How fantastic does the Powertex stand, at the Craft and Quilt Fair look??
What a huge job, many hours of work, lots of laughter, frustration at trying to get the artwork to hang straight, boxes everywhere, things missing, scissors gone AWOL, and finally a display that looks wonderful.
Featuring artwork by some of the Victorian Powertex Team, there are many beautiful examples for to inspire you, demonstrating what can be achieved with the fabulous Powertex range of products.
There are lots of great show "specials", and workshops and demonstrations throughout the day.
Every day, I will be doing a "Christmas in July" Christmas Bauble demonstration, and a fabric tealight holder workshop. Ash will be doing a Powerprint demonstration daily and a beautiful mask workshop tomorrow at 4.00pm.
Looking forward to a fabulous four days!!
I am so excited!!
I have finally worked out how to set up a booking page off the Faeries website for workshops.
Yes, I am a total nerd, and have spent the last few hours nutting out (and I think at this late hour the emphasis is on "nut"), how to get it to work. At the moment it is just me and Willow the cat, who is also my technical assistant.
And yes, it does work!!
I get the inquiry immediately, with all the info about what workshop people are wanting to do etc. I am impressed, but then perhaps it doesn't take much. Creating this website has been such a learning curve, certainly would recommend using Weebly to anyone starting out. It is very user friendly.
You are now able to book direct from the website for a workshop. There is also a separate page with workshop information, prices etc.
I would also love any feedback regarding the site etc. Thanks
Have just said good-bye to another two sculptures. These two have been made from a wedding dress belonging to someone's Aunt. The smaller of the two is for the Aunt's 90th birthday - I hope she likes it.
My lovely surprise while making these two was that at I was pulling the dress apart, some confetti fell out from behind the waistband. Faded, but so special, when you think of all the memories that would have been attached to the dress.
Just a bit sentimental, but using fabric from clothing worn at special occasions or that has special significance, is a fabulous way of creating a really special sculpture. When I first started making fabric sculptures, I had used a Thai silk maternity dress, that I wore when having our son, (who is now 33) to make a geisha.
