Now! That Was An Interesting Meeting!

If you walk into your Fiber Artists meeting and see color everywhere--you know it's going to be a good day! That was such the case at the monthly meeting for Houston Association of Fiber Artists  (HAFA).  Our speaker was Sherrill Kahn and a live wire she is!  Her samples were spread out on the counter top for anyone to touch, analyze and learn from.  And then the program began.................................
Full length of her samples


Sherrill uses household items to achieve multi looks


And she is so giving with her talent and knowledge of surface design techniques



She has written several books on these various techniques



She was wearing this lively vest

Her jewelry

Stamped, dyed, painted, shaped and worn

The front of her vest


This was a white sweatshire that she cut down the middle, dyed, painted, stamped--you name it, Sherrill did it

Another sweatshirt


Very little embellishment with sewing machine--she declares she is not a sewer!

And she even decorates her buttons--plain buttons turned into art pieces!
Sherrill owns Impression Me Now company that makes rubber stamps.  They are now making these large sheets of stamps that can be cut apart and used separately or use as a whole

Fabulous designs created for you so you don't have to!
Well, I just had to get her latest book--I see some surface design techniques in my future!!
