in love with: Sew Woodstock

ever since moving upstate, i’ve dreamed of having a local sewing shop where i could teach, shop, hang out with like-minded stitchers, and basically call my 2nd home. if i could conjure up this dream place, it’d look exactly like the picture you see above. lucky for me, it’s not a dream but a reality: [...]

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 [...]

see you this weekend at the first-ever Basilica Farm + Flea!

hello! hope you had the most beautiful Thanksgiving yesterday! i sure did, but now it’s back to work for the rest of this weekend, so i’m just popping in for a quick note to make sure those of you within range know about the first-ever Basilica Farm + Flea! if you’re anywhere near Hudson, New [...]

hunting season begins!

oh my! suddenly it’s THAT time of year again… you know, the one where you’re supposed to find (or make) the perfect gift to express just how much each of your loved ones mean to you. it snuck up on me so fast this year that i neglected to tell you about CRAFTED, the lovely [...]

classes in brooklyn and beyond...

back to school!

i traditionally take the month of August off from teaching; it’s a slow month anyway and allows me to regroup for beginning a new *school* year. and then i somehow booked myself for four craft fairs in September, so we are fast forwarding ahead to October to really start the new season [...]

bubby's burrito trailer

this is where i had lunch on tuesday. it was pretty awesome. of course, once i got the burrito in hand, i forgot all about picture-taking, or else i would show you how pretty (and huge!) it was. the surrounding farmland view was also lovely. if you are ever in red hook, NY, i highly [...]

farmers’ market debut

i have always dreamed of having a booth at a real farmers’ market. i wouldn’t be selling traditional “PROduce”, but rather the things i make or “proDUCE”, using raw materials grown on my farm. well, on saturday that dream comes true! partially anyway (the fledgling farm is still gearing up for production). jill and i [...]
