The Raffia is Here!

I’ll be at Lampscapes on Wednesday morning sewing shades to top & bottom rings.

More Art Shade Making on Wednesday.

This is the stuff I’ve been waiting for! It’s raffia (a/k/a raphia), a wide paper-like thread made from palm fronds. These are the colors I ordered, so I’ll be making origami shades with colored stitching for the first time ever — maybe ever in the history of humankind! Hope you’ll visit on Wednesday morning to watch my ongoing lamp fine art shade-making in progress. Lampscapes is at 77 Gates St. in White River Jct., VT. Hope to see you for another illuminating day!
