Buckman Art Show + Sell This Weekend ~ March 9 & 10

This weekend, March 9 & 10 is the 29th Annual Buckman Art Show + Sell, a fundraiser for arts education at Buckman Arts Focus Academy.

Buckman Art Show + Sell

There will be 120+ artists, student art (my favorite), free art activities for kids, food trucks, and more.

I’ll be bringing lots of pouches, wristlets, handbags, and other goodies featuring new fabrics.

Also, I’ll have Easter-themed treat bags to fill with candy and felt bunnies that make a great addition to someone special’s Easter basket.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

I’ll have lots of these vinyl cardholder/wallets! They are perfect if you are going out and just want to bring your ID, some cash or a credit card. I use one to keep all my preferred and frequent shopper punch cards together in my purse. They would also be great for business cards!

devon_collageI’ve also been working on a lot of these double zip pouches! Since I took these pictures I have added detachable wristlet straps to the pattern, making these a convenient small purse.

Hope to see you there!
