ACC Craft Fair 2013

Attending the ACC Craft Fair is becoming an annual tradition for me! What an inspiring event, with vendors from across the U.S. who make such beautiful items. Plus, people watching is also fun because creatives show up in force. I went with my friend Sue, and we had lunch at of my favorite nearby eateries, Greens.

But mostly the point of post is that I'm also participating in Visible Monday and Hat Attack! I discovered both of these via Margy, who is having a lot of fun with these blog participation events.

I originally blogged the Geisha duster when I made it in June. I am wearing my Trippens, which I call my German Geisha shoes. Despite walking and standing all day, these are as comfy as flat shoes. The hat is a bit hard to see, but is a cloche style with lots of sewn-in pleats. It was perfect for the chilly, foggy, San Francisco day!

You can't see, but I am also wearing my Style Arc Barb pants, which I am wearing soooo much! (I need to make more of these.) I am wearing a black pleated sleeveless shell that I purchased at a consignment store in Pacific Heights.

Sue, who is wearing one of her gorgeous hand made, nuno felted, eco dyed scarves. She sells these but hasn't got her website up yet. She will have a booth at Artistry in Fashion (on 9/28) again this year and will be selling both her hats and her scarves.

Lunch at Greens in Fort Mason

I have started another sewing project. Surprise, surprise, it's another coat. I am very busy this weekend, and this requires some hand sewing, so it may take me awhile to finish. (Do I need a coat intervention?)
