Bixby First Fridays Popup

I'm going to "pop up" at the Bixby Knolls First Fridays Arts Walk tonight, where they close off the street and have a sort of street faire. I thought I'd just go to demonstrate weaving, but I learned I'll have a wall so I'm bringing some wall art to make a little exhibit. Come by if you can; I'll be in the Expo Arts Center, 4321 Atlantic Ave in Bixby Knolls (Long Beach, CA), 6:30-9:30.

WeFF Report


SCHG's Weaving & Fiber Fest was a blast as usual. So many guild members chip in and help, it makes a fun fiber-filled day. Here are Karen F. and Karen L., modeling two tops I had in the fashion show.

The purple and blues one on Karen F. is in huck and huck lace.  The tops have sleeves that are open on top and are secured with a decorative button.


They have a side slit below the arm seam, on a diagonal that gives them a handkerchief-hem look. The green one Karen L. is wearing is in leno weave and has a nice drape.

And here's the display of the guild's annual challenge, whose theme was "Fruit". My answer were the towels that are all lined up in 2 rows on the rack. I called them "Fruit for All Seasons Towels", since they were woven in Summer & Winter (haha, get it? - groan!).

Currently on the Loom

I guess with the (finally!!!) cooler weather and Thanksgiving coming up I've wanted to weave some fall colors. What will these lustrous golds and rusts become? I've been working on several new things for upcoming sales.







This year will be my first time at the Holiday Artisan Faire at Chemers Gallery in Tustin, CA, December 2 & 3. I'll have lots of my work there. More details to follow...
