Taking the Show on the Road

Leaving monday for the mid coast, to show our new work at the wonderful

American Craft Exposition at the incredible Chicago Botanic Garden

in Glencoe Il.

Our booth is in the Greenhouse Gallery, right across from the succulents garden.

Come by if you are anywhere nearby, or book your plane ticket now!

I promise you won’t be disappointed in the creativity on display in

craft form and nature.

Heading to The Berkshires!

Our season is beginning, and I am on my way to Great Barrington, Ma. to the wonderful

Berkshire Crafts Fair

If you are up there, come see the show, and our new shearlings!

Indoors, airconditioned, another cultural event not to miss in the area!

Feeling Blue

Feeling blue on this very rainy day, that does not feel

like spring.

Somehow this image of Michaela in our color block fringed jacket fits my melancholy mood.  It’s a one of a kind, and available….size six.

Call me.

And by the way, in reference to my last post,

we didn’t make the cut.

Feeling Blue.

Biting our Nails!

As we sit quietly in our studio creating new work in our off season, another thing that goes on is applying to shows, and anxiously awaiting the results.

Although our medium of Leather has very few applicants and competition, it is not a slam dunk that we will be accepted by the jury (or selection committee which interprets the jurors scores)

Today is one of those days we are biting our nails, so I am posting a pic of a new piece, hoping it will bring us luck!

Stay tuned for updates…..

Custom Work in Leather

One of our long time clients had a dream. A purple leather coat. Over the years she has been a true lover of our work, a patron who has one of just about every collection we ever created, always special order as she has her own unique figure ,as many of us do.

This week she is traveling to Germany to visit family and friends, and wanted to show them all that older ladies can rock a sense of style, as she does, always with a smile on her face. So before shipping that purple leather coat, with a “surprise” silk lining, I had to snap a few pics, on me, although not quite my size, you get the idea! Bon Voyage Helene!

 

Do you have a dream coat in mind?

Talk to us!

Spring Wrap Up

Wow this Spring has been a whirlwind, busy, and lots of fun!

Baltimore, Morristown, Marlboro, Saratoga & Chicago…Thank you!

Many of you have new coats to finish up this chilly spring, and start off your fall fresh.

We are off for some R & R, & designing new work, so stay tuned for that

and refreshed upcoming events page.

For now I will throw it back to a few weeks ago, to the finale of our show at

Electric City Couture in Saratoga Springs

ECC finale

Electric City Couture

We had such an amazing experience this weekend working with Corey Aldrich at the Electric City Couture runway show and Pop Up event in Saratoga Springs, NY

A fundraiser for Universal Preservation Hall, a Performing Arts Education and Entertainment venue for Saratoga Springs, NY. The restoration of the Saratoga Springs Universal Preservation Hall has been a true community project. The sponsors and attendees came out in full force, we had such a great time meeting and working with all of you. We surely left a piece of our hearts in your community, and hope to be back soon!

Thank-You!

Here are some snaps of our trip, preparing for show, fitting some of the models, our pop up shop, time out with local artist friends, including visiting Textile Studio….it was a whirlwind of a weekend!
