I’ve had the immense pleasure of being a professional craftsperson for 42 years. I started this celebration 2 years ago and got sidetracked . Lots of little stories and pictures of my adventures in my business and if you’d like to see my new blog that celebrates it, please check it out at the bottom of my Home Page. Each day for 365 days I’ll share with you the stories and pictures and memories I’ve had for 42 years of stitchery. Thank-you for loving my stuff….
I got my start at the Salon Des Metiers d’Art in Montreal way back in 1978 when I first started to quilt. Big show for a new craftsperson so I went professional right away. Throughout the years I’ve sold at most of the major craft shows across the country, One of a Kind in Toronto and the Filberg Festival in Comox, Edmonton, Calgary , Winnipeg, Ottawa When I was specializing in ladies wear I sold at the fabulous VanDusen Garden Show with my gorgeous floral dresses, jackets and hats. I was making reproduction Victorian underwear with antique lace for a while and wore it in my booth at the Old Clothing Show in Toronto. That was a cool show. I’ve done Farmers Markets, the CNE in Toronto and fashion shows. I’ve done a lot of fashion shows. Especially with the men and musicians stage line.
Music festivals are my favorite place to set up and especially Blues Festivals. The ambiance is magic. My kind of music and my kind of people. Sigh.. I’m sure missing them during this past year of covid.
I’ve been setting up my stage wear in bars for music jams for many years too and the impromptu fashion shows that we’ve had have been highlights for sure. Thankyou to all the models who have strutted their stuff in my clothing at these events. So much fun.
My kids wear is whimsical . So much fun in great colors and themes.
In the pictures are a sprinkling of my fashions and fun of the past 42 years. Check out my blog for stories of my 42 years in stitchery.
