St. Joseph Montessori School Winter Festival

A great day at St. Josephs Montessori School for their annual Winter Festival.

Getting set up . . .

 My friend, Mary Moore of Vagalume . . . beautiful nature prints,
fine sterling jewelry, forced bulb gift sets and "moore".

Some fine entertainment from the clarinet students.

2nd Annual Holiday Open House

 The 2nd Annual Holiday Open House was so much fun. 
It was elbow-to-elbow at times in a buying frenzy for holiday gifts and treasures.

Tah-dahhhh . . .

My medallion ornaments made from the pages of a 120 year old bible. 
They were a big hit and were totally wiped out by the end of the first evening.

Making some final adjustments of vintage glass ornaments.

Holiday music was provided by Kara-Mix-a-Lot, pictured above with Kraig

Friends and friend-of-friends shop and snack on munchies catered by Andrew Adams.

Thanks everyone for coming out to my holiday event. 
I am already thinking about the goodies I want to make for the next open house.

Thread Magazine - November 2010 Issue

A few weeks ago I was contacted by Ohio University's, Sandy Young, for the November 2010 issue of Thread Magazine.  Sandy was just a delight to chat with and I think she did a great job of capturing what "Hedy Regal" is about.

Check out the virtual magazine at on pages 26-29.

Hedy's Holdiay Open House

Last year I opened my home to friends and family for an evening of shopping handcrafted jewelry, gifts, holiday and home decor . . . and it was amazing, so I am doing it again this year.

I know we are all really busy this time of year so I am making it a two night event, so you can drop by whenever it is most convenient for you.

The 2nd Annual Holiday Open House is on Wednesday AND Thursday, December 1 AND 2nd, 2010 from 5-9PM.

The more the merrier, so invite your friends, too.

More information still to come, so stay tuned.

Sobo Style October Arts Market

What a beautiful day for the 3rd Sobo Style Arts Market that was held on Saturday, October 16th in Clintonville. 

Thanks to everyone for coming out and supporting our local small businesses.

Halloween Cards constructed of vintage photographs and sewn paper.

A menu of sewing services:  Private Lessons, Sewing Soirees, Classes at Sew to Speak, and custom home decor.

The Ruffle Canvas Tote bag . . . SOLD OUT.  (Eggplant ruffle bag in lower right corner of photo).  This is the fall version of the ruffle bag constructed of heavy canvas, and natural muslin with a burlap ric-rack trim.  Includes a pocket for your cell phone and keys.  Now taking orders!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE these decorative pillows.  Natural muslin, burlap, webbing and ruffles.  A little industrial, a little feminine.  Decorating isn't limited to the interior of your home . . . get a custom burlap pillow with your house number and toss on your outdoor bench.  Makes a great house-warming gift!  Now taking orders!

 The shop was just swarming with folks oohing-and-ahhing over the feed sack bags and aprons that Becky and Elaine made.

 . . . and brilliant lamp art by Claudia Curry . . . created from vintage and antique lamp parts and other tidbits like motorcycle gears and such.

Nicolle's history boxes, trays, and wall art were a hit.  So talented!

Cindy, the creator of Cindygert sweater purses and bags.  Impeccable construction and artful design.  We will miss Cindy this next year as she and her family will reside in Germany for a while.  Can't wait to see what she creates while abroad.

Heather Kramb's vintage collage jewelry? Well, who could pass that up? I HAD to snag a beautiful bracelet but only after MUCH debate over which one . . . She has an eye for the exquisite vintage gems and artfully collaborates it with crystals and buttons.

The antique creepy crawlies and animal prints that Mary brought were just perfect for
finishing one's spooky decor.

Thank you, Katie Palmer, for hosting a great event. And thanks to Crissy, Ally, and Lydia for all their help.   Special thanks to Mary Kay for the delightful lunch and ohhhhh-so-good cookies!

Lady Grey Coat Class at Sew to Speak

I adore the Colette Pattern collection . . . vintage-inspired classic womens skirts, tops, dresses, bloomers and now the Lady Grey coat.

Olde Worthington Market Day

I had so much fun at this event.  I just love the merchandising, meeting new people, catching up with old friends, networking with fellow artisans, and the joy of witnessing someone falling in love with something I made.

 Our dear friends, Dominic and Polly Policaro. 

 What a glorious fall day! 

 Reusable canvas shopping totes stencilled with fabric paint.  I love how the spray paint is a bit uneven . . . military-style.  I made these pennants with ivory, Idaho potato, and black burlap . . . I could hardly wait to hang them in the booth!  One of my favorites!

 Jewelry Display Frames; vintage frames with burlap inserts . . . good for my show display, great as a bedroom jewelry organizer.  Today, one found a home at Fritzy Jacobs in Olde Worthington, Ohio.

 Watch-part necklaces.
 Vintage Bow-tie necklaces. 
 Halloween Cards:  A fine-point Sharpie, vintage photos, and my sewing machine brought this cards to life. 

 Religious Medallion Necklaces
Special thanks to my husband for helping me get set up in the wee-hours of the morning.  Thank you friends and family for coming out and supporting my dreams.  Thank you Etsy Team Columbus for being so supportive and stopping by the booth, you gals are great!  Thanks to everyone for making this an awesome event!
