Oh what a weird week…
I have only left the house to run 2 short errands since last Wednesday night, and will continue to stay put. The other day, when I pulled up at the print shop I use, to pick up my order, it was handed to me through the car window, wearing gloves. Truly a strange alternate reality right now.READ MORE

I’m very excited to share the new book by Karen Lewis out now. Wabi-Sabi Sewing: 20 Sewing Patterns for Perfectly Imperfect Projects. I’ve had the book for a few weeks now, and now that a few big projects are off my worktable, I get to dive in.READ MORE
The Found and Foraged Collection has been an idea in the making for a long time. My thought was to create a way to inspire me to keep producing original work. So often, when a creative passion turns into a business, the process can become overwhelmingly uninspiring. It can seem like too much computer work, not enough playing with fabric and thread. I don’t want that to happen. So why not challenge myself to create new pieces of art? New pieces that allow me to play with new creative ideas, concepts, and materials. It has been pure joy to work on these pieces.

Being the only one at the helm of this ship called Wise Craft Handmade ⎯ the only one to produce, make things happen, create new products, post online, write patterns ⎯ is both challenging and exciting. There is never a time that I don’t feel I could be doing more- more work, more reaching out, more social media, more product design. There is pressure to work more efficiently, quicker, smarter, and do all the necessary things to make more of a business to my creative world.
