Richmond show

Other than the stress of our trip south starting out in heavy snow, the weekend at Craft+Design in Richmond was fantastic! The Visual Arts Center took good care of us in every way from the opening night cocktail party, to Saturday night artists dinner to offers of help during tear down. If you've heard good things about Richmond...believe them. I'm looking forward to going back for a long weekend when we can explore more of this beautiful, historic, artsy city.

I got a little weepy seeing one of those signs with my name for the first time. 

This makes it look like my husband did all the work. That would be because he did. The tricky bits anyway. 

We really enjoyed getting to know our "neighbor" vendors at the show too, one of whom, Jenny Jen 42, as it turns out, was my Dad's student teacher in 1986! What a small world! I'll be doing Holiday Heap with her in just 3 weeks. The others I'll see again in a few short months at ACC  Baltimore. So happy for that.  

And now for a bit of down time. Wishing all those in the US a Happy Thanksgiving!

Craft and Design 2018

The big week has arrived! In just a few days I leave for Richmond, VA and the Visual Arts Center's Craft + Design show. It is all systems go around here and I'm very thankful for the help and encouragement of my friends and family.

I have so much new work to show and it will be great to get feedback in real time. Many pieces are variations on a theme or one of a kind because that's my favorite way to work.

You can buy tickets online including for the Patron's Preview party 6pm - 9pm Friday night which I believe includes drinks and hors d'oeuvres and the and Rise + Shine breakfast Saturday 9:30am - 11:30am which includes, as you'd imagine, a lovely catered breakfast. General admission runs 11am-6pm Saturday and Sunday.

Hope to see you there!
