I volunteered at the  

Spring Best of the Northwest Art and Fine Craft Show
7400 Sandpoint Way NE, Building 102N, Seattle, WA 98115

The last day is today, March 29, 10am-5pm.  If you have never been to this show then you must go!!  It is some of the best collection of handmade art in our area.  I had so much fun booth sitting as the artists took short breaks to refresh themselves.  There are some great presentations and a Tesla outside for car enthusiasts to view up close.

It is a must see!!!!

  • 110 artists showcasing the finest art and craft in the Pacific Northwest
  • Artist Demonstrations on both days
  • Art4Kids table for your budding young artist
  • Basket of Art giveaways
  • Delicious food and beverages by local vendors
  • Free parking

Don't make me say I told you so!!

March 26th, 2015

We are back from our trip and had lots of fun shopping for gem stones and Pendelton wool.  Now it is time for me to get back to work.

I'm working on applications for summer and fall festivals.  Preparing pictures to submit for juried entries takes some time, but it is very important.  

GOOD NEWS!!!  I have been invited to participate in the Arts North Studio Tour on September 12 and 13th.  I'm one of five artists that will be featured at one studio included in the tour.  More information to follow as we get closer!!

The new gem stones and wool should help to round out my offerings.  Here is an example of a few items I have or will be adding to my shop shortly.

 I also enjoyed knitting as we drove through the  beautiful country side.  I have some new scarves I'll be adding to my shop as well.  

Wait until you see some of the new greeting cards I'll be selling at my summer booths.  Some of you may have seen a few of these pictures on my Artfully Ann's Facebook page.  The Southwest is such a beautiful place.

Well, it is back to work...or play... for now.  Please keep in touch.  Check out Artfully Ann's Etsy page as there is always something new.

Bye for now!
