{Report from the Fringe} Persian Rug Village

Event: Persian Rug Village

Venue: 2 Venues: one at the Persian Rug Village store (where we went) and another tent on Prince's Street.

Cost: FREE

Review: This was a great way to learn about 2,000+ years of Persian culture and textiles while sitting in a beautifully colourful tent!  They advertised tea as well--but they didn't have any when we showed up!  We went to the less busy Morningside location.  As a bonus, we had the tent all to ourselves!

What I Wore: get a little sneaky peek at my Sew Weekly creation for this week!  Let's just say the bright colour fit right in with the tent and I was super comfortable!


  1. Ha! I know a Pendrell blouse when I see one.... ;)

  2. I see a Sarah based inspiration....! I recognise those sleeves, it looks great! What an interesting sounding Fringe event too!

  3. I vote Pendrell too! ;)

    Looks like a really fun and interesting display! Love the lighting with all the colors.

  4. Oh Debi - you look like you are having a fabulous time!! Cannot wait to see the big reveal :)

  5. Debi I'm about to sew that pattern your sent me! I was checking out the measurements and planning. Need to go buy my black velveteen for that.

  6. What a gorgeous blue! I've been meaning to make a Pendrell, but I haven't made the time yet. I can't even imagine finding the time to sew something new every week! I can't wait to see yours. You always provide such wonderful inspiration!

  7. Oooh! I've only just managed to order a couple of Colette patterns and download the sorbetto. I think I'm going to have to get the Pendrell.

    The colour and fabric of this one is so lovely! I wish I had some local fabric shops I could ransack for bargains like that...

    It's just right for a trip to the Fringe too!

  8. I've seen a Persian area rug village when I last visited my grandma:)) she has Persian carpets allover her house....on the floor, on every wall, is like I entered a Persian home many years ago.....


I read each and every comment--thank you so much!
