News


Now that the Spring season shows are over, I can update you with some news and new items at my Etsy Shop

I had a wonderful time at Morristown Show, Crafts on Columbus and Lyndhurst where I met many new costumers and old ones.





Besides on working on new items for the next season, I am organizing the studio to be more functional for some workshops in the near future. Stay tuned I will be posting workshop dates on my Events Page.


This green scarf recently added to my Shop was inspired by some designs of Olga Uzor, take a look at her amazing work.





I also joined a wonderful group of Textile Artists called TafaList, if you are a fiber artist take a look and join us or if you are a collector come and browse through thousands of unique OOAK pieces.

Ola , estou voltando hoje depois de dois dias fora, estava no estado de Massachusetts , mais precisamente na cidade de East Hampton, realizando um sonho... conheci a loja New England Felting Supply,para quem faz feltro assim como eu, imagina o que seja. E alem disso fui me reciclar, num workshop de dois dias, com a super talentosa designer, originaria da Zambia e radicada na Holanda, com graduacao na Universidade de Nottingham Trent da Inglaterra Sharit . Aprendi tanto mais, me capacitou imensamente, tirou duvidas , acrescentou tanto... realmente nada melhor do que se reciclar com quem ja esta muitos passos a nossa frente. Fiquei muito feliz com sua tecnica, dicas e elogios ( por que nao tambem aceitar os elogios, nao? :) Depois desses dias imersa no mundo da feltragem, na companhia de pessoas tao gabaritadas, so me faz reafirmar o quanto a feltragem e' importante para mim, e quero cada vez mais me aperfeiçoar e dividir com meus alunos Clique aqui para ver mais fotos desse evento. E abaixo esta a minha jacket feltrada em Merino, fios de seda e Seda pintada a mão. Eu ja tinha tinha feito outras anteriormente... mas nao se comparam com essa... tambem com a supervisao da mestra Sharit nao poderia ter sido diferente... Fiquei muito feliz com o resultado final, acabamento, textura, leveza, design... Agora é colocar a mão na massa, digo na lã :) Obrigada Sharit!!!! Até breve bjks

Old news and new news

Hello all !!!Long time!!! Some old news... Not having much time to post lately. I returned to sell on shows after a big gap. I am feeling very well Thank God!!! The scary moments are over. For those who doesn't know, I had thyroid cancer... but it was detected right at the first stages. I went through 2 surgeries last year... and I am very thankful for the outcome... I had great doctors, nurses, technicians... not to mentioned the support of my DH without him it would not be possible to handle this situation... my family and friends ... my faith in God. I feel now like a new me... stronger, more positive, more confident ... it is weird how we, most of the times, learn through pain. I now see life from another perspective and more than ever I believe we all have a reason to be in this life and go through what we need to go to grow and progress ... it doesn't matter if it doesn't seem like... we all grow for the better... If you out there have similar situation and would like to ask me questions about the treatment feel free , I will be more than happy to share my experience with you! Ok, enough said about this... I needed this catharsis :) But all that just to say hi again... I am back, and I will try to be more present around here... but if not you can see me on my Facebook Fan Page or on my Facebook Personal page *********************************** Some new news... Father's day is approaching and my husband was very patient and gave me a few moments of his time to model some of my scarves :) Just uploaded the new scarves to my Etsy Shop. More to come this week. xxoo
