New Projects

I have just finished up some projects for class proposals and for Fibers in Motion. They are my version of Inspirational Fabric Collage. I am trying to use up fabric, beads, 3-D scrapbook "goodies" and all this other stuff I have been collecting for years because my studio is bulging at the seams...yes pun intended! I truely love what I am making and can't wait to make more. I am going to stay with small items like purses and wall hangings. The budda is a work in progress and a sewing machine cover I started in my class to show my students. After going to the bead show I found some great stuff to sew on for embellishments.
If you are interested in taking my Fabric collage class, I will be teaching that at Fibers In Motion On January 26, 2008 here in Portland. www.fibersinmotion.com for more detials.

ArtFiber Fest 2007

Well, I am settled back at home and looking at my pictures...there are too many to post! I had a great class! Thanks to all my students who did a great job on their creations and made me laugh about them...even the unauthorized ones. (Dilda, you know who you are!) We had great weather up at the Fort and a really fun group. My fabric dyeing class with Denise Warner was so colorful and fun...I finally got the dye off my hands yesterday. My fabric journal is beautiful from Pam Garrisons class. Every ones was so pretty. Looking forward to next year!
