The girls at Kid Craft making leis with fresh flowers. It makes the store smell so good! Megan, the teacher, is amazing with coming up with fun and new craft ideas. These kids don't know how lucky they are!

Check out all our fun classes at Hands On 3rd

Just finished decorating the window at Hands on 3rd with the help of Than and Sasha. They're letting me set up front to work on my current and upcoming quilt projects, taking the quilt revolution to the streets! And I get to make awkward eye contact with everyone on 3rd Street. Come say hi!

(Special thanks to Than for making this vid!)

A great article this week in the New York Times about an upcoming fiber artist in SoHo, Dana Barnes. She makes giant crocheted granny squares, that are then felted and shaped into contemporary floor rugs, among other things.

Her studio looks so inspiring!

At work, with her 3 assistants. What a dream job!

A felted bedroom: felted blanket, felted slippers, and multiple felted rugs. Read the article here.

My second commissioned t-shirt quilt this year! I just finished laying everything out and the sewing will begin tomorrow morning. It is truly a dream that I can be making a living doing what I love, I'm so blessed!
