Pickstitch! I met this stitch on a beautifully designed skirt and blouse by Cynthia Designs of Dover, NH this week. I had to show you what it looked like up close because I find it so amazing. Most people tell me that they can not draw a straight line. I tell them I can't sew a straight line ... but now I know something which has to be even harder ... Hand sewing a curly line! Cynthia is a woman of many talents. She creates clothing based on textures, patterns, line and color. She is an artist of the fabric world. Her one of a kind clothing is fashionable, funky and full of life. Each have a title and story behind them. The details are astounding and her combinations of color/texture and shape of garment are more than unique. By now are you are wondering why I am not showing you the entire outfit? Simple! You must come see for yourself. (or wait to see the photos afterwards) We are having an Art to Wear/Home Design show on April 15th from 11 to 4 p.m. at artstream.
Come on over and enjoy all kinds of fashionable things you or someone else can wear, use in your home or write on or hang on your wall. There will be music and refreshments as well as some of the most interesting designers in the area who will answer your every question about their work. Shameless promotion here? You bet! Look for our invitations in your mailbox and bring a friend. Not on our mailing list? Sign up at the gallery website artstream. The event will be full of clothing, accessories, pottery, jewelry, fiber art pieces, silk scarves, felted items and more nestled into our upcoming exhibit "Composite Memories". Oh yes! There is also going to be a fashion runway show beginning at 2 p.m. Come have some fun with us in April!

The word for the day is .... Details .... as in important, tiny, and don't get lost in them.
