Dog Days of Summer

I don't know about you but in California we have been waiting for summer for what seems like a very long time. And now it's here - and a hot one at that! My sisters in Iowa and Memphis tell me the same - hot with humidity. What's a crafter to do? Head to the beach I say! Whip up a tote with our Making Handbags pattern and throw in a good book.
And don't forget the sunscreen!

Swap Success

The Sunday Swap at the Santa Monica Museum of Art was a huge success!

Thank you to all the Designers, Volunteers and Museum Staff that made it possible. We transformed hundreds of t-shirts otherwise destined for the junk yard! From silk screening to doll making - and even making a dress!

What I loved about this Swap was the diversity of the participants - young, old, man, woman, punk, traditional and from the pages of High Fashion.

Stay tuned for news of the upcoming July event!
