Sewing in Business – Toy-Maker & Textile Artist
Last weekend we enjoyed Nashville, TN for our 46th wedding Anniversary. One highlight was a juried craft fair in Centennial Park (an AMAZING park by the way!). Join me to learn from these artisans…..
First up: Tom from Lucy’s Toys.
I agree, his website isn’t fancy dancy, but what is offered – and at SUCH LOW PRICES in my opinion – is absolutely AMAZING! www.lucystoys.com
When I returned later to make my ‘Nana purchase’, (the bunny), I asked more about the polyester fur and he shared it runs them about $10/yard and that they must order 1000 yards at a time of a color! Just think of the storage room that demands. I’m still dumbfounded at the low pricing on these critters. If you’ve EVER made any kind of doll or toy, I know you’ll agree….
And Next: Jessica Rose from www.Jrosetextilearts.com
I love anything dyed using nature. Some day…. I’ll MAKE time to play with this myself. After all, I even have water and a sink in my Sunroom Sewing Studio. Til then – I love to check out other artists’ work. Listen to how Jessica does it.
A few more interviews and some SNOOP Shopping coming up in my next blog post…..
Hello! first time to my (Londa’s) Blog?
BONUS – you’ll receive a FREE video on how a wonderful factory-trained Polish woman taught me to set in sleeves!
I love to get to know sewing fashionistas and share our sewing adventures together!
