Making a Holiday

Minnetonka Center for the Arts – Arts of the Holiday Sale and Show

Lots of hard (and FUN) making this fall — to sell my cork/cotton/upcycled purses at TWO holiday art shows and sales — is making this holiday season and joyful and creative one. I am participating in the Minnetonka Art Centers Arts of the Holidays Show & Sale and the Textile Center’s Holiday Gallery Shop – two completely new experiences.

Maker Momentum

Not yet ready for prime time (as in selling), but I am gathering momentum. Creating new designs; buying interfacing and fusible fleece by the bolt, cork by the meter and yard, zippers by the yard, hardware by the handful; submitting the best to contests; sewing three or four bags at a time; signing up for craft shows and submitting for holiday gallery sales.
