With a love of fashion and textiles and a background in natural resources and photography, Sherri has been seeking treasures at antique and second-hand stores for years. From this sleuthing, she has created affordable, original pieces of wearable artwork.
With a love of fiber arts, furthered by study of art and design, Carol is creating artful fashion statements from “deconstructed designs,” marrying vintage garments with hand-painted silk. You may find an embellished vest or a pillow made from bridal gown scraps. Both apparel and home accessories will be featured.
Hand created felt has been Michelle’s focus since she took a ‘I wonder what this is’ one day workshop in 2004. She says “I fell head over heels in wooly fluff”. What is felt? Wool, water and oomph. It’s a marriage of materials with wool fibers and a wonderfully malleable medium. Michelle can create a garment that is featherweight and fluid or a vessel that is sturdy and quite strong. Her pieces, both wearable and home décor, reflect a drive to create new and unusual designs using natural, sustainable materials.
Mary Kaye O’Neill
Exploring color has been her life-long pursuit, but this new body of work is more about playing with color … breaking some rules and watching for the magic. Using all natural fibers — silk, cotton, linen — Mary Kaye has created on fabric the vibrancy once found in her jewelry. Her designs are full of whimsy and boldness. Jackets, scarves and light tops will be available as well as her new wall art creations.
Linda Scott is bringing jewelry and tote bags featuring talismans and good luck symbols, as well as un-ordinary scarves made from men’s silk ties. (Why stop at boyfriend jeans or shirts when you can have a boyfriend scarf?). She will also bring some recent examples of her printmaking.
