Website, Consignment, and Trunk Show


I’m not traveling this month.  But I am busy!  Just this morning I think I’ve finally managed to tidy up my website.  I was forced to change the service provider at the end of April.  My good friend, Patti Haring, helped me move the website.  I’ve known her since high school.  She’s now an IT know-it-all.  Thank goodness.

It’s taken me since early May to straighten up and revise my website.  You can now find a list of my upcoming teaching events, new photos of some of my knit designs and hand spun yarns, my fiber arts resume, and updated descriptions of the spinning and knitting workshops that I offer.  Take a look:


I am happy to report that Michigan’s Gifts &Treasures  has reopened for the season.  It is a gift shop located in the heart of Interlochen, Michigan.  The proprietor, Paulette, carries only Michigan-made items from Michigan artists and craftspersons.  And, she’s got a few of my items for sale on consignment.  I’m especially pleased that she has my wall hanging, “Petosegay – Sunbeams of Promise”, in her shop. 

She also has some of my recently completed handwoven scarves; mostly cotton, bamboo, and rayon.  Perfect summer neck decorations!

Trunk Show

I am also happy to report that I will have a “trunk show” of my work at Wool & Honey, a very sweet yarn shop in Cedar, Michigan.  You can find my yarns, my knitting patterns, my knitted items, and perhaps some woven items at this trunk show.  Dates are Friday, August 3 and Saturday, August 4.

I’m especially excited about the yarns I’ll have there.  All my spinning wheels have been busy helping me make them.  You’ll find luxury fibers (cashmere, silk, mohair, alpaca) and hardworking wools.  You’ll find yarns of all weights, from super fine laceweight to super bulky.  There’ll be smooth yarns; there’ll be textured yarns.  Some of the yarns are brilliantly colored, some are more subdued, and some are natural colors.  Something for everyone!

I’ll blog more about this trunk show as the dates get closer.  I do hope you’ll join us!
