Show Life

The way we do business, participating in juried shows over the years , traveling to different areas of the country, to often very interesting locations, most recently The Chicago Botanic Garden…. is a very personal experience……we make friends with other Artisans, meet their families, many of who come to help out at the show, or just drop by to catch up. Friendships also develop with clients and and their famillies……..that have followed our work over the years.

We just finished our first 3 show of this season, and I wanted to share some pics of good times, good friendships and families.

We are headed to Purchase, NY Oct 28-29 for

Crafts at Purchase

an event put on by Artrider, a family owned business we have been showing with for about 30 years!

And yes, we will all be catching up on whats been going on!

Pink & Black

Shopped for new skins last week and found some things I absolutely drooled over! They just arrived, so stay tuned as we make a few pieces for our december shows.

Helping me out was my favorite girl, sporting a leather apron one of her clients made for her. Great work accessory!

Who will be the lucky girl who gets to be warm and stylish?

Look out Chicago, you are our next stop!

Young Collectors, Women of Style

I have so much fun in the booth with the wide range of women who love our work.

It is so exciting when the right woman and coat find each other, the work is complete!

Recently more and more younger women in their 20’s-40’s seem to be finding us, and I’m thrilled they feel sexy and fashionable and comfortable and warm in our coats!

This young woman in her 20’s was smart enough to encourage her parents to go to the PMA Craftshow a few years ago, and she wound up with this coat. It was love at first sight!
