Back in August the lovely Karin Strom interviewed me for a profile in Yarn Market News, THE magazine for yarn stores in North America. Karin is the Editor of this fine publication and we have actually been friends for probably 20 plus years! Karin and her husband came to visit us this past summer to do research for the piece from the October issue. This article is part of the roll-out for my new book Color By Kristin published by Sixth and Spring. You can read the whole article here if you like.
Don't you love this yarn apple on the cover? Karin and Joe Vior, Soho's Art Director, dream up the best ideas - turning yarn into art. I wish they had some kind of archive of all the covers to use as down-loadable wallpaper for my computer.
If you want to see a different kind of preview from Color by Kristin, check this out. It's been viewed over 4000 times! Wow.
I've got some big news I'll be announcing on Friday or Saturday. Stop back soon.
BOOK PARTY - MAY 5-6
to celebrate the publication of my new book
CRAFTING A PATTERNED HOME.
Our colorful 1751 farmhouse will be open to the public. On view will be many of the projects that are featured in Crafting A Pattern Home along with many other things I have made over the years.
This event will be a celebration of the handmade. I hope the day will inspire you to add some pattern and color to your home.
The event is FREE. Books will be available along with some other things I have made. For more information and directions, see the EVENTBRITE PAGE HERE. Although tickets are not mandatory, it will help me get a count to know what to expect. Hope to see you here in western Massachusetts in May.
