Langley store combines art, fabric and textiles

Whidbey Island is home to a slew of art studios, fabric stores and textile shops, but why make the trek to all of them when you can mesh those ideas into a single comprehensive store? That’s the idea behind Side Market, an art and design boutique that will open its doors today at 10 a.m. at 5603 Bayview Road Suite 3 in the Bayview Cash Store.

Whidbey Island is home to a slew of art studios, fabric stores and textile shops, but why make the trek to all of them when you can mesh those ideas into a single comprehensive store?

That’s the idea behind Side Market, an art and design boutique that will open its doors today at 10 a.m. at 5603 Bayview Road Suite 3 in the Bayview Cash Store. The boutique features the work of four Whidbey Island artists and designers of various disciplines. The boutique is a collaboration between a fabric designer, a fine art conservator and two “lifetime artists and makers” who seek to bring a selection of handcrafted and restored goods to the public.

“There was a mutual admiration society among all of us for the craft that we each bring to the table,” mixed media artist Meredith Macleod said. “The space at Bayview Corner came available and the boutique was born.”

The store is owned and founded by fabric artist Marcia Derse, textile artist Peggy Juve, multimedia artist Meredith Macloed and fine art conservator Emily Derse Pellichero. While the four resident artists will regularly feature their work at the boutique, the store will also showcase visiting artists and designers from across the state.
