Schacktoberfest is next weekend! ( This is the Schack Art Center's fall festival. The hot shop is making 300 glass pumpkins for the Urban Pumpkin Patch. You can go see them for free and, for $45, you can design, make and take home your very own pumpkin.
There is also a 3 day exhibit of fall themed art work. Six of my pieces will be hanging in the gallery. This is an image of
Northside. Three layers of free motion lace, separated by cotton and batting spacers, with lace leaves drifting on each layer. The background is cotton quilted with curved lines and more leaves.
The leaves are falling and the apples are ready!

New outlets

In the last couple of months, I've joined two more stores, and, a couple of weeks ago, juried into an online wholesale company.
The Schack Art Center, in Everett, WA, has a beautiful new space, including hot shop (for blowing glass), gallery space and retail gift store. Coming up is "Schack-toberfest", an evening with art, music, beer & brats, with an urban pumpkin patch of glass pumpkins to purchase. I'm hoping to have some pieces on display.
I met the Kellys of Riverclay in Mount Vernon, during the Skagit Artist Together Studio tour this summer. They have created a welcoming gallery in downton MV, mostly pottery - and now, some of my work. is a wholesale company, meaning artists sell the work directly to the retailer. I'm brand new to the process, but I'm hopeful that this will expand my base.
Back to sewing!
