Starting Monday, September 20th, the Craft Council’s on-line Atlanta/SE show will be live and open for members. If you’re not a member, please consider becoming one. It’s a great way to help support American craft.
On the next day, Tuesday, September 21, the show will open to all.
Below, my newest pieced coat on a beautiful model. I’ve paired it with my meisen striped skirt. The coat, called ‘All the Irregulars,’ [because, the irregular navy and white pieces of silk] will in the show. The skirt is now up in my web-shop.
A cape with appliqués will also be in the show. Worn loose and soft or pulled tight over and around your shoulders. Capes are the best! Perfect for all!
A brand new ‘Hitoe’ in an amazing black and white shibori. Each one of those little dots are tie-dyed.
Paired with a fabric with abstracted leaves for the collar and black sleeves with a woven tree design.
I’ve been busy piecing new scarves too. Like this one with cranes in beautiful forest-y greens.
The great thing about scarves, one size really and truly does fit all.
A bold red and black with oh so cool traditional Japanese designs.
The silks I use in my scarves are either from old kimonos that don’t have enough usable fabric for a whole jacket, but have spectacular bits that I can use in my scarves or they are leftover scraps from other projects. ‘Mottainai,’ waste nothing. And with these gorgeous fabrics, I absolutely will not.
We’re limited to 15 pieces, so as things sell I’ll add in new. Be sure and come back to see what’s new.
