a little bit of history…Claire McCardell

I was lecturing on my thesis at a local college and it made me recall all the amazing and influential women fashion designers from the 20th century; like the great Claire McCardell!

We should all be thanking Claire McCardell for pioneering the women’s sportwear fashions in the USA.  Born in Frederick, Maryland, McCardell was driven by her desire to design clothes that not only fit her lifestyle but that of the everyday women.

Get to know Etsy artist spinthread’s

What a unique and different artist. I am absolutely loving her jewelry work. Each one of her pieces  is hand embroidered and sewn. The geometric shapes give the piece a unique movement and visual experience when looking at them. To check out her bio click on the link below.  http://www.etsy.com/people/spinthread
