July 29, 2018


Iím headed to the American Craft Council's San Francisco show at Fort Mason next week. Iíve got a great group of garments ready. I have a new pullover in cotton with patchwork piecing and many new takes on my quilted shapes. With boxes and boxes of quilted scraps from over the years, I decided to utilize them to make patchwork accents for my vests and jackets. It was a fun direction and I like the results.



The summer here in Northern New Mexico has been mostly defined by the heat and extreme drought. July has finally brought monsoon moisture and cooler temps. The garden is growing and setting blossoms for fruit. Picking our first squash today....and cucumber tomorrow! Lots of kale and greens for a month now. Itís such a pleasure for me to grow some of my own food.


I hope you venture out to this great show in one of Americaís most beautiful, if not THE most beautiful city. August is foggy and Iím looking forward to the moisture and mystery of it. Iíll be embracing the fog!







I hope you will visit the show. Iím in booth 815 on the west perimeter. Iím looking forward to seeing you there!






For those of you who live elsewhere, my work is now available at Bellagio Art to Wear, at the Biltmore in Ashville, NC, and at Ann Ahn on Madison Avenue in New York, NY, Dreamweaver in Sarasota, FL, and at Hand's On in Key West,FL.


My web site is now getting difficult to view in many browsers. A new website is on the schedule for this year. Until I get to that , please try an old browser. The static pages should be easy to view.



Hope to see you next week in San Francisco!
