I first came across this talented artist when I first moved to the states. Her work is so refreshing and I love her use of thread, stitch style and fabric that construct each piece she makes.
Here is a snippet from her website plus some pictures for you to enjoy:
“Using thousand and thousand of fabrics and threads to create her ideas in her Brooklyn workshop, Tamar Mogendorff’s world is populated with swans, bears and mushrooms carefully made by her fairy fingers. The originality of her creations is in the choice and assembly of the fabrics from gaudy to the precious, the subtle or solid.”
I shall be at Renegade craft fair this weekend in San Francisco with some new work. This is the third Renegade Show in S.F and it’s always fantastic. There are so many wonderful crafts to see and buy, you will not be disappointed should you decide to check it out. I shall be sharing a booth with the lovely Sally Waters who is the genius behind Birdy Botanicals, look out for us our booth number is 137!
“Nina & Tom” are one of the retailers that stock some of my hair accessories, they have organised an Indie Craft Fair in Downtown Davis outside their brick and mortar store on Saturday March 6th starting at 11am. I shall be joining them and I am excited as this will be my first fair this year! I have never been to Davis so I am happy about finally going there and meeting some other crafters and checking out Nina & Tom’s store, they have a great line of T-shirts which are all produced locally, all the design’s are their own and dyed and printed in-house. The most famous for me is” This Mama is for Obama” , I saw this tee often sporting around my neighbourhood.
So in time for this Saturday’s show I have made up new sets of coasters in this yummy new felt I just received and I am almost finished making another batch of new clutch bags, there will be lots of Hair accessories too!
Check out Nina and Tom’s blog for more information, hope to see lots of people there.
