This is the season for Craft Shows and Art Fairs.  And they are, thankfully, indoors since it is getting a bit chilly out.  My schedule is:

HandmadMN Fall Market 10am to 5pm Oct 22nd at the Ballentine VFW at the corner of Lyndale and Lake St in Minneapolis. 

St Philip's Holiday Market (they don't have a link just for the show) 9am to 3pm Nov 5th at St Philip's Church at 6180 Highway 65 NE, Fridley, MN.

Handmade Arts from the Heart  9am to 4pm Nov 12th at the Clara Barton Open School at 4237 Colfax Ave S, Minneapolis.

Women's Art Festival 10am to 5pm Dec 10th at the Midtown YWCA at 2121 East Lake St, Minneapolis.

Hope to see you at (at least) one of them.

Bands only or all over? The contrast between the solid and pattern can make the pattern stand out more while the all over pattern can have a big impact. An example of Mokume Shibori, but only part of the shirt was stitched up for one.
