American Holiday Bazaar

FELT4U had a great time at the annual American Holiday Bazaar held at the American International School recently in Even Yehuda, Israel. This event attracts many internationals who stock up on gifts prior to going abroad for their Xmas vacation. For The event was like a mini United Nations with a multitude of languages filling the air.
We were excited to sell our nuno-felted scarves and wraps to, among others, a Chinese woman who arrived just two months ago for a posting with her American husband, a beautiful filmmaker from Jaffa (she looked superb in our grey/green/blue cobweb wrap), and a local PR hotshot who bought two wraps – black on white and grey lattice.
Elaine and I also enjoyed sharing the day with other craft artists and seeing their creative output. A few special mentions: Anat Brim from LiLush ( knitted scarf coats and wraps in vibrant colors –; fashion designer Rina Schechter who has branched into jewelry making (a trendy ethnic look – available at her store 10 rabi Pinchas Street, Jaffa Flea Market, Anat Sapir, a jewelry designer who makes exquisite glass beads (, Sheyna Lot, a ceramicist from Kibbutz Shefayim whose vases and bowls come in tones of the desert sands and talented Israeli artist Yoram Gal whose large vibrant paintings of Israeli scenes are sold and exhibited worldwide.

Best wishes to all
