Its very exciting and a bit scary. Three minutes to sell my hard work , to convince them they need my jackets. I am offering them some exciting proposals as well - innovative business ideas that might be good for them and for me !! Can't say too much at this point.
Over the summer I have sold so many Re Fashioned garments. The Selvedge show in Bath and Painswick Art Couture Show had so many lovely customers who went home very pleased with some of my creations.

Still am very busy at the moment, so just a very quick note to let you all know that I will be at the Selvedge Fashion Fair in The Octagon in Bath on Saturday 10th May. I have lots of new unique Art Jackets and some really stunning Beatrice jackets for Summer wear. Come along and see me and Trev and my StitchyWooWoo stand.

Over the next few weeks they are having an auction to raise funds. Members were asked to create a small square to donate to the auction. Mine is for sale this week.
Take a look at the website and see some amazing small works of art in quilt form.
I admire the work of old illuminated manuscripts, the work involved in created the lettering and decoration. I wanted to create this in fabric but with a contemporary twist. I looked at how modern text is used in the form phone and email text - using abbreviations. I decided to mix this with the decoartion . As you will see in the work the text represents this.
Lots of tiny pieces of applied fabrics. Took ages to work but I feel I have captured the look of old book pages. The auction is like a Dutch auction and takes the form of getting less each day, so you could get a wonderful bargain if you are quick.
Several other pieces that I created in this series,although much bigger works are shown below.
This other piece is in the same style.
Enjoy ! and happy bidding at the auction.
