DIY- Series presented by Asheville Buncombe Library and Art Museum

Last nigt I trundled Milo into tthe car and drove like md woman to the library. Why? Yes, I love the library, but last night was really special. There was a showing of grrrlyshow, a documentary about women's zines in the 90's.
It was awesome!
there was a knitting circle, Milo made his first screenprint shirt and vegan chocolate cupcakes from Jodi Rhoden's Shortstreet Cakes! Malaprops also donated coffee. The highlight of the evening for me was getting to make my very own zine page.
I will try to get the next event up on the blog before it happens- if you love Etsy you would love these people!

Upcoming Local Craft Show

For those of you who are interested in working or attending live craft shows, there will be a show on Saturday, May 10th in Asheville, sponsored by St. Mary's Episcopal Church. The show will be held from 9 AM to 3 PM across from the church on the corner of Macon and Charlotte Streets. In addition to the craft booths, there will be baked goods and a lunch available. I plan to be there with quilts and sun-catchers, so I'd love to see you there!

Local crafters and artisans: They are still looking for vendors for this sale! If you're available on the 10th and are interested in vending for this show, please contact Pat Wooten at as soon as possible. She'll be able to give you more information on the show. I know that she's looking for higher end crafts, unique items, and traditional mountain crafts. If there are any potters or broom-makers out there, she'd love to hear from you!

Hope to see you all soon!

Asheville Etsy Freecyle Spring Cleaning Bonanza

I don't know about the rest of you out there, but about this time of year I get an uncontrollable urge to purge. And clean.
It occurred to me, being somewhat impatient, that it would be awesome to have a little Asheville Etsy get together and freecycle some of the stuff that I would ususally assign to my roadside free box.
Would any of you crafty fols be interested in having a freecycling party? We could each bring stuff that no longer blesses our homes and have a big ol' swap meet.
The remaining goodies could then go right down the road to the nearest thrift shop, freeing us all!
I would love to have folks gather at my home, but anyone else's is fine too!
Let me know what you think in a comment or convo me on Etsy.
Love and happy tax day,
