There are not a lot of exciting things happening this week. I am starting to think about what I need to have ready for a quilt show in Elizabethtown, KY. It is the 19th and 20th, but I will leave on the 18th to go get set up. The dyeing, painting and printing class that I have been doing SO much preparation for is cancelled at the Rend Lake facility. I was so looking forward to teaching this class, but there will be another time, and I have a bunch of new cool fabrics!
I am working on a new sample. The pattern is Kimonos by Betty Blais of Embellishment Village. Most people would probably use oriental fabrics for this pattern, but I am using my hand dyed fabrics. See…
I will probably make a couple of other blocks using different fabrics. I am also planning on painting some sky fabrics to sell with patterns from the Accidental Landscapes series. And there are probably a few other small samples to make. I sell Angelina fibers and film, paintstiks and accessories, beads and beading supplies, surface design books, as well as patterns, kits and fabrics. I plan my booth to offer items for the quilter interested in trying something new and, so that it will offer items other vendors might not have. I will be demo-ing paintstiks, Angelina products, and foiling with some new glue and foiling glue pen products. I am really looking forward to this show. Last year was the first year I vended and the reception from the quilters was very good.
It is cooling off here some this morning and I am thinking about getting outside and creating some more dye painted cloth. I have some ideas I want to try.
Keep making art!
