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!

The Best Kept Secret in The Berkshires! #FineCraft!

We kick off our fall season, every year since 2001, in one of the most culturally rich areas in the North East,

Great Barrington, Massachusetts, in The Berkshires, at

The Berkshire Crafts Fair

The buzz at the show is the quality here is on par with The Smithsonian and The PMA Craft Show,

and there is some great work here you won’t find anywhere else!

So if you don’t know of this secret, plan a weekend, take in the show and maybe a concert at Tanglewood, a dance performance at Jacob’s Pillow, some of the great shopping and galleries in Lenox, such as Sienna Patti Contemporary,  The Norman Rockwell Museum, and so much more!   If you do know about the secret, see you soon!

Like Buttah! Toshiki and Maryszka Shearlings Come to The Berkshires

We never like (& neither do our clients) light colored shearling in suede because of the care, but when we found this incredibly soft camel napalan finish with buttercream frosting, (I mean wool), we had to have it. The tannery in Spain delivered in time for us to make a few pieces, this slim swing trimmed with some new lambskin colors we purchased in France.

First showing this weekend in Great Barrington, Ma, at the Berkshire Craft Show , August 9-11

You can also purchase handbags from Dick & Dianne Muller, Michelle Lalonde, and shoes from Rob & Barbara Matthews!
