Show Time: Handmade Hamilton

Hey guys! I'll be at the Handmade Hamilton craft show and sale at the beautiful Staircase Theatre in Hamilton tomorrow. A great chance to make a dent in your Christmas list and support local artists at the same time. I hope to see you there! xo

Super Special Orders

After furiously preparing for the HandMade Market (which was a fantastic show, by the way), I spent last week defrosting my toes and catching up on some fun custom requests, or, as I like to call them, super special orders. Although custom often means quite a bit more work for me, I really love doing it. I love the break from routine. I love the slow relaxation of hand embroidery (and being able to watch TV while I do it). But most of all, I love the warm and fuzzy feelings that come from knowing I am creating such unique, personal gifts from the heart. This week, I inscribed secret love notes, played with monsters driving monster trucks, and scored big time with a hockey lover. It was great.

Inspired to create a personalized gift for someone on your Christmas list? Please remember that the ordering deadlines for custom items are getting real tight! Today is the last day for international customers. Americans and Canadians have until the end of next week. So please contact me sooner rather than later!

Show Time: Handmade Market

Between road trips, home improvements, quilt class and sewing for the holiday season, I sure haven't had time to blog lately, but I wanted to pop in quickly to share the news that I'll be at the Handmade Market this weekend! I've been wanting to do this one for awhile now and I'm super excited about it! It's held at the beautiful Honsberger Estate in Jordan, Ontario and there will be over 75 artists, plus wine and beer to sip while you shop, food trucks and an entire "culinary barn"! Oooh it's gonna be good! Hope to see you there!
