It's no secret that my website has been sorely neglected for quite some time now. But new things are afoot for Lucky Zelda, not the least of which is a brand new website!  On my new site (still to be found at LuckyZelda.com) I plan on having a gallery of some of my work, a list of services offered, and client testimonials.  I can't wait to see the new site & I plan of keeping up with it much more often now that life has calmed down significantly.

A New Side to Lucky Zelda

For several years people have commented on costumes and custom textile items that I've made. While I love creating items for people I want to offer something different. We all know the saying "Give a man a fish feed him for a day...". Well, I want to teach a man to fish! Or woman. Lucky Zelda is now offering consulting and instruction for those who have never sewn before and also those who want to take their skills to the next level. Whether you want to create everyday apparel, home textiles, or costumes please feel free to contact me in the comments below.

I am also now offering lectures and Q&A sessions with student groups about sewing, costuming and my career path. Contact me if you'd like to learn more.

My All-Time Favorite Show of the Year!

Here we are again. The weather is cooling, pumpkin flavored everything is out, I'm wearing my fingerless mitts in my work room & my sewing machine is whirring. Ahhhh Autumn, how I love you! And with Autumn upon us it means that the fall Patchwork Show is right around the corner!

Please mark your calendar for this great, free, pet-friendly event! Sunday, December 01, 2013, the streets in downtown Santa Ana come alive for Patchwork!!! Over 100 vendors. All local. All handmade. When you shop at a Patchwork Show, you are supporting an individual rather than a corporation. You see amazing, beautiful, bizarre, tasty products & meet some really great people.

Like at the Spring show, Lucky Zelda is partnering with SoPa. So don your mittens but be prepared to take in the feel of the islands. SoPa will have their beautiful earrings, belts & dresses all made here in Orange County. Take a look at their Facebook page for a sneak peak.

See you there! It's only 1 month away!

Closing the Summer the Way I Started

I started this summer with one of my favorite shows; Patchwork Show Modern Handmade Festival in Santa Ana at the end of May. I had a couple of shows since then but now here we are coming up on Labor Day, the unofficial end of summer. So, to end the summer the way Lucky Zelda started, I'll be at a show.

Come down to the beach for one last dose of sunshine & waves and enjoy Calvary Chapel of the Harbour's Labor of Love Music Fest.

This Saturday, August 31st, 11am-5pm. It's a free event with lots to offer but if you're driving, the state beach does charge $15 to park.

My dear friend Sisa Grey of SoPa (South Pacific) Urban Accessories will also be there so you're sure to get some Polynesian spirit.

Next up is a show in September to support Children's Hospital of Orange County so stay tuned for more information!
