What does this huge fabric show have to do with sketching? There are two connections. I spend the entire day at Sew Expo at the Puyallup Fairgrounds. This thing is massive, with a capitol M. People come from all over the country. The person I met who came the furthest came from Atlanta, GA!
This is the first connection: My very first stop when I arrived at 0845 was the Pacific Fabrics booth to buy 2 panels of the fabric designed by Chandler O’Leary, a Tacoma Artist. There was no one at the booth yet and so I had no waiting! She’s also an Urban Sketcher and has a wonderful blog about her travel sketches, Drawn the Road Again.
Here is a photo, taken later, of the panel and a couple closeups:
The second connection is this fabric, which looks to me like a watercolor palette! I wasn’t going to buy any more fabric, but this was just too perfect!
See my photo host for more… and the Million Pillowcase challenge. I added 13.
