You know, I am always amazed and humbled by the positive response we receive at shows like these. I suppose when you spend all your time romancing a sewing machine, it's hard to know whether your work is a niche within a niche, or if it has mass appeal. Thanks to everyone who stopped by our booth, awww!'ed the bonnets, and supported us with kind words or dollars!
Some favorite vendors from Bloomington:
- Orange Fuzz, my new favorite soapmakers! Check out their shaving kit. I bought one as a Christmas gift for my other half, but was so excited about it I gave it to him yesterday! Oops.
- Clutches and other pretties from Felix & Jayne: her bags are made of vinyl with big, bright zippers, screenprints, and couched yarn! You really must have a look.
- Beautiful (and affordable) metal jewelry from Courtney Fischer, whose work reminds me why I love abandoned buildings and metal scrapyards so much.
- And of course, Panther By Hand: for those who love colorful unders for grown-ups and breakfast imagery for their home!
