There are no before photo's so it will be hard to tell, but the studio is neater and cleaner than it was two days before the tour. With balloons on the mail box, doors of the studio and house it looked festive. There were cookies, water, grapes, trail mix and lemonade on tables but few people helped themselves to the snacks and drinks.
|The studio - 20' x 20' former 2 stall barn.|
|Entering the studio...|
|Fiber Now magazine open to a page that featured my "Circus Time" quilt and my resume.|
|Cookies, samples of small work, postcards and business cards, and small pieces for touching and showing techniques.|
|My wall of fabric, cutting table and drawers full of tools.|
|Hand dyed scarves for sale -|
|Sewing table, ironing station and thread cabinet|
By the end of the day, I looked around and realized how overwhelming the studio might be to someone who isn't as visually oriented. The walls have family photo's, inspiration photo's, samples of techniques and small pieces of work on them. I can see most of my tools - fabric, paint, brushes, stabilizers, etc. Someone else could set it up very differently - but it's working for me so far.
Next post will show how displayed work in the house. It seemed helpful for people to see how the work looks in a living room. Thanks for looking!
