Baltimore Feb 2011- American Craft Council Fair

Our menswear collection- neckties, scarves, and our new line of asymmetrical pieced vests. We have a small but loyal men's following at this show, artful dressers.

Booth 530, our little corner of the world, among 700 top notch craft artists from across the USA. Here we're showing some new linen/silk jackets for spring along with our bamboo scarves and shawls. This is a well-attended show and it's great to be appreciated by an enthusiastic, buying crowd.

New Year in New York!

A roll of rayon chenille plaid scarf warp fresh off the loom. After the roll is laundered, it's cut and sewn into several scarves. This one will brighten up a dark winter day!

Three different weaves in three different fibers- merino/tencel, alpaca, and bamboo.

We started our new year designing samples for the New York Gift show which opened the end of January. Jeri, Morgan, and I wove warp after warp, changing fills for each new colorway, experimenting with a new merino/tencel yarn, and playing with pattern formats and sizes. It was a challenge to produce several new scarf lines in a month. Here's one collection at the show featuring parts of 3 different collections all in bamboo fiber.
