Another Successful Year!!

IMG_9848Thank you to all of you who participated in Kreationality’s success this past Fall/Winter season of shows.  Whether you purchased a piece, stopped by to chat, complimented what I do, helped me in my booth, offered ideas, introduced yourself as a fellow vendor, congratulated me on my recognition awards, or just smiled as you walked by!  Thank you!  Thank you to my friends and family who support me with this crazy business…. it’s a great feeling to have that support!
As I wind down from the hectic schedule of participating in the four months of shows, I realize that the work to keep this business going does not stop!  I continue to get requests for my pieces now that the shows are over, and I am busy working on adding items to the Etsy site where you can purchase Kreationality pieces.  I am so grateful for those of you that come back for more of my pieces, and purchase the items as soon as I completed creating them!  So my challenge going forward is to stay ahead of the demand!  

I have been doing the shows for three years now, and I think I finally have a handle on which ones are the right fit for me, and my crazy pieces!!  That’s a good thing!  I will be able to sew more with a more thought out schedule!  
I look forward to spending January through August in my sewing rooms.  My goal is to create double the amount of pieces for 2015.  I promise to have lots more available in 2015.  
My industrial serge machine I purchase in 2014 was worth every penny!  It is faster, and goes through much thicker sweaters…. oh, I love it!  I decided to purchase an industrial straight stitch in January, and it is working perfectly to sew the pockets on all the sweaters I am creating!!   I would also like to use the straight stitch machine to get back to wall hangings with the upcycled materials!  They are unique, and fun pieces for home decorating!  
Spring is on its way, and I am in my sewing rooms creating one-of-a-kind pieces for 2015  Fall/Winter show season!
Stay connected with Kreationality on Facebook!
Peace,
Karen

Sweater Vest

DSCN3003I love the way this custom created vest came out.  I have done a few of these vests before, but this one was custom created in an XL, size 18.  I create these vests by sewing (serging) together rectangles from left over arm warmer sweater pieces.  Sometimes the sweater piece is too thick to create arm warmers, and sometimes there is that odd piece that just gets tossed into the “extra” pile.  I like the variation of colors, and textures that create these vests.  They are definitely one-of-a-kind, and totally unique in design and pattern. 
You can find my pieces on Facebook where I always post the newest creations.  You can see what is available now at my Etsy shop.
