Sew Expo

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.
