Baltimore Threadquarters

This evening Baltimore Threadquarters in Highlandtown celebrates it's first year anniversary with a reception from 5-9pm! Come out and cozy up, eat some snacks, try out a sampling of new Cascade yarn! AND while you're there check out the window display of some big ol' Cotton Monster creations from my personal collection, as well as pieces in the workshop gallery by artist Robert Hoffman.  If you can't make it to this shindig, be sure to pop over during the month of March to visit the monsters in the window and pick up some yarn, fabric or notions for your next craft project. Bmore Threadquarters also offers lots of great workshops for both beginner and experienced fiber folk! More info can be found on their website!

New in the Shop!

Slowly, but surely, I'm working on refilling the Cotton Monster Shop! I just added a dozen new beasties, and will be continuing to add more items as I make 'em this month. So keep checking back, or feel free to email me if you are looking for something in particular that you don't see. 

I got off to a slow start in the sewing studio this new year. I'm blaming it on getting over being sick, taking some time out to get my bookkeeping in order, co-teaching a ten day puppet residency with over 100 fifth graders, a trip to NYC, the icy cold winter and a general lack of sunshine! Phew! But I think I'm finally back on task (with the help of an occasional cup of coffee and back to back episodes of Twin Peaks)...and excited for what 2014 will bring!
