Hod Rods and Sewing Machines
I spent some time last weekend checking out the 7th Barnyard Boogie, a car show/festival charity show hosted by The Marauders.
There were cars, trucks, motorcycles, scooters, trailers of all kinds from stock models to customs and hot rods.
I have really been paying attention to custom pinstriping, which can be very simply abstract lines as in the photo above,
very elaborate abstract designs,
or representational - all depending on the car owner's preference and the pinstriping artist's idea. I think it is really beautiful stuff - kind of like quilting stitches!
It just so happened that artist Jody Clark was on hand at the event, and it just so happened that I had a vintage Singer 301 in my car...so...
Love it. And what about you - have you ever given a sewing machine a little facelift?
