Ira & Sue Lances / Handmade Chenille

textiles & fashion design / clothing

Hometown: Staten Island, NY

Artist Website

Ira and Sue Lances are a big-city couple with a down-to-earth spirit. Based in Staten Island, this dynamic duo makes exquisite hand-crafted chenille goods, including their signature chenille tassel jackets, boleros, shawls and tunics. The couple began crafting wearables back in 1980, but soon discovered that their textile work was popular among the arts and crafts community. Each fine art textile work made by Ira and Sue Lances is a 100 percent one-of-a-kind. And the pieces aren’t just beautiful, they’re also practical. Each garment is machine washable and dryable.

Many of the Lances’ pieces are crafted using a unique handmade chenille technique featuring four layers of nylon fabric that has been stitched together. The artists then cut through three of the layers, leaving one layer as the lining. The Lances also specialize in crafting lace chenille, which is created using a specialized process using recycled fabrics. If you’re looking for one-of-a-kind chenille apparel, the Lances’ artist-made creations are sure to draw you in. Sugarloaf Crafts is proud to host the Lances at various festivals throughout the Mid-Atlantic.

Susan Loy / Literary Calligraphy

paintings, prints & fine art

Hometown: Moneta, VA

Artist Website

Susan Loy is the creative force behind Literary Calligraphy, a Virginia-based studio which brings an impressive collection of exquisite calligraphic art paintings to the Sugarloaf community. Loy uses watercolors to create the main theme of each piece and then surrounds the design with a literary verse by one of the greats, such as William Shakespeare, Emily Dickinson or Walt Whitman. Because of her work’s depth and complexity, Loy says that a single one of her pieces can take several weeks, and even months, to complete.

Loy then turns her prints into keepsake stationaries, calendars and books that you can purchase for your home or a loved one. Loy’s creations are so varied that they make excellent gifts. She incorporates everything from American poetry to Bible verses to quotes from the U.S. Constitution, so you’re sure to find a one-of-a-kind gift for your favorite scholar in at the Literary Calligraphy booth. Watch Loy transform important literature into long-lasting artwork at an upcoming Sugarloaf Craft Festival this year.
