24th Annual Ethnic Arts Festival in Evanston, IL

Greetings All,
Well we survived another festival and I met some wonderful people as usual. This time I was amazed by the young people that wanted to take pictures of my work and in turn I took pictures of them and some of them immediately posed. I had a great time.

The new items that I took this time were the garments (left). The "Over The Rainbow" coat was the big hit. It got photographed with and without me and I even took a picture of it with and a friends that stopped by the booth (below). It also was modeled, stroked and praised, but it didn't find a new home yet.

Gwen McGee-Boyd (above right) had a great weekend also and here she is explaining one of her pieces. Gwen has a new website and do check her out at It was a lovely weekend. Next month I will be at the "Seaway Bank"24th annual art fair on 15th and 16th from noon to 6 pm each day at 645 East 87th street. So if you are in the area come by and say hello. Summer in the city.

24 Annual Ethnic Arts Festival in Evanston, IL

Greeting All,

I'm still here I've just been planning for the "24th Annual Ethnic Arts Festival" in Evanston, IL. Last year was my first time doing this event and I want be alone, Gwen McGee Boyd of the "Sew What Art Quilters" is my sponsor and co-vendee. One day if rain for half a day and the second day was just a dream and people were out both days in spite of the weather and it's a beautful setting with lake Michigan as the backdrop.

I made a half dozen pantsuits (below) and finished several jackets/coats (above) for this weekend because last month that's what sold. I only sold two small art quilts, one apron and three jackets/coats. People keep asking about the pantsuits that I wear so this time I will try those. You never know what people want or will buy and I'm so very glad that I know how to do more that one thing. So if you are in Evanston, IL the 18th and 19th come by the festival and stop by booths 41 and 42 and say hello.
