The Scarf Moment adds a bit of color to your life

I had been collecting vintage fabric for ages when I finally decided to start making scarves a few years ago. Sewing is in my blood. My grandmother was a seamstress and her father was a tailor.

I’m an artist but I’m not very disciplined when it comes to making art. Making scarves started out as a practice to develop a work discipline. It worked. Now I make scarves in the fall and art in the spring. The vintage fabrics I use have printed or woven patterns. I back those fabrics with solid color fabrics, so the creativity is in the selection of backing fabrics. I have a good eye for color.

The best thing is going out searching for fabric at estate sales and yard sales. The worst thing is sewing velvet. It’s so difficult to sew.
