Fall Bazaar

Over the weekend The Kuwait Textile Arts Association held its annual Fall Bazaar at the Sadu House. 

I didn't take a lot of pictures or buy very much but I did want to make sure I visited the Salvation Army table.  I was very pleased to hear that they were selling some of the crocheted wreaths and stockings I taught the girls at the shelter to make.  And since the first crochet session was a success, I've been asked to return for another one so will have to choose a few other projects that will be quick, simple and saleable.

Doni is sharing another Christmas Ring Ornament Series on her blog Whiskers & Wool.
So far she's made a Christmas Present Ring Ornament,

I will definitely be making some of these for the holidays.
And maybe the girls at the shelter will like them, too.
Hope you are having a terrific Tuesday.

What a fantastic ornate door!! great goodies inside to see, too. I love those bells and stars. speaking of stars, thanks for the link to Whiskers and Wools ring ornaments. Those look like great projects to sit and do while watching some t.v at night.

Tammy you look positively radiant in this photo. How wonderful that they are able to be selling something you have taught them to make. Lovely textiles. Adorable "ring" ornaments...the star is my favorite. Blessings dear...

Terra said...

Bless you and the Salvation Army for your efforts to teach the girls to make crafts to sell. The crafts look beautiful.

Pam said...

How wonderful that you were able to see the items you taught them to make actually selling. I'm sure you will select new projects that are just as successful.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours.

Dearest Tammy,
That sounds upbeat for the girls from the shelter! Such a bazaar is always interesting, you do pick up ideas as well.
Have a lovely week.

Pradeepa said...

Fantastic creations! It's great to know that you had been teaching your skills to these girls and helping them make a living.

Hindustanka said...

Tammy, this is great that you helped those girls to earn for living with the mean of such beautiful craft! Keep it up! You really inspire me to do something like this here too.
By the way, are those Indian Punjabi Juttis on the table? Is that Indian stuff?)so cool, because we have the same in our shops)
Take care! Anna

Gorgeous setting and beautiful goodies for sale.

The Christmas decorations look lovely displayed like that.

Enjoy your week.

Mary said...

Tammy dear, how lovely that you share your amazing crochet skills....and that the girls are now able to market their own creations.

This was a fun, very colorful bazaar - like the wall hangings and the slippers!

Hope your week is going well - thanks for the recent comments. Yes, got to catch Venice again before the waters get higher.....although they are working on the dam system, similar to the Thames River in London, which should help with the flooding hopefully. What a beautiful, historic city - it must be saved for posterity.

Hugs, Mary

Beautiful feast for the eyes at the bazaar. And the stockings and wreaths fit right in with all the colorful things. Thanks for sharing. Diane

Wow, a fall bazaar in Kuwait! Sounds wonderful, so full of colors, textures and more. Wonderful post.

Oh, I do love me some textiles! How intricate some of those are and truly works of art. The girls did great and so glad you are going back...I know they must have really enjoyed you taking your time and teaching them something they will carry with them forever. They did a great job....maybe I should take your class! LOL!

val said...

so neat that they had those for sale....I hope you enjoy your next session with them.

Serena Lewis said...

What a great post all round, Tammy! You look great standing beside that beautifully ornate door. I LOVE that pic with the bells and those slip-on shoes look great. I love slip-on shoes and have practically worn through the only pair of clog-type I have. It's so wonderful that the Salvo's table were doing well and selling the items that you taught. Well done ~ xo
