Fibre Art Brooches

This coming weekend (November 16th and 17th) I will be selling my fibre art at Artistry 2013 in Blind Bay.  This is the third year for this wonderful show/sale where local artisans sell their handmade goods.

I like to have something a little different to offer at these local sales and this year I have been creating some fibre art brooches.  They have been fun to make and I will be really interested to see how they are received.

The brooches started off with a felted base of wool roving and then I added some other fibres with additional needle felting or hand stitches. I love exaggerating embroidery stitches and then layering more stitches or beads on top.  The background fabric is ultrasuede and there is a pin back on each piece.

I will also be selling my fibre art purses and cuffs as well as a few of my art quilts.

If you are in the area, drop by the Blind Bay Community Hall on Blind Bay Road (right across from the public beach) on Saturday between 10am and 4pm or on Sunday between 11am and 3pm.
