Next up, the American Craft Council’s annual show in Baltimore. It was postponed from the original February dates and rescheduled for May 20-22. It’s coming up in just a few days! I’ve been running up the down escalator to be ready in time.
It’s pretty much the same show it’s always been but with a brand new name, American Craft Made/ Baltimore. They’ve added in an online component so if you can’t make it to the show, you’ll still be able to see the work of many of the artists exhibiting. The online show runs for two weeks. It will start Monday, May 16 and will be up through the 29th.
My inventory was down a bit after the Smithsonian show and I needed new work to bring to Baltimore, like these ‘hitoes,’ finished and ready to go.
A new jacket, almost finished, sewn from a very cool old kimono. There are only buttons and the last bits of lining to sew in place.
And lastly, a new jacket, still in the process of being cut out. It’s from an amazing, vintage kimono. Just a few days to sew it up, but if I focus, it will be finished, packed and on it’s way with me to Baltimore.
Two shows in less than a month, not my normal, not even before covid. But I am game and ready to go!
I am so looking forward to the Baltimore show! This was my last show before lockdown. It’s been 2 plus years and I am ready to be back.
