Virtual Market Places

Sacramento Center for the Textile Arts

It seems like all the handcrafted artisan shows are now online. The newest phrase is contactless shopping. This year has been extremely hard on artists, but many are learning new online ways to sell their art. Since COVID-19 has made it impossible to hold our annual in-person show and sale, we have shifted to a digital platform to promote our talented members. You can now shop on the 2020 Art to Wear & More virtual marketplace for one-of-a-kind holiday gifts made by local Sacramento Center for the Textile Arts artists. Are you looking for special clothing and accessories to wear, one-of-a-kind jewelry pieces, unique gifts, or home fashions? Look no further. Now instead of just 2 days to shop, there will be more than 2 months. It’s open for shopping right now!

Visit October 24, 2020 through January 31, 2021. Browse each artist’s listing to see examples of their and my work. I will be participating in the Art to Wear and More Virtual Marketplace! I hope you connect with these amazing artists during this holiday shopping season.

My Color Process

Shop for my new line of bags, scarves, and wearables. My style is Boho Bohemian. I like to make items with geometric patterns and designs. I use a variety of fabric types and textures. I use mixed and matched pieces of upholstery fabrics with texture when designing purses, and a variety of beads, glass and gems for my jewelry designs. Check out the way I come up with my color and design process in this short video
