The Stuff and the Stuff-ees


off the loom

cut down for easier stuffing

When you are a weaver you end up with lots of what is called 'thrums'.  My pile of thrums grows with every weaving project.  I have found a new way to use up my thrums.

Meet the STUFF-EES

My pile is shrinking

I love fashioning and sewing up the Stuffs.  You can see these creations at the Guild in Minneapolis, MN.

I love the little animals, still weaving is my first love and here is my latest piece.
I call it Red Zen, Reppweave woven with pearl cottons, 16/2 cottons, linen and native prairie grasses.

Handmade From the Heart

Photos of the event held at The Guild in Minneapolis.  It was a cold, sunny day outside but lots of warmth inside.  My spot was close to the sunny south side windows.

The sun glinting off the baskets of the animals.  You can tell they were having a good time.

Prairie Grass Weavings 

The Valentine-y table of treats was a work of art itself, delicious in reds, pinks, white and chocolates
Guilty pleasures all, tasty too!

Besides me, guest artists invited featured nuno felted scarves by sisters Nancy Beth Stevenson, Nancy Stevens Randall, their business is called Scarving Artists.  You can tell they have a good time putting their work together. Katherine Seger, an painter in oils, painted a still life she gave away at the end of the day. Interesting to see her process beginning with an empty canvas transformed into a fine piece of art by the end of the day.  Go to www.KatherineSeger.com to see her work.  Hostess aprons by Robin Klitze were there too, light-hearted whimsical art wear.

My cats and dogs are invited to come back and hold a place at The Guild.   See them around-about March.   Go to The Guild Minneapolis if you want to see more.

It was a privilege to be invited, I enjoyed the day.
Happy Valentines Day
