Celebration of the Arts in Fuquay Varina June 2

I know this post is late but what a great time I had in Fuquay Varina at their Celebration of the Arts Festival. I finally got an EZ Up tent and it totally changed the look of my display (thank you Donna!)
My friend Sue came and helped me out that day. The weather was perfect and the location couldn't have been better. Hubby made me a new display so I can show the scarves better. (I am so lucky!)  it turned out very nice and it's light and easy to carry.
The only drawback was that the silk worries though clothes pins should take care of that. But they are easier to see and I can sort them for contrastability (new word I made up) The other display was nice to but it's beginning to lean and the scarves are pushed together too much to really see.

I also decided to make cell phone cases and possibly more small bags with my hand dyed fabric.

I also put our 1 yard pieces of other hand dyed fabric as well as fat quarters.
I also put out the Shibori Panels I made before. I think I'm going to play around with Shibori more in the's really a cool technique.

I also came across some Batik panels I made in a class and got them finished off. While I was getting the wax out of them I was remembering how much fun we had making them and yep....guess what else I'm going to start doing...Batiks...I've made 2 scarves so far (not pictured as yet) and a big panel that is really cool. (again not pictured as yet)

The Batiks are great color
I really love how great my display looks with the white EZ Up Tent and all the bright colors around it.

Happy Happy Happy

  1. Nice! I am glad you're happy with the white tent; it made a big difference with me. So much brighter and easier to see:)
    I hope to see your set up at another show I can actually get to!

  2. Scout out the DIY stores and look at the sandpaper - comes in a few different colors. Get some fine to very fine paper (less snaggability when finer) and get DH to adhere strips along the top of the rods - I think that would help even silk hold, without damage to the fabric.
