Brimfield Antique Fair Summer 2015

The Brimfield Antique Show is held three times a year in Western Massachusetts.
It is one of the largest in the country with over 5000 dealers.
People come from all over the country and the world to buy and sell since 1986!
Excitement abounds here every year as the little town is transformed into a vibrant, bustling marketplace of wares,
not seen anywhere else!
The thrill of the hunt and chase for the most unusual item is the greatest fun
and we are so lucky to have the opportunity to visit this magical fairyland of yesteryear so often!

Rag Bags and Remnant Ribbon

Published Sew Somerset Magazine Summer 2015

So excited to be published again into favorite magazine, Sew Somerset, along with so many distinguished mixed media and fiber artists!

It is a privilege to be included.
My article, "Rag Bags and Remnant Ribbon" tells the story about my grandfather and how he collected rags and brought them to the salvage yard, bringing me along for an adventure which 
left an indelible and fond memory for me.
This recollection one day as I was rifling through bins at a fabric wearhouse spurred the inspiration for me to create ribbon from remnants to use in making and decorating bags.
