For home sewers, businesses, retailers, and anyone who gives a scrap!
If you have a couple of hours to spare....here are a couple of audio interviews you might enjoy listening to:
KTDE's Fred Adler interviews Teresa Van-Hatten Granath and me about the Pacific gyre and Teresa's environmental art project: The Green Bag Lady.
Seeing Beyond interviews Bridgette Guzzi about her business, Gardens of California. Garden's of California is one of the businesses that uses Harmony Art fabric in their product line. In this case, she is using the fabric to create lovely garden apparel (shown above). The interview explains Bridgette's passion for gardening and journey in developing her thoughtful line.
Warning - both are lengthy interviews. Get a cup of tea and enjoy.
I spent last weekend in Nashville with the Green Bag Lady (aka Teresa). Teresa knows I don't sew so instead of helping sew the Green Bag Lady bags, she put me to work matching handles with bags. It was SOOOO much fun! I loved it. Here's an action shot of me being the "handler".
While going through the bags I came across this bag (below) made out of Bagette Dad's old pants and fell in love with it! The pockets are still intact - perfect for cell phone, nano, etc. The loops allow me to accessorize my bag with a belt to match my outfit. After begging and pleading (not really) Teresa let me keep the "pants bag". Here's a picture of me with the original owner of the pants. Goofy? Yes! Fun? Absolutely!
On Saturday afternoon we had a Bagette brunch and I got to meet some of the women who bring the Green Bag Lady project to life. They are as lovely and kind and generous and talented as you would imagine. What a great weekend! Thank you Bagettes for making me feel so welcome. xoxo harmony
