Announcement   New fabric has landed this week. HOT, or should I say HAUGHT, it's fabulous wax print from Tanzania, "lady stilettos", YES, in yellow, black, deep orange and lime green. DELICIOUSNESSSSSSSSSSS. Oh me oh my, be on the look out for new quilts, bags, flags, skirts, cards, reading pillows, hoodies and more. And some lucky pieces will feature some of this dreamy textile.

OH THE INSPIRATION
ladies get in formation
I'm sewing in elation
working in my new location
this vocation is my salvation
art's ultimate creation
is freedom from frustration

Getting silly over here, must be the new fabrics. They're joyous.

About

Taking throw away objects and turning them into new memories and stories.

PLEASE PLEASE - I AM ON A SCAVENGER HUNT FOR MORE EXCEPTIONAL FABRIC IN THIS WONDERFUL WIDE WORLD OF OURS AND WILL BE BACK TO SHIPPING MID JANUARY. NOTE ALL ORDERS PLACED WILL SHIP AFTER JANUARY 20.

The circle does not end. What you throw away gets repurposed and turned into a new and beautiful object. The next memory is born.

My focus and approach to art is repurposing and recycling. I teach this philosophy in all my community classes too. Besides the obvious benefits to the environment, repurposing textiles, wood, metal, paper – even plastic grocery bags – this allows individuals and groups to afford to create art. Where I live in the Mississippi Delta, the poorest region of the poorest state in the United States, lack of money for materials should not be a stumbling block to artistic expression. By utilizing recycled items, by repurposing materials, I makes art available to anyone, regardless of their socio-economic status. I believes art is not only a “connector” for educational endeavors but also a conduit for human and community relationships.
