Fiber Arts Fiesta

The Albuquerque Fiber Arts Fiesta 2009 is the seventh biennial show dedicated to fiber arts education and to the display of fiber-related artwork. The Designer’s Lounge was asked to participate in one of the three Fashion Shows that are put on by the American Sewing Guild (ASG). I found the Fiber Arts Fiesta to be very inspirational in colors, techniques and creativity. Thank you Melissa Sonnen for asking us to be a part of this exciting event!!

Fashion Show Imbibe

This collection was inspired by the Art of Dress, measuring-tapes, pins and needles, buttons and pin-cushions were all used in celebration of the great designer’s and seamstresses of our time. The designs were feminine yet flirty and the color pallet was black and white with accents of pink (such as our logo).

There was a great turn out and we had a lot of fun! Thank you to Imbibe for having us. Thank you to Buzz Networking ABQ for asking us to participate. Thank you to all the little helpers and thank you to the fabulous models! ♥ ♥ ♥

Happy Mothers Day!!

On Mother’s Day I took Mom to the Quilt and Wine festival in Corrales, it was a lovely day! I’m not a quilter, but I was truly amazed by all the work, patience and creativity that went into these fabulous works of art!
