Next weekend is my NY Trunk Show at Bebenoir Boutique in Harlem so I've been spending the the past few weeks getting bags ready. Usually I like to have at least 30 bags to showcase for sell and I'm a little over half way to that goal with about 1.5 weeks left to finish. Needless to say, I'll be sewing all day every day until next Saturday! :) The great thing about my trunk shows is that I have a lot of bags there I don't post online..so people usually like that. I'm also planning to do some video footage of the event so stay tuned for that as well! I'm really excited about it!
I usually work in pure madness...meaning fabric, leather and notions all over the place. I like to see fabrics and color laid out all around me... for some reason it helps me come up with designs. Also because I have soooo much fabric...sometimes I'll forget about some pieces if I don't physically see it laying around. Check it out....And this is the neater part of my workroom. I dare not show you the entire space...lol
My plan is to journal each day a little about my preparation the week leading up to each event I do. And just a reminder, here are some of my upcoming events and dates:
