i am busy packing and prepping to leave on Wednesday for Fiber College of Maine. it’s always tough to spread the word about an event when you’re attending for the first time yourself, but [...]

get to work!

happy Labor Day makers! i’ve always loved September. as a kid, i looked forward to going back to school, and like most of us, that feeling of motivation and renewal has never left me. i feel even more inspired than usual to learn new skills! so, if you haven’t joined yet, now’s the perfect time [...]

bits and bobs and a class this weekend

if you live local to me (that’d be the Hudson Valley/Catskills area of NY), i just want to make sure you know about the loveliness that is Sew Woodstock. it’s a new-ish shop in the town of Woodstock, dedicated to sewing, and run by two of the nicest women, Sally and Molly. they are big [...]

photos by Gale Zucker

in just a few weeks i’ll be headed up to Searsport, Maine to teach at Fiber College of Maine. i’ve been curious about this annual event since i first heard about it several years ago, because it sounds quite different than anything i’ve attended before. for one thing, it’s held at [...]

Let's hook up some rag rugs!

so, what are we gonna do all summer? have you been hooking rugs like mad? why? well, surely you’ve seen my new Crochet [...]

reflections on Squam, June 2014 edition

oh Squam. you never fail to intoxicate, rejuvenate and educate me. this was my 9th (!) time at this creative gathering on a loon-filled lake in the woods of New Hampshire. i just read my account of my very first Squam experience and it all holds true to this day. it never gets old.

the yarn [...]

postcard from Squam

i’m back from Squam, and it was as glorious as ever. i’m exhausted, energized, inspired, fulfilled and oh so honored and grateful to have been part of it. and this weekend i’m off to Shakerag! look out for a Squam recap post later this week.

oh, and the winner of the Dropcloth samplers giveaway was Kay, [...]

design your own wardrobe!!!

do these girls look EXCITED to you? well, let me tell you: they ARE. but their enthusiasm is only about 1% of what i’m feeling as i announce my newest workshop with Creativebug! (oh, and they are wearing samples of the tunics, dresses and shirts YOU can make too after taking it!)

since i’m feeling quite [...]

perhaps the hardest part of writing about art retreats is trying to capture the true flavor of the experience. every one i’ve ever been to has been deliciously inspiring and energizing. yet, even the [...]

the Makerie (part 2.1): workshops/teachers THIS year!

so, who’s teaching at this year’s Makerie? as usual it’s a lineup of talented makers that i’m beyond proud to be part of: helen dardik, rachel faucett, kristen fitzgerrell, jennifer mercede, mia semingson, and my pal rebecca ringquist! i can’t wait to meet these creative ladies and hopefully take one of their classes too. the [...]
