Buy local. Support the arts.
The next weeks find me showing in several places.Saturday, October 11, 10-4: Rhode Island School of Design Student and Alumni Sale Benefit Street, Providence. This show still has the best bargains and the most creativity per square foot. I'll feature my key bags and a new line of wristlets. Plus, altered vintage aprons, anyone?
Sunday, October 12: SOWA Open Market, 10am to 4pm. Featuring Boston Handmade, a group of over 25 area artists and craftsmen who met through Etsy. I'll share a tent with Blue Alvarez Designs. (Mmmmm, knits.) Other wonderful artists include the incredible Mimi Kirchner and the very talented Jessica Burko.
November 1: Concord Holiday Artisans Fair. 10-4. Sponsored by the Concord Unitarian Church. My first venue and still one of my favorites. An old-time feeling. Good quality work at reasonable prices, in a friendly setting.
November 15: Open House, 13 South Randolf Street, Poughkeepsie NY. My sister once again will host an afternoon of wine, delicious food, and recession-proof gift items by real people. Email me if you'd like detail.s
December Western Avenue Studios double weekend, December 6-7 and 13-14, noon-5 each day. The eight women of Lowell Fiber Studio will be working overtime. Western Avenue Studios houses over 160 artists now, making our Open Studios a warm, energizing destination, and one you can easily visit more than once. Come up to studio 512 for tea!
You can also find my work at Lowell's Loading Dock Gallery, Cambridge Artists' Cooperative in Harvard Square, and the Weston Arts and Crafts Association Christmas sale at the Josiah Smith Barn in Weston.
