Welcome.

In a week where my city gave a voice to all members of our community then said, "oops, never mind," it felt good to finish my #welcomeblanket. Made with yarn purchased from three locally owned shops, using a stitch I first learned from my grandmother. This blanket is headed to Chicago to join 2,000 miles of warm welcome before finding a home with a new immigrant to the United States.

It's not too late to knit, crochet or sew a blanket for this project--deadline November 4. Details at www.welcomeblanket.org.

Open House this Saturday!

Ready to see 2,000 degree clear glass transformed into something else entirely? Stop by DC GlassWorks (5346 46th Ave, Hyattsville, MD, 20712) this Saturday from 12:00 to 5:00 pm!

As part of the annual Gateway Arts District Open Studio Tour you can get a behind the scenes look at it all and chat with some fab local artists. I'll also have a community craft project going in my studio and I'd love your help with it!
