New Name, New Opportunity

As you have probably noticed, I have changed the name of my blog. There are just too many businesses named Cameron's Creations, and when I had to pick a name for my little business, I couldn't use it. So my next choice is Cameron's Threads. It will take some getting used to, as I have used the other for so long informally. Oh well, life goes on.

After the show in Sisters, Oregon, my friend, Sandee went into a boutique carrying the purse I had given her. It happened to be one that I had made. The woman in the store wanted to know where it had come from and Sandee told her about me. (Nothing like having friends to brag about your work.) So the woman, Janet wanted to see more. Her wonderful store is called Ma Valise. She buys things outright from artists to sell in her store, and bought 2 purses and 3 scarves from me. I was quite pleased. (It is still hard for me to believe that people like my work. Is that a woman thing?) We began talking about First Wednesday, a time when stores downtown do special little things for customers, and provide entertainment and refreshments in order to get people to come down to shop. Janet asked me if I would like to be her artist for First Wednesday. I told her that yes I would love to do that.

Again I had a dilemma, as I had very few things left after the Sisters show, leaving things in the gallery, giving things to friends, etc. So I have been producing like mad. But pressure sometime helps the creative juices, we'll see. These are some of the vests and jackets I have made for First Wednesday. This one has striped black and gray crinkled silk lining, collar and hood. It looks better than the pictures show.

  1. You have been very busy. Off course I am drawn to the pink and orange one. Congratulations on the latest gallery/shop to take your work and good luck with the First Wednesday.

  2. What a great opportunity to be involved with First Wednesday! I hope it brings you lots more success and congratulations on your new sales. I will update my link for your new address. xx

  3. These are really gorgeous and I'm sure they look even better irl. Where is this new gallery located? In Sisters? Bend? Salem? That is so cool that your business has really taken off. Your arms must be growing very strong with all that felting! It looks as though you have a lot of creative juices flowing right now so I'm glad you are able to make the most of it. Galleries are definitely the place for your work. People must see these.

  4. Thank you Sue, Julie and Jan for your wonderful comments and support. They are very much appreciated.
