Arts & Crafts Autumn Show....

I was a vendor at a local Arts & Crafts show this past weekend. The weather turned out wonderful, sunny with a cooler breeze. The show coordinated with an antique tractor show so brought in lots of shoppers. My dear mom came down to help me - I couldn't have done it without her. I had good sales and some custom orders so it was a success!!

A little about my textile art.....

My vintage fabric collages combine my love of vintage textiles and my love of words. Words are powerful and a beautiful phrase can evoke such emotion. My collage designs are built around the wise words of an old poet or author, which I handstitch in a simple lettering. I use vintage fabrics, laces, buttons, etc...all handstitched in a unique way to mirror the words - there is always a little mystery with the finished product, but if you look closely you will see the simple beauty of the words reflected in the design. I collect old vintage frames throughout the year to frame each collage in. Below is a sampling of some of my pieces....
