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!


  1. I love the scarf! great colors!

    I hope you get lots of visitors. The red circle aroud the door showing the entrance is so helpful.

    Your work table photo... that just looks like an illustration for "Creativity!"

    All my love, Mom

  2. Oh yay! We may get to meet in person - I am going to stART on Sunday!

  3. Hey Liz, maybe you should let people know that the red circle doesn't exist in real life.

    I will come by and visit! When I do I am going to wait until you aren't looking and stuff that lovely scarf in my purse. =)

  4. Mom, thanks! I can't wait until you come visit ;)

    Marianne, cool! I'm sharing a tent with Liz of Lush Beads. I assume you'll be the one with the camera!

    Candace, are you sure it's not painted on? I could have sworn...note to self: check C's bag when she leaves studio

  5. If I could come I would! That scarf looks great. I wish I knew something about needle felting other than how wonderful it looks.

  6. Ooooh, I love that scarf! Your studio is shaping up nicely! I wish I could come and I say that all the time?

  7. Sewlutions, thanks!! I am planning on adding tutorials to my blog in the future and needle felting is on the list :)

    Maia, if you wish hard enough it might come true! Would love to meet you.

  8. That red circle DOES exist. I've seen it. So bright...
