Sew Your Wild Oats on Saturday, Dec. 12th.


Sewing Her Wild Oats -- On Her Hat., Digital ID 825308, New York Public LibraryI'm wrapping up the final details for December 12th's Handmade Crafternoon and it should be a really fun and inspiring time. I hope that you can join me and my co-host Maura as we welcome our THREE special guests (Denyse Schmidt, Liesl Gibson, and Heather Ross) who will talk about what inspires them in their work and what books and magazines they love here at the Library.

Here are a few updates that you'll want to note: The Location: Room 206, on the south end of the second floor of the Stephen A. Schwarzman Building. We've moved this Handmade Crafternoon to a bigger room in order to accommodate more of you. The Supplies: We'll have instructions and some supplies on hand to make a few different little sewn projects, but if you want to be sure that you have everything you need to take home your own finished bauble, we recommend that you bring along the following: needle and thread, scissors, and square foot of fabric. And of course, as always, if you're working on a project already and want to bring it along, you are welcome to do so. Can't wait to see you on Saturday, 2:00pm!

It was a wonderful event.

It was a wonderful event. In one of the books passed around I read a beautiful quotation by Agnes Martin about the significance of location on art that is created, something I have been thinking about. Great poster, btw!
