A Wonderful Sale!


The sale was very successful!

I would like to send out mad props to the ladies of the Saskatoon Spinners and Weavers Guild for drawing together to create such a great event. We had all manner of beautiful handmade items for sale including handwoven scarves,stoles, table linens, blankets, jewelry, garments and rugs as well as handspun/knitted toques and scarves. I am so excited to be a part of such an industrious group of people! Also the demonstrations were tons of fun and I think that we got lots of exposure as well as some interest in future workshops which is awesome!

Thank you to my friends and family for support, encouragement and feedback I appreciate it immensely.

And thank you to everyone that came out and took a peek!

Here's a shot of the business card holder I fashioned with black card stock, double sided tape and some 8 inch pieces of inkle left over from past projects.

Here are a few images of the last set of jewelry I made before the sale:

I am currently setting up shop at etsy, and I hope to spend a little time altering the remaining chokers to make the sets more versatile. I want to make the pendants removeable so the choker may also be worn alone, and the pendant could then be clipped onto a chain of choice. Also looking into ways to make some of the pendants double as brooches. I plan to experiment more with the lariat style of necklace as well!

Anyway, stay tuned in the new year for some inkle updates and possibly a few workshops!

Also a fellow fibre student from college has a wonderful knitting blog where she posts all her designs. She recently made a wonderful blog mention of my inkle jewelry and I thought it was super sweet of her! She has some fantastic patterns available and I highly recommend checking out her blog Little NutMeg Productions ! So much knitting candy!
