Our Construction Diary
Late update- February 2002
We're sorry to report that
October 4, 2001
Work is progressing nicely on the Quilly show on several fronts. The mouse head is now safely in plaster and the halves are baking in the oven as I type.
Bill worked on the ant head tonight and got the mouth spring installed and filled in the place where the casting sprue was left on her neck.
Marty cleaned the mouse head molds in preparation for baking.
Steve went fabric shopping and came back with all of the fabrics needed to finish the Quilly puppets.
Some people asked us where we get the fabrics for our puppets.
Here in Portland, Oregon, the two large fabric outlets are Mill End Fabrics and Fabric Depot. They both have all of the usual fabrics you can find in any fabric store in America, along with some specialty fabrics and all the needed notions, both routine and special.
We shop more often at Mill End since its only about a mile from our shop.
But, for the truly outrageous fabrics, we travel to a different store, All-American Fabric & Trim. It's nice that they are on Macadam Avenue in Southwest Portland, just over the bridge from our shop, for we often need small quantities of the fabrics that they carry.
So, let's go shopping at All-American Fabric & Trim.
