There were so many wonderful ideas at the show-one of the coolest new items I saw was the g2 Glass Bottle Cutter. Check out the you tube video here. This product is so cool, made from recycled aluminum and can help you recycle other products into art!
Another great thing I learned about at the show was Zentangle. It is a wonderful way to relax and create something at the same time.
These are the zentangles that were created in my class--each person is making the same basic patterns and given the same instruction, yet they all come out different. It is a wonderful exercise for people of all ages. You can give this project to a 4th grader and a 50 year old man. No matter what the results are something beautiful both aesthetically and mentally. It really gives you focus without having to follow rules. It is very liberating. Sometimes you just need to draw....and not worry what it comes out looking like. Zentangle is kind of like yoga for the mind. Check it out! Read more about the creators and get signed up for the newsletter here.
There were so many booths and so little time, but I did get around to see a lot of them. I will post more this week. I must get back to finishing the four new SR patterns (yes four!!) They will be available in March!
Happy Stitching all!
