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.

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!!

New stuff

Hi Everyone,

I’m sure everyone is looking forward to Spring!  Looks like it will take a little more time, though.  I have been busy with lots of visiting family, and taking some classes, and just having some fun.  I recently took a nuno felting class, and I loved it!  This is the scarf that I created at the class.  There are pieces of upcycled silk throughout the scarf.  I really enjoyed the class that was offered at the Weaving & Fiber Arts Center in East Rochester. 

upcycled nuno scarfIt was a new process for me, and I will continue to explore it, and find ways to incorporate this into my pieces.

I continue to work on my sweaters, and coats.  I have been sewing in between all the activities going on each weekend, but this weekend I am home for the whole weekend!!  I am sewing wildly, and having so much fun.  Tonight I mostly worked on black and white tunics, and started a poncho.  I had two ponchos at my last show which sold immediately, so I am working on more of those!

I will start out tomorrow morning finishing up my black and white poncho, and then changing my thread into some COLOR!  Stay posted on my Facebook page where I post each completed piece as I do them.  If interested in any of the pieces just let me know via message or email, and I can put the piece on Etsy

I have applied to all the shows I did last year so far, and I’m looking at an out of town show possibility.  Just because I don’t have enough going on in my life!  😀

I look forward to Spring, and getting outside!!  Stay posted for all my new pieces on Facebook.  
Peace!
