Artist Faire @ CREATE Chicago

The Artist Faire was held on Friday evening of the CREATE event.  Artists who were teaching at the event participated, as well as other artists in the area who only participated in the Faire.  The vendors skewed heavily toward mixed media/assemblage work, but most of the vendors were pleased with the outcome.
These little dye pots lead to my end-result at the Artist Faire

I'm wearing a 25"x125" cotton-viscose tissue knit scarf, hand-dyed.  It's yummy.

Judy Coates-Perez gives me a hand at merchandising.
I needed her help!

Here is the lovely Alina Mardesich, who won my donated knit scarf!
Alina was a student at CREATE, and it was such fun to get to know her.

I sold several, as well as my hand-dyed Radiance cloth.

Hard to believe she is only drinking water, isn't it?!
