Preparations for November

Harvest of Handwovens was a great success! Now I have to replenish my stash for 3 events in November. I’m weaving more towels & Mug Rugs, setting up another shawl, some scarves and holiday table runners.  Tonight I’ll be making more soy candles. This Saturday is 1st Saturday in 3 Rivers. Our theme is “Leaves” and that’s great because the leaves on the South Fork are gorgeous!  I also have my “Oak Leaves & Acorns” note cards. I hope you will visit me. Check out my “Events” page to see what else is happening this month.

“Harvest” is September’s 1st Saturday

September 4 is the date for September’s 1st Saturday  art celebration.  “Harvest” is the theme for the day.  These hand dyed towels are the latest harvest from my loom–love those Fibonacci stripes.  Come and visit me in my studio where I will be weaving another batch of hand dyed towels–earth tones this time in answer to your requests.  I will also be weaving holiday table runners.  A new shawl as well as new scarves, Mug Rugs and soy candles will also be available.  I’ve been busy!  Click on the link to 1st Saturday in my blog to see what else is going on during 1st Saturday.  My studio will be open from 11:00 to 5:00.  I hope to see you here.
