to celebrate the publication of my new book


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.

A Winner of the Knit and Crochet Now DVD's!

Thanks so much for all of your help with the ideas for the new season of Knit and Crochet Now. I was so happy that you took the time to help us. If you missed the deadline, don't worry - you can still give us show ideas. You just won't be eligible for the DVD prize but we would love your input. Where else but the knitting and crochet world can you be so close to the production of a television show? I can't think of any other hobby that generates such passion amongst its devotees!

Joyce is the winner. I have contacted her via e-mail. Here's what she said: "I really want to learn to do some simple "embroidery" stitches on my knitting. I can see from your books that they really enhance the knitting, but it is hard to make embroidery stitches lay nice on such a flexible fabric."

Stay tuned to the blog - I've got lots of great giveaways coming up. There's a reason, but I'm not going to let you in on it just quite yet. The giveaways will only go over a couple of days so check back often.
