    This is a short blog to let you know of one of Violettes' recent successes. Our Gypsy Violin Purse has been accepted for display at the Knoxville Airport art exhibition. The show is from April 16 to October 7, 2015. The display with the note below will be in the show:

    Ms. Chaffee has Civil Engineering Degrees from UC Berkeley and Cornell University. After working in the field for many years, she devoted her time to raising 2 musical children, and volunteering in schools and church. As her children gained independence, she had time to sew. A creative out of the box thinker with a sense of design and a love of music, she made a Violin Purse. The Violin in this show is part of a collaboration with her brother, composer and writer, Paul Brody. He wrote a story about a Roma Violinist in Paris, which is presented on Ms. Chaffee's web site, www.ViolettesByBecky.com.   Violettes function as practical wearable art bags, but are also a hit with musicians, who use them to carry extra strings and equipment.Violettes fans asked for other instruments, such as cello, piano, guitar, banjo, and uke. Some are hand painted by herself and local artists. Select bags are also available in leather.  One customer says, "Violettes handbags/music accessory bags are exquisite, but also incredibly practical. It is like carrying a piece of art that is also extremely useful. I always get compliments when I have mine. As a violist, I carry it on stage with me when I perform or rehearse, so I can unobtrusively have my rosin, extra strings, a pencil etc., if I need them. I also use it as a regular "dress up" purse, esp. when I go to concerts. Thank you, Violettes, for being such a beautiful and useful product."
