SAGA Trunk show

Here is a sneak peek at the SAGA trunk show.  If you belong to a smocking group and haven't invited the trunk show, your missing some wonderful works of art.   The garments come from all over the states and it is a way we can enjoy each others work and be inspired by friends we will probably never meet.

The Attic window quilt shop cancells classes for the day of our show, pushes tables together and gives us the run of the store. They are a wonderful group of ladies and I thank them for all their help.

I think if I had to pick a favorite, it would be this rose print dress. Not the type of fabric one might pick for a smocked dress, it is so well done I think I might just have to make one.  I love how she used the pink dot fabric as the accent pieces again out of the box thinking.  The dress is so much prettier in person, wish a picture could capture it's beauty.
Not all of the items are smocked. There is wonderful needle work and white work.  Items range from dresses to pillow covers.

  1. I am green with envy. I would so love to see the trunk show. That rose dress is just so pretty. The artist did an incredible job of working with the fabrics and colors. Thanks for showing us, Nonie.
