This is the calm before the chaos on morning number two. And ten in the morning stitchers start sewing, and they don’t stop until we turn the power off some time between nine and ten at night.
The Great Room at the Hardware Store waiting for the Stitchers to arrive.
The second day had fewer students and the students present were mostly already moving in the directions they wanted to go. This made for a much calmer day of stitching.
I how in this photo everyone is head-down and focused.
Andrea at the ironing board making curtains for her grandmother’s 1920’s cabin in downtown McCarthy.
Mark is on to his next project–taking his plaid shirts from the last thirty years and making them into a quilt masterpiece. You will have to wait until the next post to see this amazing creation.
Sewers of all skill levels produced all kinds of beautiful and functional items.
Petra made her daughter a very cute Kuspuk complete with zipper.
Nancy worked very hard all day on her quilt.
Here is the final result of her efforts.
Kirstin had not been on a sewing machine since she was a little girl. She made this beautiful tote for her art supplies.
Here is a close up of the front of the tote. We used an other tote to create the pattern. Kristin did all the surface design.
The backside of the tote features a fun pocket.
And this is the aftermath of day two. What a great day of sewing.
Massive Chaos- Amazing Creativity
I hope you will come back to see the final projects from day three. I think you will enjoy the results of three days of creative stitching.
If you liked this post you might enjoy seeing what happened on Day One of Sew Fun.
I am sharing this post on Nina Marie’s Off the Wall Friday. Check it out to see what other fiber artists from around the world have been working on all week.
Maria–so telling that you labeled that slightly untidy workspace as “massive chaos.” I shall have to give you a tour of my sewing space someday…
…you can still see the table, after all…
Petra- I would love to see your sewing space!
Loved visiting your blog today. I am here from the Off the wall gang. I’ve often wished I could buy an old building in a downtown area and turn it into a massive studio and store combination. Your posting reminded me of that. Old store fronts had lots of glass to let the light shine in!
I hope to make it back to see what the fella makes with his shirts. 🙂
It really was a hub of action and only in a large space can stitchers really spread out and get creative. Thank you so much for stopping by.
What a fun three days–Enjoyable post!
Thank you Nadia. It really was a fun stitching adventure.
I loved seeing your creative concoctions! The tote is great!
Thank you Cathy! The tote is a great beginner project for stitchers of all ages, and you can use it every day.
Awaiting the plaid shirt quilt….Carole
