Wow! Busy weekend ahead. I haven’t even unpacked from my last show in San Luis Obispo, CA and it’s already time for my next show. Last weekend (first weekend of every month) we had the monthly meeting of the South Bay Sashiko Guild in San Jose/Campbell, CA, and now I’m setting up for the Piecemakers Guild Quilt Show at Ohlone College in Newark, CA. Fortunately for me it’s a local show, which means a nice, short commute!
A new item I’ll be offering at the show this weekend will be yukata fabric packs. Candy box assortments of six or eight 1/3 meter pieces of vintage yukata selected for color, texture, and color compatibility for your quilting pleasure. Each piece measures roughly 14″ x 13″. I haven’t offered these in years, no idea why it’s taken me so long to get back to doing them. They really are a treat and I have fun putting them together.
The above sample is from a pack all in blue. The photo really doesn’t do it justice and the colors are so much nicer in person. I’ll have better photos up soon as these will also be listed in the Kimonomomo Etsy shop after this weekend.
I hope to meet some of you in Newark this weekend! It always surprises me when I meet someone at a quilt show or guild event and hear “I’ve been reading your blog…” I spend so much time in the studio working (and occasionally writing) alone that I forget people actually have heard of me.
