We have been busy spinning and sewing, getting ready for fall fairs and festivals.
We will be at the Ashland Farmer’s Market and the Natick Farmer’s Market tomorrow 9/11.
Our website/blog will be undergoing an upgrade in the weeks to come in order for us to provide more timely posts and to offer the array of products, which we typically have at the markets, online.
Walking with my family through the woods by our house we came upon a cluster of Hepatica growing out of the fallen oak leaves. Their delicate purple flowers raised above the forest duff reaching for the sunlight that trickled down through the branches to them. I designed this quilt from a series of photos that I took of them and the feeling that the day evoked. From these I created a quilt pattern with straight seams and paper piecing, sewed it with cotton fabric and batting, and free motion quilting.
Come join us to create flowers with a needle and wool. We will explore the basic tools, techniques, and materials of needle felting.
Saturday March 12, 10-12 at the Wayland Winter Market. Cost is $35 and includes a needle felting kit.
Registration required. Contact Jennifer at firstname.lastname@example.org

Laura Bushky from North Brook Farm and Mill used 58 yards of Rag Hill Farm hand spun art yarn with her mill spun yarn to create 4 hats and some hand warmers. Collaboration at its best.

I’m staring down a stack of Potholders that need their bindings sewn on. We each have our own mountains to climb.
