Buffalo Exchange and diy denim stenciling

Thank you Mo and everyone at Buffalo Exchange at the Portland Hawthorne location for making a fabulous event to introduce my book. Fabric paint, new and antique stencils and a pile of old jeans donated by Buffalo Exchange were spread out on the table, for customers to create "new" jeans for back to school, for girl friends, siblings or just to beef up their own wardrobes. Gals, guys and kids were zooming with creativity, I was terribly inspired, by the crowd, the fashion and the stenciling. When jeans were cut off, the leftovers were stenciled for totes, or notebook covers. It was WOW! or as one student heading off to college put it - it's party time - BANG TIME!
