Niche

One meaning of niche is "An area of the market specializing in one type of product or service" as defined by the Urban Dictionary.

Often you hear that people have found their niche, I guess I'm not one of those people, not yet anyway. I like to sew a variety of styles and themes, otherwise I think I might get a little bored. Another aspect of creating a variety is the exposure to other ideas, fabrics and even history.

On facebook there are lots of like minded creatives, and one way of getting our "wares" out to a wider audience is to enter a showcase. A showcase is kind of like a market but online and run via a facebook page like CharlyE

There is often a theme and this one is Rockabilly. Now I don't know much about Rockabilly, but have done a little research and came across this interesting article Rockabilly clothing which talks about the styles back in the 1950s and the precursor for what Rockabilly is today.

So the items I decided on for this particular showcase are as follows:

The Elvis Cushion Cover



The Headscarf



Cherry Dress for a child - using a vintage pattern


Selection of Fabric Hair Bows



Thats my take on Rockabilly, like I said I don't know that much about it but I know more than when I started.
