The next Bee in the Barn at Todd Farm will be a very special gathering. Sewing bees have a long history of community gatherings for a common cause and in that spirit our next bee on March 19th will also serve as a collection site for handcrafting materials, tools, and supplies to donate to Syrian refugees.
I love trying new things, so this weekend should be exciting. I’ll be joining a bevy of talented artists and other creatives at The Art of Craft at the Fayerweather Street School in Cambridge, Ma tomorrow for my first show. Everything (and I mean everything) is packed and ready to go. From my popular Oriental Rug Pillows made from reclaimed and salvaged antique oriental rugs to organic baby knitwear; eco-friendly soft toys to elegant wedding accessories incorporating antique textiles. It is all there.
Looking forward to a beautiful sunny day when I get to participate in my favorite part of handmade: meeting the people who appreciate it.
