Today was the Fiber Artists of San Antonio's annual wearable art runway show, and it certainly didn't disappoint. There are many wonderful, talented designers in this city. The final piece in the show was a surprise from Master of Ceremonies Michael Quintanilla, who created a gorgeous bridal gown, complete with headdress and bouquet, entirely from old newspapers!
It was truly a sight to see. Another of my favorite pieces in the show was my friend, Pat Schulz,
beautiful (and LONG) boa, constructed from used Olay facial washcloths that had been dyed by Laura Pitts. I'm in the process of making a quilt with them, so I was thrilled to see how beautiful they looked in this construction. What a fun day! Fiber Artspace had a table in the sale room, which was fun. I put together some moleskins that are embellished with various things, including a few that have a cool image of my mid-1940's era parents.
