Well I have to say Friday night was pretty stinking amazing. I was super pumped about heading out to Impresario to see Lucky Jackson’s work in the gallery. It was also the official ribbon cutting ceremony and grand opening of the store. My clutches, wallets and some other items are available for purchase there and so it was nice to support the store on such an important day.
But the highlights of the night were 1) meeting Lucky Jackson, who actually stopped me as I tried to nonchalantly sneak past her “Hey! Are you SewTara?!” (darn purple hair) 2) seeing some of her amazing pieces in person and 3) meeting Chantilly. It was truly an awesome night.
If you happen to live out that way, or head East out of Toronto you should pop into the shop. Rebecca, the owner and curator, is selling some lovely handmade items. Currently I have almost a whole shelf to myself. I went in a bit early and dropped off a new batch of items for her to carry. Good news is it’s all on display and ready to go home to happy people. Bad news is she took everything I had and now I have to get sewing all over again!
I also created a new product, some fun hair clips and about half of them are living on the check out counter.
