Linda Taylor, President and Design Director
I hold a Bachelor of Science from Philadelphia University, previously known as Philadelphia College of Textiles and Sciences. After college, I went directly to work at Hoffman Mills where I worked for 11 years as a senior textile designer. This gave me comprehensive experience with all aspects of jacquard woven fabrics. While at Hoffman Mills, I designed woven and transfer printed goods for drapery, bedding, upholstery, apparel, and vertical blinds. My area of expertise was working closely with manufacturers and utilizing current fashion trends to develop exciting new fabrics and constructions for bedding and window lines. Many of the fabrics that I created were known to be consistently innovative, and many successfully retailed in stores for large manufacturers. I possess advanced technical mastery of the JacqCAD program; DMT Studio's preferred design card-cutting software. I love challenges, and owning and operating DMT Studio will be my biggest challenge yet.

Team Bios

Chris Mcdonel, Artistic Director
I hold a BA in Creative Arts from Wilson College. I have loved creating art since the age of six when I took my first art lesson. After college, I was an antiques dealer, and I also worked in the retail industry in both sales and merchandising. I continued to utilize my merchandising skills after coming to Hoffman Mills as the merchandise manager and international trade show coordinator. I also provided professional copy-writing services such as fabric descriptions for sales presentations, trade shows, and industry publications. As a studio artist, I gained extensive experience in the creation and layout of jacquard designs, both in the painted medium, and computer generated image techniques. Customers worked with me to create original custom textiles from concept to woven fabric, with specialties in apparel and tapestry. I am looking forward to working in conjunction with Linda to create an exciting new design resource for the textile industry.
