The Logger's Daughter Terry Logan at Chelsea boutique in Ward Warehouse, with some of her designs.
While attending the grand reopening of Chai Studio, now at the Diamond Head end of Ward Warehouse, I ran into designer Terry Logan a k a The Logger's Daughter, who divides her time between the Pacific Northwest and Hawaii.
She had just come from setting up her trunk show at Chelsea boutique, also in the Ward Warehouse, so after leaving the party we walked over so I could get a peek ahead of the trunk show going on from 3 to 7 p.m. today, Dec. 6.
She makes these ceramic beads and strings them on stretch bands of fabric that can double as necklace or wrap bracelet.
During a summer road trip to the Bay Area, she picked up Asia-themed textiles that now form panels for her new patchwork swing coat designs. Other designs are embellished with pin tucks and she's also showing Arrow tunics, Dragonfly dresses and baskets of fingerless glove designs in a new rayon/Lycra knit with glass pearl accents. Her fleece fingerless gloves came in handy during my recent trip to the East Coast, when people there had told me it wasn't glove weather yet. But with the freak snowstorm last month, temperatures got down to 28 degrees, so I beg to differ. At any rate, they come in handy if you tend to get the chills in movie theaters or air-conditioned offices, and are nice for plane rides as well.
The first 20 customers who make a purchase will get a gift, and a 20 percent discount will be offered with a donation of five nonperishable food items to the Hawaii Foodbank.
Additional trunk shows will take place from 5 to 9 p.m. during First Friday at Louis Pohl Gallery, 1142 Bethel St., and from noon to 3 p.m. Dec. 9 at Silver Moon Emporium in the North Shore Marketplace in Haleiwa.
For the home sewer or quilter on your gift list, Logan's ceramic-magnetic needle finder could come in handy as a place to secure your needle, lest it fall between cushions or on the floor, only to be discovered later. Ouch!
