I've been collecting vintage fabrics for a number of years - I'm not quite sure why but they seem to evoke a connection to the past that I treasure. I was asked to be a guest artisan at the Norfolk Artisan Guild in Norfolk, CT this coming September and October. Although it seems a long way off I know the fall will be here before I know it so I got started on some inventory. I decided to use my vintage fabrics to create table runners and pillows. I also have antique buttons so I added a few here and there. Some fabrics are actual "feed sacks" that I found at the Monroe Historical Society sale. It was hard to cut them but I took a deep breath and went for it!
