No, not another cloth weave. While I will continue with my descriptions and details of different silk weaves, that is just one of my projects. And to give my brain a break from this is that, I thought I would outline some of my plans and upcoming events. Busy, Busy, Busy.
So far this year, Damask Raven is confirmed vending at Hot Raqs, Miss Fisher Con, and Cairo Shimmy Quake. Also plan to be vending at West-AnTir War and Great Western War. Additionally, am teaching three classes at Costume College. So this is shaping up to be a very busy year.
And on top of vending plans, I am learning to make patterns, hopefully soon to be on sale everywhere Damask Raven vends, and learning to digitize embroidery, for that perfectly matched trim. And because I feel I’ve been neglecting my blogging here at Damask Raven, I set myself the task of writing one blog post a day from two days ago until Hot Raqs. Now, that isn’t entirely selfless. One of the classes at Costume College is a class on different silk weaves. By writing the posts, I’m prepping myself for that class. And hopefully sharing some knowledge along the way.
So I am juggling. A lot. And learning a lot. Pattern making is new to me, and once I get the hang of it, I’m looking forward to a series of blog posts highlighting my progress. With the thirty seven posts in thirty seven days I set myself, I will probably start that soon, as it is a learning process and curve. And continuing to show off the Baby Lock, although I’ve decided to speed up the lessons a bit with that. Also have to keep up with stain removal and the Folly of Dry Cleaning Everything. So more posts to come, and I will try to mix it up, so as not to bore everyone with this is that blog posts.
