Tomorrow (Sunday) is the Sisters Outdoor Quilt Show Fiber Arts Stroll. I will be there to demonstrate watercolor techniques on fabric, which is how I did the fabric postcard above. I'll be in front of Melvin's Fir Street Market from 12-4pm.
I'll also have for sale many of the items I sell in my Etsy store, including hand dyed fabric Inspiration Packs, greeting cards and small art pieces. Hope to see you there!
A quick post just to show you all some of the photos I used for my latest MOO order. The first group are photos I used on blank greeting cards.
This time I also got some postcards made and will sell them in sets of 4 patchwork cats. These are really fun!
I am totally swamped with last minute stuff related to the upcoming Fiber Arts Stroll on Sunday and other things in general. Such a heady time! I also realized that I took all my quilts to the quilt show office and forgot to get photos of the two most recent ones before I took them in! I hate when I forget the photos. So, that will have to be a post for another day.
At the Fiber Art Stroll I will be demonstrating my process for using vintage linens in textile art. I will also have greeting cards, postcards, hand dyed fabric inspiration packs, hand stitched ornaments and a few original fiber art pieces for sale. If you are able to stop by on Sunday I will be on the shady porch in front of The Culver House, just to the right of the Stitchin' Post. I look forward to seeing you!
If you see a design you would like to buy before I can get them up on Etsy, you can email me or leave a comment. We should be able to work something out. Greeting cards are $4 each, postcards sets are $6 each, plus shipping. Thanks!
**Edited to add: I learned to do the cats in a class with Jude HIll. She considers them her own design. I will not be selling cards with the cats anymore.**
I finally got my greeting cards set up for sale in my Etsy shop! The cards are created with high resolution images and printed on high quality greeting card stock by Moo.com. I've used Moo for several types of items in the past year and really like their quality. These are nice, heavy card stock and they come with white envelopes. The card size is 4" x 5.75". The inside is blank, but the back of the card is printed with my name, shop name and website. I'm really excited to have these in the shop as a low cost way to share my art. I have 11 designs in the shop now, but when they start to run low I plan to make a new order with some other designs. One of the many fabulous reasons to use Moo.com is that you can upload as many different images for one order of cards as you want. Enjoy!
The Around the Block Fiber Arts Stroll is tomorrow and I'm a participating artist! I will be behind the Hen's Tooth in downtown Sisters tomorrow, Sunday, July 8, 12-4pm. This is my first time having a booth there or anywhere. I will be demonstrating some hand stitching techniques that I've learned from Jude Hill (with her permission). I also will be selling some goodies, including the two art pieces here (and four others),
Under the African Sun
hand dyed fabric packs,
and greeting cards I had made with my photographs (from moo.com).
It's been a lot of work to get ready, so I hope it goes well. If you are attending the Fiber Arts Stroll, stop on by and say hi!
