Checking In


How's it going? Last summer I took a hiatus from sewing, blogging etc and I am unintentionally doing the same this year. While I have been working on new ideas for products as well as doing a few shows here and there, the blog has definitely been quiet. I figure you can't force these things so I'll just be doing updates here and there. :)

Did a very cool outdoor popup shop with Moneris in June promoting their new device
PAYD Pro which allows you to accept debit transactions!

My hiatus was a forced one as my sewing machine finally started to rebel.
A lovely man came over and whipped her back into shape. Phew!

Spending days off in yarn shops, as you do.

Last Sunday I did a shibori workshop lead by the lovely Arounna of bookhou
in Crown Flora's beautiful new shop space.

My finished pieces--still need to be ironed.

Waiting for the streetcar--it's felt like fall last week!

We had groupons for the Textile Museum and I ogled some looms.

Until the next time!

TEST Springtime Marketplace

Another show this weekend! This time with the Toronto Etsy Street Team. I did their Springtime Marketplace last year and it was my very first craft show! I blogged about it...a lot. :) So excited to participate again and mark one year of craft shows!

Here's a link to the gorgeous lookbook put together by the team leaders: http://issuu.com/thunderpeep/docs/2014_spring_lookbook

There's going to be tons of amazing sellers so if you're in the area, admission is free!

What's up?

It's mid May and it's still cold. We had a week of warmth and then went right back to cold. I feel like we are going to skip spring entirely and just be head first into summer. Which, frankly, I'm ready for!

I've been working hard at some new designs--hopefully they will all be ready to debut at a few shows in the coming weeks! But more about that later. ;)

Onwards to the picture post.

I could spend all day supply shopping.

Feeding chickadees. These guys were super eager!
(Apologies for my blinding hand.)

Beautiful marble patterns.

Finally perfected my packaging game. At least for now...

There was a brief period where I thought I was done with socks.
That time has ended. Welcome back, socks.

New card holders! Among the few prototypes a'comin!

One of a Kind Online Shop

Hi all!

The One of a Kind Show just launched their online shop yesterday and I'm so excited to announce that I'm a part of it!

You can find my profile and shop here.

I've only ever sold online with Etsy so this is a fab opportunity to reach a new audience! It's also been a heck of a learning curve figuring out a totally new interface. Always a good idea to step out of your comfort zone. ;)

Let me know what you think!
