November at Makers …Trunk Shows on the Horizon!

Featured

Witness the Wonder of Color!   Trunk show November 8

Linda Nickerson and Susan Morgan bring their mutual sensibilities to their wonderfully colorful works;  Susan in quilting and Linda in glass painted ornaments.

We’ll host them both in house on Saturday, November 8 from 11:00 am till 5:00 pm.

Susan Morgan and Linda Nickerson collage

Susan Morgan (SEM Custom Designs) states that her work is aimed at promoting literacy, starting at the earliest age and in the most comfortable place… in the home.  “When one can associate warmth and love with reading, children will develop a fondness for this very basic life skill that will bring them great joy and success in the years to come.”   Snuggly readers are happy readers!

Linda Nickerson is a painter with a modern bent.  She has found a great way to apply her style to create fun and functional holiday art.  You have to see her ornaments to fully appreciate the play of bright colors that blend *inside* the blown glass balls.
Whimsical and delightful and utterly collectible!

Local / New Artists in house at Makers Connect

Featured

Local.  East Dallas.  Artisans.  Crafters.  That is the core of how we started, so why aren’t we celebrating the artists more?  Looking back at some posts on this site we realized we needed to do a better job!  So here goes.

It has been too long we’ve been concentrating on classes but in the interim, some very interesting artists have been knocking on our doors and quietly sneaking into our sphere – the result is that MakCon is slowing morphing from a sweet fuzzy duckling into a full blown, gorgeous Goose!

Check out a few of our new faces and help us to welcome the work of Jeff Barrett, Andrea Smith, Elaine Glasscock, Rachel Cabal, Kelley Vaughan, Susan Morgan, Lottie Minick, Audrey Legatowicz, Kimberley Moore, and Martha Mabry!!  A few now, a few in the next post.
