On the loom

I’m finishing up some cottolin towels to ship off to Process Low Waste Shop in Stevens Point, WI. The strange pandemic economy meant that I had to improvise a little with the colors/types of yarn I was able to get this time. These towels will look a bit different than the last batch I made,…

Handmade Toledo washcloth restock!

I took a lovely trip to Toledo the other day and re-stocked the handwoven washcloths on the shelves of the Handmade Toledo Makershop! I added a couple new colors to their washcloth stock. They have such fun collection of local, handmade things in the shop, it’s always a joy to visit them! Handmade Toledo is…

White Flowers on Pink Scarves

February has two very strong associations for me: the Dar Williams song “February” about the struggle to make it through the winter of a romantic relationship, and Valentine’s Day.

I’m writing this post to everyone who bought a woven thing from me this year! Your help enabled me to donate to Black & Pink, an organization that I think is doing some amazing work. To each person who bought a washcloth or towel or scarf, to the lovely folks at Process General who matched…

December Holiday times and home-delivery to Ann Arbor

As the year shrinks to an end I am looking at my smaller and smaller piles of woven goods and feeling so happy! I always wonder, at the beginning of the holiday season, if I’ve made anything that a person would want to take home. I go through moods with my work. Some days I…

Detroit Urban Craft Fair is this weekend

It’s finally here, December! The time for in-person craft fairs! Since the in-person part of Tiny Expo has been cancelled this year, my only live show will be this coming weekend in Detroit. Handmade Detroit puts on the Detroit Urban Craft Fair and I’ve participated for five-ish years. The event is held at the illustrious…
