I hope you'll visit
I have been going to the studio every weekday and I am totally addicted :) I have a show on Sunday in Worcester, stART on the street, and I probably should be making some flowers or earrings, but I got inspired and started making something completely new! I'm not chastising myself, I probably have enough felty flowers for the show, this item is the start of a new line for me and it's very exciting!
It's a scarf made of panels cut from washed and dried (fulled) wool sweaters. I am going to make throws, blankets and pillows from them too, but this was the first of my ideas made real. I didn't sew the sweater pieces together, I used loose wool roving and art yarn to needle felt the seams closed. I always keep my prototypes so I can see how they hold up over time.
At the end of the month, Saturday, September 29th and Sunday, September 30th, I will be in my studio for Lowell Open Studios 12-5 each day and I hope everyone who can will come and say "hi". I love it when I meet people for the first time and they say "Hi, I read your blog!" or "I know you from Etsy!" That's the coolest :) And if I've already met you, I'd love to see you again in my new location, A305, third floor of the Mill A annex which is accessible from halfway down the hallway of the third floor in the main building down a short corridor. Or enter through the Classic Elite Yarns entrance and take the elevator to the third floor, I'm straight ahead, the one with the bright orange door!
