeps a nice, up-to-date feed on textile patterns and prints. Most of the entries are UK artists and companies, and there is a ton of good design ideas and inspiration. They also have a bit of a job section for those interested in trying to get in the surface design field. Visit Print & Pattern.
