Of Cameos and Yarn<< All Articles
I finally found my way to a little shop that has been recommended to me by several people who know I collect cameos. My good friend, Mary Lou Carney, and others, all knew I would love this place, and they were right! Monica Beth Fowler of Delectable Collectables, in Micanopy, FL, was an absolute delight–a soul sister, with about 1,500 cameos in her shop. Of course, I couldn’t leave without taking one or two home with me.
I loved learning more about cameos from Monica. One of the pieces she showed me is called a mourning cameo. They could be either double-sided, with one side of the cameo an image of the deceased, or it could include a place to store a snip of hair. I found that to be so sad!
Wayne and I arrived in Columbus, OH, a day early, so I have a chance to settle in and get my bearings here at the National Needle Arts Association (TNNA) before things get hectic. Because TNNA is for shop owners, designers, yarn companies, etc., I’ll be able to get the scoop on the new yarns and colors for fall and winter.
I’ll be back in my Port Orchard office on Monday. I can hardly wait!
