New items in our Etsy store

I'm not a perfectionist but I like to do things the best I possibly can.  It takes time and patience to edit photos, post them in the Etsy shop and add a description.  I know some shop owners who write one description for their hand woven scarves and it serves as the description for every one they list.  I'm not like that.  Each scarf creates a different look and creates a certain look when you wear it.  That's why I like to show scarves and shawls on our favorite model and not just laying on a table.

Jordan is so expressive and makes working with her such fun.  She adds personality to the scarf.

So, check out our Etsy shop by clicking here and you'll see lots of new listings and lots of great pictures of Jordan.  The scarves are available now, she's not.

Winter Show at GPNS Nov 17 & 18

We were invited to sell our hand made items at the Garrett Park Nursery School Crafts Fair.  The show is on Saturday and Sunday, November 17 & 18 from 10am to 5pm.
We are busy finishing several new items which we hope will be big hits.  In addition, we have two of our well loved ponchos for sale.
Scarf poncho
 We have this beautiful white poncho available and another one made using various green yarns.  We use 11 different yarns in each poncho.  The panels are knit by both Janet and Claudia, then Claudia crochets them together and Janet makes the fringe.  A truly joint venture.

Scarves, hats and hand mitts will be available.  Some are hand woven and some hand knit.  We make everything ourselves and they are all one-of-a-kind items.

This year we have a few items for the home.  A lovely hand woven plaid table runner and a set of hand woven placemats.

Have you ever seen a cloth bowl?  They are washable, unbreakable and reversible.  We will bring a few with us.  These are hand sewn and come in a variety of styles.

No show would be complete without our "Lotsaknot".  The scarf that started it all.  It's a unique design that can be worn with anything from suits to jeans.  It's the scarf for the scarf challenged.  Put it on in the morning and it stays tied and looking nice all day.  We have a variety of colors and designs available.

Hope to see you at Garrett Park Town Hall, 10814 Kenilworth Ave, Kensington, MD.   See the map at the left side of the page.
