so i've taken a couple of weeks off from blogging, but am back. and i was thinking for this week's installment of guest artist, i'd do a little horn tooting by talking about my new etsy shop
rocky mountain fibers and fabrics.
i've been selling fiber and felt from my slimpiken etsy shop and have felt it clutters my shop. i'd rather have people coming there to see my work only, so i've decided to open a second etsy shop for just fiber and fabrics from natural sources. it will be all the supplies and materials i use. i'm hoping it will bring in a little extra income between shows.
at some point i'd like to start listing dyed fiber and fabric.
so if you've been waiting to try your hand at the fiber arts, please check out my new store for your fiber and fabric needs.

today's artist is Robyn Stephans from nova scotia, canada. robyn and i meet at the OOAK show in chicago. she too was part of the etsy pavilion. she is a fiber artist making bags, clutches, ipod cases. she take wool roving, which she has hand dyes and felts, then appliques it to her bag. i think the best part of her work is the details in the thread colors, textures, use of netting to really bring out the colors of the felt.
robyn's work can been seen at her etsy site or design a bag yourself at her website!
