Lee Ann Wahi, Pure Serendipity – Fabric creations made from delightful curiosity and unexpected luck! Depending upon my mood and the fabric, a sit-down at my sewing machine could turn out bowls, mobiles, sun brims or table toppers. The common thread, however is that they are all made by wrapping thin strips of 100% cotton fabric around and around a length of cotton-poly clothesline. Then, with a zigzag stitch on the sewing machine, I wind and mold the cord into the desired shape. Call it upscale or recycle, I use fabric leftover from my many seeing and quilting projects over the years. Additionally, pieces from gently loved belts and jewelry are used for handles and embellishments. Learn more at: Pure Serendipity!
Mai Vang, The St. Paul Eggroll Queen – Mai and her family will be cooking up a storm! If you want to pre-order egg rolls for pickup, click Egg Rolls! and message Mai.
