This past weekend was a welcomed introduction to a circle of surreal magic that seemed to be on every corner. Route 9 from Pittsfield to Twist Fair in Northampton is not to be missed. Check out the eyecandy! This is just a sample!

Twist Fair

I participated in a brand new indie craft sale at the Northampton Center for the Arts. It was really well attended and well run by Lexie and Cory Barnes.
Sold a bunch of stuff and got a lot of interest in the workshops I have been offering in my studio. Speaking of which, I have one spot left for this Saturday's Sweater Making session. It runs from 10-4 on September 13th. All materials are included as well as a nice lunch. The cost is $125 and you will leave with a finished, or nearly finished sweater.

There are others coming up - once a month. I will post the schedule later today.
