This coming weekend is Everett's annual Fresh Paint Festival. 90 artists will be demonstrating their what they do and selling the results fresh off the easel - or the sewing machine, in my case. The event runs right along the marina. Last year was such fun! I brought my little Singer and heard people on the boardwalk saying, "I hear a sewing machine!" People don't quite believe I do all of the stitching freehand - no computer program - unless I use the Singer. It was made in Scotland in 1956. I have another of the same era that my grandmother where my grandmother stitched clothes, linens, even canvas tents! I still use that, too. Especially a couple of years ago when my modern machines were both in the shop and I had deadlines!
I will have new work for the walls, handbags, journals, scarves and more. I'm trying out a couple of new things that I'll blog about in the next few days. If you'll be in the area, come find me in Booth #45.
