Artisan Studio Tour

The Studio Tour is coming up soon - on Saturday & Sunday next weekend!  Go back to my Sept. 25 post, check my Facebook page, or follow my Twitter feed for updates all week.  Our stop, #4 on the tour, will have 6 artists including my friends and fellow Sheridan grads Noelle Hamlyn (textile artist), and Emma Gerard (glass and jewellery artist).

Work in Progress

I am working on new clutches, intending to have them ready for the Studio Tour in a couple of weeks.  I listed one on Etsy the other day, rainbow stripes on a white background.  It seemed to make sense to have a rainbow on white one, as I'd already made some rainbow on black. 

I am also re-working the scarves, I think they work better opened up, rather than sewn in the round as 'tubes'. 

Lastly, I have been using up my accumulated small scraps of silk that I can't use in the clutches/butterflies, i started free-motion stitching them down onto a tear-away stabilizer, intending to use the results as bookmarks and on cards, but I like it so much, I've cut a couple of larger pieces from it, and will be making 'patchwork' clutches from those pieces, and using the rest as originally planned.

Port Credit Emporium

Tonight from 7-10pm is Port Credit Emporium's 1st year party.  The theme is Mad Men, I'll be there with my silk clutches, and it sounds like there will be a lot going on.
