SunCoast Arts Fest Report

January 21-22, 2017 – SunCoast ArtsFest fine art show at Wiregrass Shoppes, Wesley Chapel Florida.

I was at booth 72, in front of the Sleep Number store next to Dillards.

Saturday was a very warm, sunny day. So many people came past and stopped at my booth. As always, I hear “it’s thread?”

It helps that I had a sign made to identify thread painting  … sort of. There is no name that specifically identifies what I do. I’ll admit that I enjoy that aspect.

My observations, so far, are that men are quite interested in my work as far as the technical aspect goes: how long does it take? how much thread do you use? Any women who have been even remotely involved in quilting are quite interested, peering closely with glasses off. They are more interested in, “what stitch do you call this?” There is no answer for that.  But I enjoy talking to everyone.

The crane above was purchased by William K and his wife. I hope they enjoy their purchase and that  I see them again. My last two hummingbirds have been sold as well as several feathers. I must get to work on more hummingbirds and feathers for the next show at the Lake Wales Art Festival on February 18th.  I have a few ideas in mind.

My show list is uptodate through March. There will be one or two more shows in April and I think that will be it.

Meanwhile, my floral work will probably be moved to the Village Sampler, booth 307 where I stage some of my art and all of the vintage items I have made. That is located on Avenue B, SW at 2nd Street in Winter Haven, FL.

Have a great day! Jan
