Recognize the potholders? (actually both of them are already sold, but I’ll have others) The Mother’s Day Show is next Saturday the 12th and I’m almost ready for it. I have six wall hangings and 15 Potholders. ( I really only have 10 potholders right now but will have 15 by next Saturday and I still have to finish off one of my streaming wall hangings)
But like I said, I’m almost ready. I’m going to be at Seventy Main at 9AM next Friday to help Zaidee hang the show. Then I’ll pick up my Mother and bring her out to the farm so she can be at the show the next day. I’ll be there from 10-6 on Saturday to man the gallery. And Jon, will be there, with Mom, from around 1:00-4:00 giving his talk in between signing books and selling his notecards and some matted prints. (another of Jon’s favorite things to do is hawk his work, he’s definitely not one of those shy writers) I know I’m going to get to meet some email friends for the first time. One of them, Fran from Vermont, already has first dibs on my wall hanging My Dreams are Catching up with Me. (that’s the one I haven’t finished yet).
The other artists and events are: Nancy Bariluk-Smith , hand-made glass beaded jewelry and mixed media jewelry pieces with hand dyed ribbon, brass and gunmetal wire; Robin Blakney-Carlson, hand felted scarves and handbags made with fine merino wool and natural fibers; Jane McMillen, wallets, small purses, pin cushions and other small gift items; Chung-Ah Park, nature inspired pottery; Kendra Farstad with pastel landscape artwork and notecards; Judy Leon with alpaca yarn, roving and felted scarves and other alpaca items; Susan Quillio of Spoonful Catering will be offering a Spring Lunch Menu; 100 Mile Savory Pie gift pack & single pack; Mother’s Day gift chocolates. (I’ll probably buy my mom one of these) There will be live music throughout the day, and Farmer’s Market outside from 11-2.
