Second First Saturday for SFFS at The Chicken Farm Art Center

 Sue's Fiber&Fabric Studio is READY for it's Second First Saturday at The Chicken Farm Art Center!  Yesterday..Friday March 3rd...was 'Gettin' Er Ready' day, and believe me I was 'Shakin' My Shamrocks'...after all, I AM 29% Irish!  The other 71% Mutt was tail waggin' to keep up with all the 'GREEN Goin' On'.  How bout it...Lads and Lassie's...wanna a tour?

Well, come on in!!!!
The studio is a whopping 16x16 ft. space, and even though a Wee Bit small compared to my last shop, it sure beats my former space at The Chicken Farm....a 10x10 Pink Tent!  Just steps inside the door your first view is the center of the room cutting table with the 'Make An Apron' display.  On the left is the Clutter Counter...cause I'm a Clutter Bug and want You to buy my 'Clutter Stuff'.  Oh, and behind the counter you will want a closer look at my 'Funky Chicken Row by Row Quilt'.  I'll get that picture for you later.  Right now, please turn to your left and face the back wall....
Whoa!  It's my Irish Apronistas...Modella and Maneykin..'Wearin' O' the Green'!  Oops, looks like Maneykin's slip is showing.  To her right is the display of Rag Rugs, Baskets, Microwave Bowl Warmers and Thread Clutter...baskets full...need some thread!  Now, please step back to the cutting table and check out the Apron Fabric and the front window corner...
About the 'Make An Apron' display...I'm still pushing patterns and kitchen fabrics for folks to make their own...that POST...HERE.  Of course...if you want a custom made apron...I'm your Lassie!  And...you can choose other fabrics from  'The Fabric Wall'...there on your right!  Oh, and there's more fabrics here....
TaDa!!!  How about a closeup of some of my favorite fabrics...can't believe I'm parting with it!
 
Thank-you so much for coming through my door!

Your shop looks great. I hope to see it next December, when I'm in town.

You have realy set up your place in style. So neat and well organized. No doubt it will be an eye catcher.

Joanne said...

Your place delights the eye and no doubt has folks wanting to poke around and dig for "finds". Oh the wearin' o' the green - you've got the spirit (or Modela does!)

DECEMBER!!! That's way to far off. You need to come during Bluebonnet Blooming...that'd be in just a month or so...besides, I didn't get to see you when you were here a few months ago. Anyway, if you see anything you want in my shop...like the sewing fabrics...there's the internet and shipping shopping!

Sue McPeak said...

Thanks LV. I'm having fun setting up and organizing my clutter. Thanks for visiting...I've missed you on Pink Saturday!

Sue McPeak said...

Yes, ever since my DNA came back 29% Irish, I've been making up for all the years I didn't know I was Irish...so that makes Modella Irish, too. Funny you should mention folks digging in the fabric...a customer did that yesterday! It was worth it for her and me!

Sue McPeak said...

Thanks Dora! I have been busy with the shop and sewing! Having so much fun! Thanks for stopping by.

That's one cool little shop! Seeing material always makes me think I want to sew. LOL But truth be told, it is a skill mother taught me, but not one I particularly enjoy.

Thanks Barbara...seeing material always makes me want to sew, too. Problem when you have a shop full and not enough time to sew it all. Good reason to have a shop...get rid of the 'need to sew' it all.

Have never seen the bluebonnets bloom - this is on the "one day" list. I have not been in Texas since - gulp - 1977. Do you make chicken potholders? Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com

Sue McPeak said...

Oh my, you gotta come see the bluebonnets and other wildflowers! It's spectacular! I make potholders out of chicken fabric if that is what you mean. I haven't made any that are shaped like a chicken, but I have seen them...vintage!

Wendy said...

Do you think you have enough to sell? Wink wink

I love how colorful your shop is!

Sue McPeak said...

It is stuffed to the ceiling, but I am making more...aprons right now with plans for some Fiber Arts Jewelry etc, etc....not enough time to do it all, but I'm giving it a good go!
