“Meet & Greet” Begins 5th Season

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.
