This weekend is the big weekend for a talented group of artisan craftsmen who will be showing and selling their work in and around Charlottesville, Virginia. I’m fortunate to be part of this group, Artisans Studio Tour. I will be showing my work at Mud Dauber Pottery.
This year I’ll have a new style of scarves, using hand-dyed thread from Kathrin Weber of Blazing Shuttles. Her color work is beautiful and I love the feel of the material she uses. I’ll still have some of my traditional scarves, too. Our central Virginia fall colors are still gorgeous so there will be beauty both inside and outside the local studios.
This is my big chance each year to meet customers face-to-face and talk about my process and what inspires me. I look forward to it each year and this year is no different. We’ll talk over food and cups of hot cider. I’ll have my demo loom there and people can throw the shuttle a few times if they want.
We have all been working hard to make the tour a success. Here’s hoping we have plenty of visitors and get to reconnect with people who love fine craft.
