ADDED 10/15/12 : Rhinebeck Style photo shoot project returns this year, 2012 to the Ny Sheep & Wool Festival. Stop by and strike a pose. DETAILS HERE
added 10/10/11 **PLEASE NOTE: THIS IS FROM LAST YEAR, 2010 !!
I'm not doing the photo thing this year, 2011, but maybe next? I WILL be at Rhinebeck, but this year I'll be a civilian, and booksigning for my new book Craft Activism, 2:30-4 on Saturday and 11-12:30 on Sunday, in the authors barn. Stop by & say hi! (I'm a bingo square too).
as for the photos--I hope, I may, get to edit & post them before they are officially one year old. Its a crazy life!
So..here's my little brainstorm. Last year I dragged my white backdrop to the Common Cod Fiber Guild's indie knitwear design fashion show in Boston, and see what happened. (it's 2 1/2 minutes long, sorry it's a bit of a slow loader- and there's music , so hit your mute key if you're at work or near sleeping babes)
The wonderful organizers of the New York Sheep & Wool Festival folks are giving me a space to set up my backdrop at Rhinebeck this weekend and you (and you and you and you.....and your alpaca too) are invited to pose for me. Show me what.you.got!
For years I've been thinking it's a shame not to document all the fine fibery fashion seen at that fair and I decided this is the year to do it. Where else can we wear so many layers of handknit & feel like part of the community?
Weather permitting I'll be there for sure Saturday and probably Sunday monring too. I'll tweet my location so follow my twitter feed & you'll know where I am--or else look for a white backdrop.
Fun, yes? See you in your wooolly best. I can't begin to tell you how much I'm looking forward to this. My talented friend & trusted co-conspirator Maryse is helping me out for a while, if anyone else who knows how to wield a reflector wants to hang out and volunteer for an hour, I would be super grateful, just shoot me an email.
