Sticks-a-GoGo Art Cloth Welcomes The Bokeh Collection

Here at sticks-a-gog0 Art Cloth, I am pleased to introduce the collaboration between our current collection with the Bokeh Collection. These two collections work together creating an aesthetically pleasing art form. An art form viewed on fabric for the discerning sewist/designer.

Along with the new collection, I am excited to be a part of the Shutterfly/Spoonflower collaboration.

Fashion Plate Designs

What began as printing cellphone images on fabric, has developed into my own clothing line. I am thrilled to use fabric from the sticks-a-gogo Art Cloth collection in conjunction with garment design.

The first in the collection is a T-shaped coat featuring sticks-a-gogo Art Cloth Frosty Morning, Vintage Landscape and Ornaments On A Tree.

Viewing The World Through A Different Lens

In previous blog posts, I’ve mentioned using the lens of my cellphone camera to record my narrative in images absent of words. My visual diary is not hidden in a book locked with a key, its present for all to see.

My story is told to a wider audience through surface design on fabric. For me, it’s gratifying to share my talent to the world looking for an informed collective that appreciates my talent .

After researching various resources for print on demand, I selected Spoonflower for this endeavor. I’ve participated in design competitions with Spoonflower, but have not won, yet! My designs do not look like everyone else’s, and it’s a good thing because my visual diary stands apart from the rest. I like being unique…

Some of This

My special place for creativity consists of books, yarn and fabric. I don’t favor one over the other because color, texture, and print are wonderful companions for me and each other.

Recently, I finished knitting a Long Cardigan designed by Jane Yu found in Noro Magazine Issue 15. Noro’s bouclé yarn, Kanzashi, creates a bouclé fabric reminiscent of the Chanel Jacket. Bouclé yarn is an uneven yarn of three plies one of which forms loops at intervals. Hence, French meaning “to curl.”

My long cardigan compliments the Cher Knit Dress by Style Arc Patterns. I’ve recently discovered Style Arc Patterns from Australia.

Surface Design

Here at sticks-a-gogo Art Cloth studio, the new year brought on a flurry of activity.  Many new ideas, opportunities and abundance of possibilities expand the focus of our creative space.

Sunflower on a Telephone Line, is the first Art Cloth design of 2021 entered into a competition with Spoonflower.  The competition is for licensing the design for Spoonflower packaging.

I am fascinated with the art of Vincent Van Gogh and his Sunflowers.
