The Fiber Studio

So many of you have heard that we have been putting together an atelier for housing our Penelope Craft and MatherKunst businesses. Well, it is now in the final stages of completion, and the final necessities have been coming together nicely.

This is what the studio looked like when we first acquired it:

And, after much painting, building, cleaning, and assorted labor, it is now really shaping up. (Truth be told, Hyland did most of this work himself. Thank god for handy men.)

Most of our things have been moved over, Hyland hung up some artwork, and it is really becoming homey.

We owe thanks to so many people that helped out in a variety of ways, whether by donating a counter for the kitchen, finding us great pieces of furniture, picking up a paintbrush, or just showing up to support us.

Oh yeah, and we got a stair too. These photos are a little older...

We're still a little fluid on the date of our opening party, but we'll be sure to post it everywhere we know once we're up and running.

Anything for Greenpeace

Recently I created two socks to be used as a willie warmer for an awareness campaign for Greenpeace. It was really fun and I think turned out well. Go check out the spot on the director, Daniel Bird's site here.

Fun times!
