I love old buildings especially from the Deco era. These amazing paintings-not photographs are from hyper realist artist Davis Cone.
The old theaters are so beautiful.
I have been involved in several new quilting/fabric projects lately. Met with textile designer Alison Glass talking about designing fabric and Quilt Market, she was most helpful and I hope a new friend in the art community. Our Peninsula Modern Quilt Guild is planning a quilt show this fall, so have been working with them and looking forward to that event.
Our new school season at RSA start next week and I have many new ideas for my students. I love the pillows in the photo from the summer sewing club, great job Mary, Amy and Rose.
I have my last sewing class with my younger students tomorrow. It is so exciting to see new young people being creative and their interest in sewing. We have great discussions, I think they all relax when their hands are busy and the thoughts and words just flow. We have talked a lot about sewing machines and how they work, in my research I found this unique machine. I love when design is always a part of function.
The Alto machne is made for non/beginner sewers. Easy threading, and the speed is controlled by your hands moving on the fabrics-no foot pedal. This could be great for students.
Seeing spots-painting dots, many silk scarf orders around here, this design has been a favorite this this spring/summer. I can see the end coming with this last 5 months of orders. Looking forward to new ideas and designs and I hope to have some samples and orders available for family and friends this summer.
