Artsy Buttons for Sale at Idyllwild Quilt Show!

I'm super excited to be taking part in the Mountain Quilter's 12th annual quilt show and sale next weekend, October 17-18!
We'll be at Buckhorn Camp again, in a huge venue that allows plenty of space to walk around and see the beautiful, award-winning quilts on display. And the vendors at this show are going to be terrific; including quilt fabrics and patterns, kits, creative embellishments, art baskets, jewelry, and MY BUTTONS!
I'm selling my handmade, hand-glazed ceramic buttons—each is one-of-a-kind—for $10 each (cash only) throughout the duration of the show. Once the show is over, I'm retiring this aspect of my art business, at least temporarily.
While I love working with ceramics and have enjoyed making creative buttons, beads and pendants to sell, right now I'm taking care of my 83-year-old mom who needs constant supervision. I'm not able to pursue my artistic activities (making new designs, teaching, writing books and articles, etc.) while I put Mom first in my life.
I do dabble a bit on the side, and you can always learn from me through my previously published books, DVDs, and now my brand-new wire jewelry class on craftsy.com, but new ventures will be put on the back-burner for a while. It's a small sacrifice, one I'm happy to make for my mom, who has given so much to me throughout my entire life.
So, I hope to see you at the quilt show next weekend! Idyllwild is lovely this time of year, when days are still warm and sunny but nights are crisp with a smell of autumn in the air. It's my favorite season, and a wonderful time to visit.
Cheers,
Sharilyn
