Inspiration comes in many shapes and forms. My latest inspirational trek was to the Paducah Quilt Festival this past weekend.  Aisle upon Aisle was filled with inspiration whether it was a finished quilt, fabric, thread or mountains of books.  This is truly the motivation capital of the quilting and sewing world. If you never been to Paducah this is a ...

January 15, 2010 in Style

I recently spent 10 days studying abroad with Kent State in London and Paris. One of the highlights of the trip for me was visiting the Victoria and Albert Museum. It showcases many famous pieces of art but I was especially focused on the fashion collection. The Royal College of Art showcases their senior graduate work there and it was ...

We met because we are going to be teaching a class together at Fabric Depot in Portland this summer (look for more info here later) and we needed to ...

New York, New York

May 15, 2008 in Style

I just got back to Portland from New York. I was there for four fantastic days with my mom. It was also a very productive trip. We initially went so my mom could present her new cookbook, The Food Nanny Rescues Dinner, to IPG (the Independent Publishers Group) representatives. The purpose of presenting it to the reps was for them ...

My favorite stores

May 6, 2008 in Style

My favorite stores at the moment (not counting haute couture) consist of American Apparel, Urban Outfitters, and Forever 21. I get the most inspiration from the most simplistic designs. I think this is because I have painted all my life, and a simple garment is like a blank canvas, it is something to start with. A very wise friend of mine ...

Vegas, baby

April 8, 2008 in Style

As I write this, Allyce and I are in the airport waiting to get on a plane to Las Vegas. This is the most exiting part of my spring break; we get to model our DIYStyle designs for McCall’s Pattern Company in a fashion show at the International Textiles Expo. Over spring break we filmed more vodcast segments, caught up ...

Fashion bibles

March 21, 2008 in Style

Well, that flu bug that was going around (that I thought I had escaped!) caught up with me. I fell hard, right in the middle of prep for finals week. I lost two whole days. But the good news is I feel SO much better now, and am running off here in a bit to take an exam in Management ...
