This weekend I will be holding forth at the East End Community School, at 195 North Street in Portland. This is the only craft fair that I do each year and it helps me to get in the Christmas Mood. I will be there from 6:00-9:00 on Friday, 10:00-5:00 on Saturday, and 11:00-4:00 on Sunday, along with many other amazing and talented craftsmen and artists. The photo above shows the Christmas Dolls. I make about 12 a year and they are keeping each other company in a wooden wine box waiting to appear at the show tomorrow evening. The photo to the left is of me at last year's show. I am peering around the Christmas Birds (made from recycled cashmere sweaters and Studio Scraps). And although you can't see it because of all the interesting fiber related gee gaws in the front, I am spinning. I take my spinning wheel with me to the show because it helps me to while away the afternoon, it gets me in a Christmas mood, and it tends to keep me from untoward impulsive actions. Please do come by and say hello. I would love to see you.
If you would like to stay with us this is the room we rent via Airbnb. I would love to see you and give you a tour of the studio, some quality time at the knitting table, some scones and warm drinks.
