I'm Back!

I was visiting my husband Billy in California (he’s stationed there for the military, but not for much longer now!).  It was a great time, and awesome to see him.  I also got to go fabric hunting in the L.A. Fashion District.  90 fabric stores in 4 blocks.  Yes, you heard right. Wowie.  But this past week, I’ve been preparing for two shows, and a fashion show!  Hence, the lack of site updates.

Movement 2009.  May 23-25  Detroit, MI. I’ll be joining Handmade Detroit there this weekend with some select items, in a huge 20×20 tent right by the entrance.  I changed my fabric up a bit for this event, expect lots of neon and black.

Maple Days Art Festival.  May 25, 9am-4pm  Walled Lake, MI.  I’ll have my own tent set up here, with a full stock of clothing.  This is also where my fashion show is going to be.  Come and check it out!


Next Show - Flint City Handmade Spring Market

This is where I’ll be tomorrow, in the Lunch Studio.  Three buildings of lovely handmade goods.   I have an item in the raffle, one of my Michigan-themed shower curtains.  Hopefully I’ll see you there!

Craft Revival 2009 Recap

Handmade Detroit’s Craft Revival was great!  They gave me a big open space, I had a lot of room to spread out.  I even got two clothesracks in there!  It was a little dimly lit, and you can’t see it in the picture, but it gave this dramatic glow to my display.  I had people comment that it felt like a fortune teller’s booth or a seance, haha.  But that was okay.  One of the reasons I really like doing these shows, aside from the sales and the compliments, is talking with customers and other vendors.   I like getting direct feedback from the customers, and the vendors are usually really nice and it’s fun swapping stories.  My mom was my booth helper, and after the show, we went downstairs to eat at the Majestic Cafe.  I liked the contrast of the many memories of late night shows and shenanigans at the Magic Stick, and then eating downstairs with my mom.  The food was super terrific.  I hope they decide to do this show again next year, I really enjoyed it.
