No…….. I am not taking my pieces to Pearson airport … hahah. That would be dangerous now wouldn’t it.:)

Instead I have an amazing opportunity to showcase my summer pieces two months from to day in a arts and entertainment showcase highlighting local and underground talent in Toronto. Save that date if you are in Toronto: June 23rd, 7pm. Details below in the link.

Excited, nervous and driven. Possibilities, possibilities and more possibilities. But also fun and more fun. I have been planning since January end after my application was accepted. So now I am in sew mode and making those pieces and working with my amazing friends who are volunteering there time to be models on this special occasion.

My friends and family have been very supportive and have come along side me so far in many ways as I prepare for this event. Whether they are the show music director, volunteer models, back stage help, selling at my booth, fabric store runs, brainstorming ideas or just offering encouragement and support. They have been amazing, near and far!

As part of my participation in this event I am required to sell tickets via a guest list that will be created under my name as an artist. Tickets are $20. and can only be purchased online!

Here is the link if you are interested in supporting me in this event: Please ensure before you purchase that under selected artist is Amshinaapparel!

Thank you all in advance. I look forward to seeing you there as well as sharing the next two months of adventure sewing and preparations with you!

Stay tuned!

Bless

Honeymoon fabulousness!!

I said yes!!!!!!!! and had a beautiful summer wedding down in Guyana this August! 🙂  (No I didnt make my wedding dress.. 🙂 ) That would have been overly ambitious of me… But I am sure if I had given much thought to it I could have pulled it off.. 🙂

That would explain my inconsistency in blogging. My apologies.. A good sewing hiatus excuse. However You better believe it I was sewing right up to the day before I left. I had three projects to complete for a friend and I figured I could make a quick little something for myself. Here it is my fabulous maxi skirt that I wore my last day on Honeymoon!!

I was originally going to make a dress but with the short time I had, I could only muster up a skirt so here goes. It can be converted to a maxi dress which I wore to the pool after that same day. Making it a two outfit day.

If there was ever a piece I felt fabulous in this is definitely one of those! I was feeling myself can you tell. It was a flowy coolness for the Caribbean weather  that day coupled with my hat, bag and tank accessorized it well.  Here are a few shots throughout the day of me and the skirt.

Off to the city….
