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.
