New weaving series

In the last few weeks I've been working on a series fringey, layered weavings. One of my main goals is to make pieces that are still somewhat sizeable, but take less time to create than my usual weavings. The faster I can make them, the cheaper I can sell them. It is so hard to price work that takes hours to create and still make them affordable. It's an ongoing process, but I'm making headway!

These weavings (and many more!) will be available at The Made Fest this fall. Stay tuned for details! 

Urbana's Market at the Square

This morning at the farmer's market was wonderful! I tried a new approach to attract families to my booth by setting up a free painting station right next door. Luckily, I didn't have neighbors on either side, which allowed for a  crowd. I'll be doing this every week from now on and plan on coming up with a different themes for each week that I'm there. Oh, and also to get more paints!

Things are coming together with this set-up and my dream is unfolding in front me. Thanks for the support! C-U is a wonderful community and I am so happy to be a part of it. 

So focused!
