SCAD Fibers Portfolio Exhibition

Last week marked the end of the school year for our area’s biggest local college, The Savannah College of Art and Design. Which means, that although things are slowing down in our shop, we got to go to see all of the beautiful work that students have been slaving away for, much of it with supplies acquired from our store!

Both Paige and I are graduates of the Fibers program at SCAD, so getting to see all the student’s work and catching up with all of our old professors is always fun times! We are probably going to do a Part 2 post later on this week because there was so much amazing work, and we have a lot of pictures to sort through!

The colors that Alison uses in her work are what caught my eye at first. They are so magical and feminine that her pieces made me feel like I was seeing bits out of a fairytale.

We loved Caitlin Henry’s style, and the many cool techniques she used on this surface embroidery piece. She works in a variety of mediums and has a lovely little blog and website that I encourage you to check out!

Love this pretty beaded cake by Adrienna McDermott! She also had this really beautiful beaded curtain that I want about ten of for my future dream home. You can see more of Adrienna’s work on her website.

And finally some knit work! Madeline is a great knitter and a loyal customer in our shop. She makes all kinds of exciting knit stuffs. I couldn’t get pictures that I thought did her work justice, but you can check her out on Behance right here. The piece below is actually a throw blanket!

We have a lot more grad work to show you in our Part 2 post! Check back, and check out all the ladies’ websites to see more of their portfolios!

Sweet Stash Bags

Paige and Emma have been hard at work constructing and stitching these sweet little stash bags! They are the perfect accessory for carrying around your crafty tidbits. Emma uses hers for her scissors and embroidery supplies, and Paige tends to fill them up with left over yarns and other little knitting notions. They will soon be for sale in our shop, and hopefully online (once we get our Shopify set up). Who doesn’t love something handmade to carry around their crafty supplies?

I love the soft and pretty color palette we are using for our new product. Its sort of fresh and vintage feeling at the same time, and the soft pink contrasts so well with the sea-foam greens. We will keep you posted on the arrival of these little sweeties in our Savannah store!
