It's Craft Show Season!

I've had a few requests from my many, many readers (hi Dad!) to put my holiday craft show on the blog, so here it is!

It's gonna be a busy month, starting with the bg craft fest on Nov. 2.

Then it's up north Nov. 8 for the Sonoma Marketplace Shopping Center Fall Crafts Faire. (I don't have a poster for this one.)

Patchwork Creative: Modern Makers Festival is back at Jack London Square on Nov. 16 and then I get to take a week off before heading back up north for my return engagement at the Petaluma Holiday Crafterino!

So mark your calendars, spread the word and start your holiday shopping list ... I don't know about you but I'm dreaming of a crafty Christmas!

Fall Sewing Extravaganza

Making a Flap

Loakal, which has been selling my upcycled clutches and coin purses for a few months now, requested some shoulder bags in January and this week I was finally able to deliver (literally; I dropped them off). I made three of them with this graphic upholstery fabric I picked up at the East Bay Depot for Creative Reuse, and I love the way they turned out. I think the upcycled fabric sample pocket and magnetic snap are pretty dang good. Confession time: I really made four, and kept one for myself. Sewist's prerogative?

Get 'Em While They're Hot Pads

My colorful pot holders have been a hot seller at my craft fairs this season and I was almost completely out, so I was glad for the chance to whip up a new batch this weekend. This should get me through the holidays quite nicely!
