New "wayward threads" using sari ribbon
My friend Joanne took my "wayward threads" class at Art Unraveled and had brought some sari ribbon I was very attracted too. She was able to give me the contact info where I could purchase some and I did so immediately after I got back home from the conference. So here is my version and you can see Joanne's version here.
Would love to hear what you think of this!
My sister and I have a joke about this. When I first met Nina Bagley at Art & Soul at Asilomar she was interested in some of my dyed fabrics. She wanted pieces that she could tear into strips. I proceeded to show her pieces that were "tearable" , insuring her they were "tearable" but she was laughing at me saying "Listen to yourself, are they really "terrible"? I don't think so" And now I'm making these stoles using "sari" (read sorry) ribbons" that are "tearable" (read terrible). Now I ask is this a good marketing scheme? LOL!
BTW I have ordered some vintage saris that I plan to tear into strips myself , if I can bring myself to do so after I get them.
