I had such a wonderful time at the Art Walk! Located in a historically preserved area in Ballard, Drygoods Design is tucked behind a tiny coffee shop and is so very charming. They change their window display frequently and I am loving these clouds with raindrops.
With a lot of vintage and salvaged wood pieces, I’ve said many times that if I ever had a coffee shop/fabric shop + sewing studio combo, this is exactly the kind of place I’d own. The two are actually separate establishments, but work really well together.
A bunch of my friends came to support the show (thank you!!) and there was quite a steady stream of Art Walkers flowing through the space. And though I get minor stage fright being the center of attention, the whole experience was great. Two of the pieces sold in the first hour, which was amazing. I’m so appreciative that I’ll be able to donate something to the Sandy Hook Support Fund! The owner and I are talking about offering up the option of an online sale, but the show will be up for another three weeks so we’ll keep you posted!
The response has been overwhelmingly positive, but to be honest, I was quite distracted by all the amazing fabric that Drygoods has available. I mean, Liberty Tana Lawn!! I am salivating…
Again, if you’re in the Seattle area, I hope you’ll be able to take a peek at my art, and I’ll post any information on making the pieces available for online sale as soon as I can. Special thanks to owner Keli, who was the consummate Art Walk party planner (extra extra thanks since it was her birthday that night!) – she’s a dynamic mover and shaker, and her shop and studio are AWESOME.
