New Scarves For Gift Giving

Connie and I have been very busy creating beautiful, hand dyed silk scarves for the perfect gift giving occasion. Sizes range from 6" x 40" to 8" x 45". All are priced at an affordable $35, to satisfy even the tightest budget this holiday season.

You can purchase them in Massachusetts at the following locations:
Salmon Falls Artisan Gallery in Shelburne Falls,
Skera Gallery in Northampton,
The Holiday Gift Show taking place at Greenfield High School, Friday Nov. 5th from 6 - 9pm and on Sat. Nov. 6th from 10am - 4pm. All proceeds go towards the Strings for Kids Program in the public schools.

They will also be available in NYC at
The American Craft Show Nov. 19, 20 and 21

And of course, one can always stop in at the studio showroom in downtown Greenfield.
More locations will be posted soon!

Here's a sneak preview. Remember that every scarf is a one-of-a-kind.

Dyeing with MX Fiber Reactive Dyes Workshop

I had a really awesome Columbus Day weekend teaching a dyeing workshop at the CherScapes Downtown Fiber Arts Studio.
With such a small group, everyone came away with an impressive stack of samples.

Aren't they gorgeous?!
