Gifts That Tie Generations Together

Calligraphy of Scriptures for Christian School Grads.

As an artist, my passion is sewing, however I do enjoy other art forms as well and one of those art forms that I particularly enjoy is the ancient art of calligraphy and Illumination.

For the past 17 years, I’ve had the privilege of working with a small Christian school locally to provide each graduate with a scripture (chosen by the school staff) done in hand calligraphy and illuminated. This year, Dominion Academy had twelve graduates and these are the verses that I created for them.

Each verse is hand lettered. The illuminations are done in a combination of ink, dies and metallic paints.

Cortney Maddaleno sent her wedding dress to have us make a christening outfit for her daughter. The dress had lovely lace over an unusual color lining. We chose to use our "princess" style to highlight the lace. This turned out to be a rather heavy gown but truly befitting a princess.

Mary Therese Ciesielski sent her mother-in-law's fur coat to have these three bears made. There were two different furs on the coat so we absolutely had to use both furs :) ... See MoreSee Less

Allison Carr sent three wedding dresses representing three generations (Grandmother, Mother and daughter) to have this large Christmas Tree Skirt made as well as a tree topper angel.

Now, all three dresses will be part of her family tradition for generations to come. I think it is such a lovely Christmas tradition.

Amie Canfield sent some of her daughter's dance costumes (including the slippers) to have us make a bear as a dance memory for her daughter. We used the costumes for the main bear, tights for the ear and paw pads and the leather ballet slippers for the foot pads on this little bear. ... See MoreSee Less

Fairy Godmother Creations shared Tracy's Sewing Studio LLC's event.

For local artist and crafters who want to clean out their supply closets and shelves. Or for people looking for supplies. This should be a great event to participate in.
