The “Meet & Greet” the artist series begins its fifth
season at Second Street Gallery this Saturday, June 16th at
210 Second Street in Old Town Bandon. The series features
different artists each weekend during the summer months
demonstrating their craft. The program runs from 10AM - 5PM
each day and is free and open to the public.
This weekend the program kicks off featuring Jewel Knapp, an
Oregon artist who specializes in creating beautiful, artsy
creations utilizing fabric remnants.
“I inherited the thrill of sewing from my mom who loved to
sew but rarely had the time”, exclaims Jewel. Mom was
extremely creative and enjoyed having fun. As a result, I
learned that I too could have fun and turn almost anything
into a treasure.
Believing that too many things in this world are simply
discarded, Knapp started exploring unusual places to
discover fabric remnants. Transforming remnants into unique,
“one of a kind” bags is magical. That is exactly what
happens each time Knapp rescues a remnant and turns it into
a fabric art treasure.
