Fall 2017 so far….

Hi Friends!   It was a busy September 2017, and great to see you all again.  I am already applying to Clothesline and The Purple Painted Lady shows for 2018.  YAY!  This year I introduced “matching sets”, including a pair of arm warmers, leg warmers, and a hat…. all matching sweater materials.  I also continue to create the ever popular PONCHO, and shawls.  I love to hear from you which pieces you enjoy, thank you!  I am already thinking of next year, and what I can create using new techniques, and new ideas.  I have been playing with different materials, and even using some patterns.  More on that as I continue to mess around with ideas!  I look forward to seeing you at the Canandaigua Christkindl show and Rochester Museum and Science Center show in November!  Check my HOME page to get more information.

2017 Fall and Winter Show Schedule

Hi everyone!!  Seasons go by so fast, and it’s been a while since I have written.  I have been busy with a family member staying with us since September of last year.  She sleeps in my sewing room, so it has been a challenge getting in there to sew, but I have done it!  You can always check my Facebook page for up to the minute creations.  I have been working on new ideas, and bringing back some older ones.  I started making “sets” of matching hat, arm warmer, and leg warmers.  Some really fun colors.

Fun stuff going on…….

Hi friends!  
It’s been a while since I’ve put some words down here, but I thought I would let you know what I have been up to!  
Kreationality had a great 2015 season, and I got right back to sewing, and creating from new ideas right away in the new year.  One of the things I have learned is called wet felting.  I have always loved the felting process, specifically the nuno felting, or wet felting.  It’s just a beautiful process, and a way to be very creative with color.  So I took a class at Weaving & Fibert Arts Center.  I loved learning the process with the added touch of using upcycled silk pieces on the project.  We created scarves in the class, and I have since created several others.  My favorite one is shown here. P1040663

I am signed up for another class this month at the Weaving & FIbert Arts Center to learn how to dye the silk and wool that are used in the felting process.  I love the fiber arts!  I hope to learn more on spinning wool soon, because I already bought a spinning wheel last year at the Hemlock Fiber show.  Now that was a FUN show… I was overwhelmed by all the things I could create!  I tried almost every process available.  Hope to get back to that show this year!

I continue to gather wool sweaters, and chop them up to re-invent new, exciting and fun sweaters!  You can visit my facebook page to see the current pieces I have completed!  

I have listed the 2016 shows I am participating in on the Kreationality website under Festivals and Stores tab.  I was accepted to Morristown Holiday Craft Show in New Jersey this year, but I decided not to do that one.  Maybe in the future when I am retired, and have a bit more time!!  😀

So I will continue learning new things, creating at my sewing machine, and keeping in touch with you through the summer!!  Have fun, and hope to see you in September!  I am grateful for you support!

Thank you!!
