On The Mend

I’m on a little bit of a denim kick lately…I can’t imagine why. While searching for inspiration lately, I came across boro fabrics and sashiko stitching, a form of Japanese hand quilting done to repair old clothes and household items. Menders used a small running stitch to bind together multiple

Field Trip: Gardiner Craft Supply Sale

Last weekend, my sister Raheli and I went on a field trip to the Gardiner Public Library for their annual Craft Supply Sale. They sell yarn, fabric, books, notions and other gently used supplies. I’ve been wanting to go ever since I drooled over her Ezy-Hem Gauge that she picked

Wedding Project #2

It must be wedding season. I’ve been working on another wedding gift for another pair of madly-in-love-with-each-other friends, I’ll call them Gwam. Right before I left for a two week road trip (photos are coming in another post), I realized in a panic that I didn’t have a project to

Big Plans for a Big Chuppah
