Jacket Class - day 3
This very experienced group of jacket designers/sewers continued to make rapid progress as they neared completion of the task and were able to model their sucesses. Caris planned ahead and brought her black slacks to match her silk creation. We are all jealous of how she looks so young and fit!
Varda is an experienced fiber artist and completed her design construction with fancy stitching and fabric manipulation of all varieties. She has only a little finish work needed to step out in her new red jacket.
Nancy Hicks stopped by for a visit and modeled her completed jacket from an earlier Priscilla class. Beth, who also stopped in today for some sewing time, can be seen in the background getting Nancy's picture.
Priscilla's students have completed dozens of wearable art pieces of clothing as a result of these classes. She should be very proud!
The Clothesline Art Festival at the Memorial Art Gallery next weekend will feature a booth manned by RAFA members and offering their art quilts for sale. Vendors at the Festival were asked to decorate smocks, which will be displayed on the fence around the Festival. Marcia got some good ideas and suggestions from Beth and Priscilla and created this attention-getting design for her smock.
