Arts and crafts at Red Bank Market, Saturday

The Red Bank Market fall arts and crafts event is set for this Saturday, October 9. I will be there with FiberAntics to participate in the event. Stop by my tent for a visit and see my newest fiber art creations.
Grape Harvest bog jacket

The Red Bank Market features area artists and their hand-crafted items including hand-dyed silk scarves, fiber art, wearables, hand knit items, glasswork, woodwork and other art. Live music, food and produce from local farms will add to the festivities.

Shown here is one of my newest pieces. It is a silk noil bog jacket called Grape Harvest. It is a kimono style jacket made from hand dyed raw silk with a shawl collar and kimono style sleeves. It is reminiscent of several trips I made to the wineries of the Finger Lakes area—particularly Bully Hill Vineyards—in upstate New York.

Embrace the cooler temperatures in a one-of-a-kind artwear jacket and celebrate the fall harvest season in the luscious colors of the vineyard! Come to the Red Bank Market this Saturday for unique holiday gifts or something special for yourself.

My hand-dyed artwear and other fiber art pieces will also be on the runway and for sale at Tennessee Presents Textiles on November 13, 2010. Tennessee Presents Textiles is a wearable art fashion and runway show and sale featuring several of the southeast's finest textile artists. Tickets are one sale now until November 8 through the Monroe Council for the Arts. Call: (423) 442-3210. Advanced purchase is required.
