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!

My One Second of Fame

I had my one second of fame today! I was hoping for the 15 minutes promised by Andy Warhol but I can't complain. 

On March 27th I got a call from a producer of CBS Sunday Morning News letting me know that they are doing a feature on America's handmade economy and want to feature some of my bags on the set. I was quite excited. I dropped off some of my handbags at the studio that day. Posted above is my security entrance card. My first name is spelled wrong and my head is turned to the side because the producer asked me a question just as the security guard was taking the photo. I was allowed in the building with my profile shot so all was well. 

The CBS feature was broadcast nationally today. I was not at home and only had access to a small portable black and white TV with so so reception. Yes, rabbit ears. In the opening shot, CBS Sunday Morning News anchor Charles Osgood points to my handbags for about a second. he he  But I am still honored that they chose my bags from the th…

Home Sweet Home

After spending several months on a job assignment that took me away from my studio, I'm finally back in St. Augustine, FL. I worked with a wonderful group of folks and enjoyed my stay in Tarrytown, NY which is about 40 minutes by train into NYC. 
I'm eager to get back to designing and creating and have lots of new ideas I can't wait to get started on. 

Above is a shot of Millie, a wonderful coworker back in New York, modeling the Harris Tweed Patchwork Satchel. Wish I had her here for my next photo shoot!
