Unique fabrics--including mine!--at StashFest

StashFest 2014
 I met Patricia Belyea of Okan Arts at a Surface Design Association meeting last fall. When I showed her my hand painted silk scarves she invited me to be a presenter at StashFest! in LaConner the last weekend of March.

The purple is cochineal.
 I must have a lot of minerals in my water to
get purple instead of red.
 My goal is to have $5000 worth of hand painted silk scarves and yardage, many dyed in natural dyes. I am learning as I go; tomorrow I plan to make my first indigo vat!

So what is StashFest? Well, if you sew, if you adore quilting, if you drool over unique and wonderful fabrics, you will want to come to StashFest. StashFest is:

"A two-day sale of remarkable and unique fabrics--for quilting, fashion, and home decor--with thousands of yards to choose from. Plus gorgeous wearable items. And a Sponsor Shop filled with enticing products from major manufacturers. And lots of door prizes--given away every hour!"

Patricia came to Vashon to see my show at the Vashon Tea Shop, and to visit my studio! She took some lovely photos and wrote about it here.
