crochet for knitters!

crochet for knitters

hello! i am so happy to announce that i have a fun new workshop debuting today over on Creativebug. it’s called Crochet Techniques for Knitters, and it’s packed with simple and useful ways that a crochet hook can become a valued addition to your knitting toolkit (if it isn’t already)!

knitters tell me […]

Drop Forge & Tool

 

 

the Hudson Valley area of New York, where i live,  is filled with makers, growers, and all sorts of creators. it can take a bit of hunting though to find them, as their studios, homes, shops and farms are spread out over this vast, largely rural area and tucked away on dirt roads or in […]

get out your sketchbook!

you guys! i could not be more excited about the newest work-along happening NOW* on Creativebug: Sketchbook Explorations with Lisa Congdon. i’m sure you know who Lisa is; she’s such a prolific + inspiring illustrator and teacher. i love her bright, clear, colorful and bold graphic style, and especially at this time of year we […]

the last of the minutes

if you know me, you know that i’m not really a “plan ahead” kinda girl. the plotting and scheming and idea-hatching may start early on in my process, but before i know it, the deadline is nigh and i’m not quite ready. hence, my annual holiday gift scramble is always a mad dash. between craft […]

see you in Maine!

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 […]

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 […]

Spirit of Mastery

i’ve always been very attached to the idea of documenting life through photography. family photo albums, both from before i was born as well as after i entered the world are still some of my most treasured possessions. i mean, if i didn’t have this, i would have long since forgotten what it was like […]

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 […]

the Makerie (part 2): workshops/teachers (last year)

arguably the most important draw for any art retreat is the roster of teachers and workshops, which change from year to year. surely you have artists, designers or bloggers that you follow and admire, and if you learn that they are teaching at one of these creative getaways, i’m willing to bet you won’t regret […]
