SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT

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.

The Needlework Industry Needs Your Help.... and more

The National Needlework Association is doing a survey of consumers to help the needlearts industry keep a-chuggin. Here's the link - it will take you 10 minutes or less. Thank you from all of us who are keeping the needle biz alive and growing.

P.S. There's a big prize for one lucky winner.

P.P.S. Check out this video on long haul truckers who quilt! This article in the Wall Street Journal says long haul truckers are doing both knitting and quilting! Awesome.

My husband found that article a few weeks ago. I thought it was awesome cool also! I've heard people stereotype knitting as a craft for old ladies. I'm always like, hello...Vogue knitting? It still amazes how a loop pulled through a loop can create something so useful, cool, warm, and functional. Go knitting!

I took the survey! Man, thank goodness I blogged about my projects. I had to go through 2009 and count up everything.
