The Creative Cookie is happily continuing our crafty collaboration with the Queens Library which began in September 2012. Since, we've presented 40+ workshops to some cool kids in the County of Queens. Our 1st sessions of 2014 start this week during Spring Break (yippee!). If you know a tween in Queens, email me, we'd love to invite them to come stitch with us during our Smarty Pants Upcycling workshops!
All classes start at 4p and the dates and Libraries are as follows:
Lefferts Library 4/14 + 15
Rego Park Libray 4/16 + 23
Windsor Park Library 4/17 + 22
Come learn to make a purse or tote by recycling old clothes!
My wonderful husband, kamau ware, is showcasing his photography alongside our dear friend photographer Kamau Z. Akabueze at the Sweet Lorraine Gallery. The Gallery is located in the same building as our shared studio in Red Hook, Brooklyn. EXPOSED, the exhibition's title, is a magical monochrome encounter with physical, natural, and interpersonal landscapes. It's also an upclose and personal look at two friends who have lots in common which gives the show just the right amount of whimsy -- a must see!
I'll be hosting special gallery hours this weekend -- email me to schedule a time to visit:
Friday 3/28 2:30p - 6p
Saturday 3/29 by appointment only
Sunday 3/30 2:00 - 6p
It would be awesome to walk you through their show, please come by and support two of my favorite guys!
In November, we opened Warehouse Gallery + I finished writing my 1st book, Sew Fab. Sew Fab is a guide on sewing, fashion, and style for budding fashionistas. When my publisher recommended Sabine Pieper to illustrate the book and I looked at her work for a few seconds and said, "ABSOLUTELY, she's brilliant!". I'm sew lucky to have my words alongside her high fashion illustrations and now our work hangs together on the walls of Warehouse too! We each have pieces in the current exhibition, Suit. I have 3 bow ties from my forthcoming line of neck-wear, Tye, and Sabine has 3 pieces from her amazing portfolio, one is below.
Today is the closing of Suit at Warehouse and I'd love to make an artsy proposition to Creative Cookie followers...
The 1st 3 readers to purchase one of Sabine's prints or one of my ties will get a signed, advanced, copy of Sew Fab once it's off the presses! You can have both of us on your bookshelf, your wall, or maybe even around your neck.
I invite you to collect some fab art and be apart of our story, after all it is Women's History Month!! Email me or leave a comment below for size and pricing details. You can also attend the closing reception this eve, 8-10p! xo
