This is a shamelessly commercial post about where you can find fabulous hand-made goods of all sorts in the Atlanta area in the next month.
First, the annual Fiber Art Sale at Southeast Fiber Arts Alliance (SEFAA). This sale keeps getting bigger and better and features some of the finest fiber artists at work in the Atlanta area (including, ahem, yours truly). That's my bead-embroidered cuff in the ad below.
The sale will be held at the SEFAA Center, 1705 Commerce Drive NW, Atlanta 30318, on Saturday Nov. 7 (11-5) and Sunday Nov. 8 (12-4). A silent auction featuring pieces donated by artists will run Saturday 11-1. Among the items up for bid is a week at Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts, a one day workshop with fashion innovator Alabama Chanin. . . and the cuff pictured above!

The following weekend, Nov. 13-15, we are holding our third annual Alpharetta Art and Fine Craft Show at our home. Seven other artists will join Sam and me, offering original pastel paintings, classic black and white photographs, unique handcrafted jewelry, handwoven items to wear, home-canned yummy produce, and beautiful hand-crafted pens. There is truly is something for everyone and at every price point. And it's always a bit of a house party, with friends, food, laughter and art talk flying around. Consider this your invitation to just come and hang out!
