Craft Boston

Two of us were at the Craft Boston show over the weekend. Wow, lots of good stuff. We met author and jewelry artist Joanna Gollberg (who had a booth). I would scan a pic of some of her work, but since EP has stolen my book, I can't.

Lots of jewelry. I mean lots. All of it was nice and VERY well done, but still. I was loving the metal and pearl combinations, and by the end was enamoured of the chains too. There was a fair amount of dyed silk and women's tops as well. I like dyeing fabric, but apparently other people do as well.

The rest of the stuff had plenty of variety. This guy had the most amazing furniture. The end tables looked like melted chess boards.

Only one person had any paper items (other than the book publisher). Handmade books are something we'd like to try, and haven't seen too much of. I'm not sure how expensive it was to get into the show though, because a lot of booths had more "art" and less "craft" (judged by prices) and someone selling journals or photo albums might not make enough to cover booth rent.

There were several quilt artists, but most had either traditional style quilts often in miniature, or with a modern slant. There was one with some framed fabric pieces, and one that was fairly abstract.
