Thanks to everyone (and there were lots of you), who helped get the booth ready for Creativ Festival. It was exhausting but lots of fun, and no one lost a toe or their temper - that's what I call success. I'd also like to thank Sherri of Thread Riding Hood. Her patterns and kits were a hit and it was fun putting everything together with her.
Thanks as well to all the excellent folks who stopped by to look, chat, shop, and share their creative inspiration. It was really fun getting to meet everyone and hearing about their projects. I loved seeing what people like and respond too. It was a nice break from my home workshop.
I will see you next spring at Creativ Festival - and hopefully before that at a few other shows around town.
Sherri of Thread Riding Hood made a perfect travelling day dress out of the striking African Palm Indigo fabric and the April Rhodes Staple Dress pattern. She chose for colour, drape and density of pattern and it all came together beautifully.
Sherri made the pattern her own by modifying the pattern to create a new hemline that adds to the easy going elegance of her look. If you're not confident revising patterns (I am definitely not!), check out her blog for a clear and easy to follow tutorial and creating this shirt tale effect. It takes the dress in another direction.
