Media, Interviews, and Fiber Photography
(Mostly me babbling about my obsession with yarn)
My good friend and fellow spinner, Kristin (August Moon Farm), invited me to join her spinning at the Vintage Market on Saturday. We spent a few hours demoing spinning and chatting on the porch with the market visitors and volunteers.
The Little Knittery is a cozy yarn shop in Los Angeles that is home to the Pussy Hat Project. They just moved to a new location and we're thrilled that they are carrying 222 Handspun yarn!
Strauch is featuring my photo of my Mad Batt'r in action on their new website. They did a great job with the new site!
I was honored to be a featured artist in the exhibition and to have my photography used in the promotional materials. The Curator, Jennifer also asked me to do the exhibit photography to commemorate the event opening and exhibit.
I'm honored to announce that my weaving entitled "Secret Garden in the Eye of the Storm" will be on exhibit at the Bellefonte Art Museum in October and was featured on the event page for the exhibit. This was the final project I completed for the Journey to the Golden Fleece Course I took last year and was selected along with 19 others to be on display as part of their fiber arts festival.
My photo was featured for the class "How to Choose a Fleece presented by Melissa Weaver Dunning" on the Shenandoah Valley Fiber Festival 2015 page. I'm really looking forward to this year's festival, which is one of the best in the area. Visit the SVFF website for more info.
My photo of my Mad Batt'r drum carder was used in Strauch's ad in Ply Magazine's Summer 2015 issue. I was a featured artist on their blog last September. I'm a huge fan of their fiber equipment so I was really excited that they selected my picture for the ad.
The fiber arts world is very small. I really enjoy getting mail from Indie Untangled, a comprehensive site to bring together yarn lovers and amazing products from indie artisans. So I was gleeful when I saw my stock image of my handspun yarn and favorite blue bowl that was used in a Design Seed featured in Lisa's post about the color teal. After a little digging I discovered that it was also featured in Apartment Therapy's post on Design Seed's site relaunch.
I was really excited to be a featured artist on Strauch's blog.
SpinQuest 2013 is in the books. Here’s an excerpt from the SpinArtiste write-up on the event.
I was very pleased to have 222 Handspun featured in Northern Virginia Craftaholics Feature Friday post. Northern Virginia Craftaholics is a group of crafty people who live in the Northern VA, D.C., and Maryland area and mainly sell their handmade items on Etsy.
