Materials for the Arts!

I LOVE going to this place…a huge warehouse in no-name Queens. You trudge through several dismal¬†hallways and turn a corner to find–gasp–THOUSANDS of weird and useful and useless things, all waiting for some artist or teacher to see their fabulous potential. Next time I go I’ll take more pictures, but this time around I was focused on…


Rolls and rolls of amazing textures, colors, patterns, weights. How many dresses was I inspired to make after running my hands over all this weave? So good.


Here’s my cohort, Rebecka, helping me lug out possibilities with an ever hopeful “you’re either going to love this or hate it…”


And how could I get away without snapping up some shots of these beauties? Thank you, MFTA.
