Back from vacation to the chilly waters of icebergs, I am ready for fall and winter sewing. I must admit in every village of Greenland, (there were no cities or towns as we know!), there were handicrafts, mostly sewn, and many with intricate beadwork. The Inuit/Eskimo ladies have not much more to do in the long winter months. There is NO vegetation so they use bold colors to brighten their homes and clothing. Even their homes are painted bright colors to be seen against the white landscape…this being from both an aesthetic and practical point. And just FYI, I have almost finished my summer sewing list (for once) and am starting a challenging one for fall and winter. Are you ready with your list?
Speaking of lists, I hope you have your shopping list ready for the Creative Sewing market to be held in Birmingham, AL September 13 and 14. There has been some confusion as to the duration of the market but rest assured Sunday will see all of your favorite vendors waiting for you. Bear Threads will, as always, have some of their unusual and vintage items there for you to peruse. The market opens at 10AM on Sunday. We hope to see you all there.
We welcome Linda Wall as a guest with her ‘modern’ doll and ‘how-to’ instructions. She is a gifted and dedicated doll artisan and we thought with the appreciation and knowledge we have gained from Louise Hedrick, this would be a great time for many of you who have become so intrigued with the doll world, to have someone share their doll making and dressing skills. We look forward to more from Linda in the future.
Louise Hedrick is back with ‘The Little Ones’. Oh Dear Me!!! And I was amazed with the intricacy of the ‘larger dolls’, but these are phenomenal! No more will I hear from our readers, ‘I don’t have anyone for which to sew’!!!!! Problem solved!!! Enough from me….enjoy this issue. Happy sewing and see you at market.
