Happy Summer!

Getting ready for the summer crowds in Saratoga who spend alot of time outdoors in the evening at our fabulous SPAC outdoor ampitheatre or on the patios of our fabulous restaurants. We have the perfect accessory for cool summer evenings- a lacy shawl handwoven of bamboo fiber in a luscious pink and taupe combination.  I was pressing it and realized the reason we all love this color so-  it reminds us of neapolitan ice cream, where the strawberry and chocolate and vanilla all melt together soft and creamy.  Happy Summer everyone!

Arts Fest June 10-12, 2011!

Crocheted Pears and Felted Tomatoes
almost good enough to eat.... but a little
too high in fiber!

We are part of ARTS FEST this weekend June 10-12 at our shop in the Beekman Street Arts District. An open house/studio, visiting fiber artists, and weaving demonstrations will take place Saturday 10-8 pm and Sunday 12-4 pm. The galleries in our Arts District will display special pieces for ARTS FEAST- handmade functional art in tableware and table coverings. Textile Studio will be adding fun fiber food too- all handmade by American artisans using knit, crochet, and felting techniques.
