Thank you for the welcome. This is my first time trying to get out into art fairs and festivals, and I'm clueless, unfortunately. So I'm glad there is so much information to go through on this site. And hopefully this will make everything easier and more understandable. Thanks again!

Tina, I just saw some of your comments on new people's pages. They are terrific. Thanks so much for this outreach and for all your contributions -- here is a gift, some new red patent leather heels!

Hi Christina,

I lost your comment to me, but wanted to answer your question of how I started making cloth dolls.  I had always loved the handmade cloth dolls that a friend of mine had when I was in grade school, and I loved to sew, so I just started in cloth.

Hi Christina,

Yes, Thanksgiving got in my way too!   Just back and now working toward my winter shows.

I do find knitting/crocheting meditative, unlike sewing!   When weaving patterns, it is also meditative.

Can't imagine not staying busy!

Thanks for the welcome, Christina.  I liked your hats, I make small hats for my dolls so I am always interested in handmade hats.  This site is overwhelming to me right now, but I will keep working with it until I understand what I am doing.  I like the idea of the communication between artists.

I think I have 5 boiled wool jackets!!!   I love them.   When I was little and my mother used to take us all to the fabric store, I would go down the aisles and feel all the materials!   I just loved it.    So, some things do start early!    Buying a lamb at a county fair started me in spinning, knitting and eventually, weaving!

Thanks for your comment/welcome message on my wall, Christina! Looking forward to some great discussions here at Art Fair Insiders.

Thank you SO much, Christina!    

I love your felted items.   I've always been so attracted to felted bags and hats!

Hi Christina,

I design and weave textiles and then design and construct jackets.    Been at it for 35 years!    I still love what I'm doingWright%2CL1.jpg

Hi Christina -- yes, indeed, I am "behind the scenes." Am on the board of the Arts Council here and we are looking at holding a juried art expo in 2016. Another committee member suggested this was a great site to look at. Am learning a lot! (For 17 years I was with the Smithsonian Inst. as a sr. program coordinator, so this is new territory for me). Thanks for your note.

Thank you for the welcome! I just applied and got accepted to my first juried show. I'm hoping to learn a lot here on this website so I have some idea of what I'm doing before I get there.

Hi Christina - just trying to figure out this site.  I do have a glass making studio on Beaver Island as well as in Ann Arbor.  I live on the island in the summer months (I'm retired).  So I am just back from my stay there. 

thanks for the welcome!  Love your felting pictures.
