What a fabulous creative year 2015 has been for me!
I had the opportunity to show my art in some wonderful juried events.
Starting last May with being the featured artist at The New Zone Gallery in Eugene. It was so great meeting folks and getting wonderful feed back on my work. So humbling.
I taught numerous workshops ranging from baskets to pendants in Oregon and California.
My friend Jean Koon showed me how to make pine needle evening bags. I made three of them and sold all three! More to come for sure. The nex one will b for me.
One of my workshops was just out of Yosemite and at the Valentines Reserve in Mammoth Lakes California. What a great bunch of creative gals they were.
Spreading this creative process has been a joy and am looking forward to teaching many more classes this coming year.
I just scheduled workshops at the Eugene Textile Center which I will be posting soon.
My etsy page is slowly getting more hits and selling.
Happy coiling everyone and Happy New Year,
Your friendly basket case,
Sheri Smith Holgate

I recently sold this piece "Swirl" at The New Zone Gallery in Eugene, OR. I emailed the woman who purchase it to thank her for choosing my work among so many amazing pieces. This is the response I received. http://sheripineneedles.blogspot.com/

Everyone had a good time learning a new skill, and of course getting to know each other while we worked on a basket.
I had the chance to spend time with Donna, who has been friends with me through facebook for a while now. Bardee, a friend I have known for years was also there and we got to catch up on old friends. The two 14 year old twins, were amazing and came up with new stitches as the day went on.
Molly, who has come to a few of the workshops came by to weave with us with her usual wonderful energy.
All in all another positive fun, creative day! Yah :}

Last Night was the First Friday ArtWalk in
Eugene, where I was a featured artist along with three others at Harlequin Beads & Jewelry.
Family, friends and new faces were there to cheer me on and admire my work.
I had a sign up sheet for people who were interested in taking a workshop and had many
people sign it!
I was asked what inspires me.
Well sometimes it is a combination of colors, like last night this women had on a beautiful Purple pair of pants with a lime green shade of blouse.
It can be something as simple as that. Color, Shape, texture, technique. So many options, so little time.
I guess I better get off the computer and start a new project..............................................!!!
