Studio News


Pictured above is the Jewel Cut Bag now available in the shop.  It's a larger bag with plenty of room for your daily essentials and more. I plan to introduce a few more larger sized bags to the shop very soon. 


 This morning I shipped a batch of recent orders. 



Over the past few days I've been busy working on several custom orders. 



A couple weeks ago I introduced a batch of Harris Tweed Foldover Clutches to the shop. I'm really loving this design in the wool. The clutch pictured above just sold and reminded me that it's time to place an order for more tweed for upcoming fall and winter bags. 



 I have a wonderful selection of Harris Tweed samples to peruse. Shipping from Scotland can take several weeks so I need to place an order soon. Harris Tweed is quite costly and so is the shipping so I can only invest in a modest quantity. Orders are placed once a year. Very often I will only have enough of one weave to create 2 to 3 bags. So if you like one grab it while you can!

The Pesky Cat's Day Dream

Katzenhohle by Dornroeschen Filzunikate I recently came across this incredible cat bed made by German artist Dornroeschen Filzunikate. This beautiful piece of functional art called a Katzenhohle , cat cave, is handmade of felted wool. It's definitely the most unique cat bed I have ever seen. It would bring a bit of nature into my urban NYC home. I think my Anni would love a cat cave although her favorite spots right now are the pillow behind my head in bed, a straw basket that was meant to store magazines and a storage box made from fabric that becomes a hammock when she sleeps in it. My sweet Anni FOX 5 Update : A while back I wrote a post about a story that Fox 5 news was doing on Etsy and the handmade market. I was interviewed in my studio as part of the feature. An Etsy press agent recently informed me that the story aired April 15th and he also missed it. He said he is trying to get a copy of it from the studio. I'll be sure to post a link to it when it becomes ava

Spring is Here!

To celebrate the spring equinox I decided to take the entire day off from working in the studio. OK, I confess I did sew one button onto an applique, but that's it! The rest of the day was spent bike riding, watching waves and smelling spring flowers wafting through the air. The weather was absolutely beautiful with temperatures in the mid 70's. No jacket required. Just a t-shirt and sunglasses. Hope you are all having a great weekend and enjoying the arrival of spring!
