Dramatic Opulence: "Virtuosa" Fabric Collection from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Hi Makers,

Do any of you LOVE going to see plays or performances?!

It's such a fun event! Getting all dressed up in a nice outfit, entering the theater and taking a seat, waiting for those red curtains to lift up and for the show to begin! From the introduction of the characters to hearing their stories be told through action or songs, the lightning, the set design, the costumes, and overall mood is just incredible, especially from a production point of view! Theater reminds us to be in the present and to be fully immersed in what's ...

Inspired by Rococo Art: Decadence Fabric Collection from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Hi Makers! 

Besides being all about fabric, are you also an "art lover?!" I'm definitely one! From an early age, my parents introduced me to many art museums near and far around the world where I had the incredible opportunity to see so many types of art. It was during this time I was introduced to the "Rococo Period." This art movement consisted of highly ornate and a extravagant style of architecture, art and music that flourished in Europe in the 18th century. I fell in-love with all of it!

As I grew older and went to art school ...

New AGF Capsules: Craftbound + Stargazer Collections from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Hi Makers! 

Hope August has been a productive month for you with summer vacations and back-to-school! :) I recently went on a trip to Yosemite in California, and came back flooded with so much inspiration to create new projects! Being surrounded by mountains and forests is amazing inspiration, just in case you need some! Luckily, fall and the holidays are quickly approaching..along with some other exciting events like bridal and baby showers, so I'll have plenty of good excuses to make some handmade gifts. 

Here at AGF, we’ve been working hard on crafting up sewing projects for you ...

#AGFMakerMonday from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Hi Makers!

Since it's Monday and I'm sure all of us can always use some motivation! Let's face it, all of us love sewing. We enjoy the entire process from start to finish, especially when we're giving our finished piece to someone we love. Sewing is part of a movement called  "slow living" which means allowing yourself time to create when you can. Sewing allows you to fully be in the moment and take life "slow." While sewing, there's no distractions. It's just you and your creative magic. There's no phones, no computers ...

AGF MYSTERY MONDAY - Can You Guess What's in The Bag? from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

 

Hi Makers, 

Ever since I can remember I love "mysteries." From reading Nancy Drew books to playing the board game "Clue" to watching that 90's tv show "Unsolved Mysteries" and Alfred Hitchcock films, I was always obsessed with trying to "solve a puzzle." I loved the challenge of trying to use hints to solve what really happened while being in suspense, and often creeping myself out! 

Luckily, this is a different kind of suspense and I hope you'll enjoy trying to figuring the clues as well. In case you missed our last "AGF Mystery Monday" giveaway, this is ...

Muse Magic: "Flower Child" Fabric Collection from Art Gallery Fabrics-The Creative Blog

Did you ever believe in magic as a child or would pretend to live in an enchanted land? When I was around seven years old, I distinctly remember watching the Disney movie “Peter “Pan” and instantly believing in fairies mainly because of the character “Tinkerbell.” It was during this time as well that I was having frequent visits by “the tooth fairy," so how could you not believe that fairies existed?! I remember that same year, I was also “Tinkerbell” for Halloween and even made my own bottle of “pixie dust” that was a little glass bottle with cork top ...
