Merryberry Market

Merryberry Market, originally uploaded by Needlings.

I spent the evening of this "Black Friday" past participating in a local market to raise money for Westdale Children's School. We had so much fun and spent the night drinking apple cider and listening to little kids play various instruments inside a cozy wood adorned hall in Westdale. I loved it! It got me started thinking about Christmas spirit so all we need is some snow and it will truly feel like (almost) December.

It's a busy sewing weekend for me staying caught up with orders and making a few more odds and ends for my table to replenish what sold in the past shows in order to get ready for the last Makers' Market of the year downtown on James North on December 5th. This will be my last show for the year after a little flurry of them so it will be a little bit of a relief to concentrate on some other Needlings things.

Wish me luck!

I hope everyone had a lovely November!

Show Season

MacFair '09, originally uploaded by Needlings.

This photo is from MacFair which took place last week at the McMaster Museum of Art November 11-13. A day after my birthday!
It was so fun to have my mom there with me for her first show (there's her table of pretty scarves and cowls next to mine) and it was a great start to the season.
Tomorrow is the first Makers' Market holiday show at St. Paul's in Westdale and the following weekend brings two more shows, before the last holiday Makers' Market at the Cathedral on James North on December 5th.
Busy busy busy!

So my exciting news that leads me to have only excitement about the upcoming holiday busy-ness is that I am now a full-time all-the-time Needlings maker! I feel so lucky and happy and ready.
I hope to keep you all more updated on the future goings-on with myself and Needlings. And most of all I hope you all are happy and well.
