Sneak Peek: Fabric Artists for HANDMADE on CHARLES ST


PHOTO 1: These Handmade Braided Coasters are a colorful handmade accent to any room. My Aunt Elinor can be viewed as an inspiration to all of us. She is still busy sewing and will turn 98 on May 3rd! When she told me she wanted to help at our May show, I was thrilled, but when she offered to also sew some of her handmade jewels, I was even more excited! These braided fabric gems will last for years to come and are top quality, as my dear aunt has an incredible eye for detail and always takes the time to do it right.

PHOTO 2: Lil (my talented seamstress sister) made these lovely Handmade Accent Pillows from pieces of decorator fabric. Some are accented with one of my handmade clay buttons and some are “buttonless.” Either way, these pillows are a great colorful addition to your home decor. In the past, Lil has made beautiful bridal and attendant gowns. I am pretty sure my wedding dress was one of her first ones— 33 years ago May 4th!

PHOTO 3: Liz Ferguson makes gorgeous handmade purses, bags, Ipad/Kindle/Nook cases, clutch purses and more! Her fabric color selection and pattern combinations are outstanding. You can visit her Etsy store to view a good selecion of more of her handmade work. Click here to visit: Liz’s Store. We will have a nice variety of many of her items on hand at our show in May, so be sure to stop by. (Photos don’t do them justice!)

PHOTO 4: Pat Babb upcycles carefully selected tshirts and makes them into necklaces. She will also have some handmade fabric floral clips that can be worn with the necklaces for a nice little addition to the scarf necklace. (clips are not pictured, but trust me, they are cute as can be!) Pat donates proceeds from the sales of her fabric items to support a worldwide soccer organization known as the Mission Ball.

These four creative ladies are a few of the participating artists for our May Home Show: HANDMADE ON CHARLES STREET May 11 & 12! Details on hours and location are in the right side of this blog.
