Inanna dazzles us with a belly dance performance on Wednesday evening!

Take a break and get energized by a whirl of color, elegance and splendor! 6:30-7pm at Beads & Rugs By ATA, 626 Broadway, downtown Paducah.

Inanna is a member of Zerdali Dance Co., founder of Bella Luna Belly Dance and co-founder of Akasha Dance Co. She is also an independent distributor of It Works! She has studied belly dance since 2004. After life time search for the perfect form of self-expression she found it in the earthy and sensual movements of Middle Eastern dance. She was transfixed by these beautiful, natural women and their colorful costumes that made music by just walking! She started her journey through the world of hips and bellies with an inexpensive hip scarf and a DVD. When she found Ligaya and the Zerdali Dancers of Paducah she found a group of wonderful women who continue to inspire and encourage her every day.

Her love of the art form has led her to travel the country, gleaning from her teachers the knowledge they possess and performing with dancers from around the world. As she continues to learn and grow, so does her love of belly dance.

This is an interesting collectible that should especially catch the eye of bicycle enthusiasts!

Embroidered Bicycle Seat Cover: Vintage Pashtun Katawaz -
Afghanistan

Have you seen pictures of decorated buses, donkey carts, trucks and other modes of transportation? Bright colors, tassels, bells, and so on? They do that in South America and all over Asia and Africa. In Afghanistan, motorcycles and bicycles also get special treatment! This beautifully embroidered textile is a vintage piece that has been salvaged from its original role as a seat cover. A functional piece would have another piece of fabric that would wrap around the seat and tie up.

Specifics on this piece: Curly chain stitched designs cover the surface, outlined with brass trim. The stitches are unbelievably tiny. The background silk fabric is a soft medium green, but there is so much embroidery that it just barely peeks through, Edges are decorated with twisted threads that end in glass seed beads. The dominant color is a pumpkin orange. Condition is excellent. The back does show some staining along the edges, so this piece was mostly likely used.

This is considered a Katawaz embroidery done by the Pashtun of Ghazni province. In Afghanistan, they refer to this style as Zazi embroidery.

Dimensions:

11" daimeter (28 cm)
Fringe: 1" (2.5 cm)

Estimated age: 50 years+ $120

Jennifer Day - Art Quilter

I am now being represented in a gallery on Canyon Road in Santa Fe, New Mexico!! Santa Fe is the second largest art market in the United States.The emphasis this month is Cosmos flowers. These three pieces include the flowers. Oreo - the new Bull calf was born at our ranch in New Mexico a month ago. I am now covering the entire art in thread with no free motion quilting. I am also incorporating metallic and silk threads to give a shimmer to the image. My art is now framed. My next piece will be covered in art resin with a metallic paint. It is wonderful to have a new direction in my fiber art!! ... See MoreSee Less
