with some favourite souls maya & britt
squam happened once again last week and i have been sewing like a madwoman for the past month (hence another long blog absence!) building my stash of handmade clothing for the art fair. unlike ever single other fair i have done i was calm and organized and left early saturday morning with my car loaded with goods to spend the night in the woods! it was such fun to meet friends there and cozy into a cabin...spending the afternoon sitting on our dock writing up my pricetags and enjoying the beautiful outdoors after being holed up in my studio for so many weeks! everything about squam is so insanely juicy and inspiring, just being there felt so good!
i was grateful to my friends for helping me set up my booth at the fair because it was CRAZY that night - this was my 4th time vending and by far the busiest, most beautiful fair yet - i barely took a breath all night and was so thrilled to see so many skirts strutting their stuff, it is really really fun to see them on people!
after the fair there was much laughter and cheese eating by the fire in our cabin until verrrrry very late, and a nice big inhale exhale day for me the next day with all the hard work over with! some more lake and woods time followd by a slow drive home (via every possible junk store) was exactly what my heart desired.
i'm more excited than ever about squam - a taproot gathering in september, where i will be teaching for the first time and getting wild with recycled clothing..!
i will be listing skirts that are available in a new *shopembers* instagram account over the weekend. you can check my facebook page for updates on when this will happen, or email me for a custom order (emilyfalconbridgeAThotmail.com)
