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.

Update on 2015 Shows

 

2014 Artist Row Award

2014 Artist Row Award

I received a letter from the show “Christmas in the Country” in Hamburg, NY (November 5th-8th), and they informed me my category is full, but not to be discouraged because I am on a wait list, so if a spot becomes available they will contact me.  They approved my application, so that’s good!!!  Wait and see on that event.

I am super HAPPY, and excited to find out that the Artist Row show at the Rochester Public Market is being held on Sunday, September 20th!!  So I will be able to participate at both Clothesline (September 12-13), and Artist Row!  Yay!  Artist Row was a great show last year, and I won an award in my category!!  I’m so honored!!  So glad to be participating in this event again this year!  
I have submitted all of my applications to the shows I hope to participate in, and will find out if I have been accepted when the jury process is complete for each show.  They all have a different process, and timeline, so I will find out when I find out!!! ;)
I’ll keep you posted!  I will also post the schedule, and updates on my Facebook page and website.  Stay connected!!  
Thank you for the love and support!!!  I feel it!
Peace,

2014 Shows

Hey everyone!  
It’s been a long, cold winter!   And I thought of posting LOTS of times, but never sat down to do it.  But I am finally sitting here to write something today!
I have been sooooooo excited as I receive ACCEPTANCE letters to almost all the shows I applied to….. yay!!!!!!  I think there are two more that I am waiting to hear about.  
Go to  Festivals to see where we will be this year!  It’s a pretty FULL schedule………yeah!  
I am doing two summer shows, and I know they will be FUN!  1374782_408804595912134_749745794_n
My husband, Jack,  and I are happy to be doing the Roycroft RALA Summer Festival in June.  We love East Aurora, NY, and enjoy spending time at the Roycroft Inn, and going to the shops on Main Street, especially Vidlers!  Jack is usually behind the scenes helping me in a HUGE way with cutting, and fixing stuff, helping with the tent, and creating all my booth ideas, but he will be my help in the tent at a few of the out-of-town shows.  :D  (he was awesome help in Canandaigua last year, see pic!!)
The next show in August will be out-of-town as well.  Jack and I will be participating in the Crafts Alliance Fine Crafts Show in Chautauqua, NY.  This is a whole new place for both of us to visit.  It looks like a fun place to vacation, so we’ll be checking it out for a future fun vacation spot!  
The rest of the shows start in September, beginning with the CLOTHESLINE Festival!  That was so fun last year!  I can’t wait to talk with all the friends that come by!  
And, you can see the rest of the show schedule here, and please make sure to come and visit meeeeeee!!  
In the meantime, “LIKE” me on Facebook  
I appreciate your emails, notes, comments, and LOVE!  
Thank you!!!!  :D

Festivals and Events

I have been adding events to the festival list on the website www.kreationality.com. Vintage Mannequin

There are a few unconfirmed events on the list that I am either waiting for the application to become available, or the “jury” is still out. Please check it out, and try to stop by and say “hi”, we would love to see you!
The June 1 &2 Fairport Canal Days is the first time we will be doing a Spring/Summer event. We will also be at Corn Hill in July, and Hammondsport in August. I’m not sure how we will be received in the warmer weather with our wool, and wool blend sweaters, but we will have fun no matter what! I will also have the “reversible totes” available at these events in lots of colors, and sizes with varying degrees of embellishments. They are fun to create, and I’m so glad I took the class at The Crafting Social!
I continue to create arm warmers, sweaters, and coats every day to make sure I have a nice variety for you to choose from. The arm warmers are always a huge success, and they just flew out of the booth last Fall, so I am going to be very well prepared this year. No more crazy nights at the machine creating for the next day! That was insane. As some of you know, I am a certified yoga instructor, but gave up teaching last year to spend more time on this biz, but I definitely continue my own practice, which keeps me sane, well, for the most part. I do some private instruction, and occasional group classes, because I still love to teach. I think teaching how to create these sweaters would be a fun thing to do, too. I enjoy new experiences, and that would be a great time. There is always something fun to do, or experience, if you just open yourself to it.
Have fun!!
Hope to see you soon!
