Yesterday I got an email from Micaela at the Adirondack Museum asking me if I would like to participate in their Fabric Arts and Fiber Festival on September 15th. I would have my work on display, bring my sewing machine and work on a piece while talking to people as they came by. They are even giving me a “modest honorarium”. Hummm I thought, how interesting that this should come just after what I wrote the other day about legitimacy.
So I said yes, not because of the legitimacy thing, or the money (although that’s really nice) but because it sounds like fun and is just the kind of thing I love to do. I mean, what’s better, I get to do my work and share it with people and talk to them about it.
So now I have a month to make some new work to display. A little of each I think, a couple of quilts, some potholders and pillows and wall hangings. Then, after the Festival, I can sell them.
I’m really looking forward to it, so if you’re in the area and want to drop by, I’ll be at the Adirondack Museum in in Blue Mountain Lake NY on September 15th, from 1-4pm.
