Down to the Wire — in the best way!

I’m prepping up a storm right now, because I’m delighted to announce (belatedly!) that I will be a vendor at the Indie Untangled Trunk Show in (eeek) less than three weeks.

Find me at booth 23 with One Geek To Craft Them All!

I’ll have DPN cases and box bags:

I’ll also have a lot of drawstring bags, which I’m still frantically sewing up:

Come by and say hi! And watch this space later this week for a very exciting announcement!

Lady Astronaut-Inspired Bags!

One of my favorite authors, Mary Robinette Kowal, is releasing two lovely books in the Lady Astronaut of Mars universe: The Calculating Stars, and The Fated Sky.

I cannot wait to listen to the audiobooks of these books: Mary is an embarrassingly talented writer, and has been tweeting all kinds of amazing details about her research at NASA for the books.

So when I saw this fabric, I knew I had to make bags inspired by the books:

These bags are available in my Etsy shop, and as always, 30% of the ticket price will be donated to the Hispanic Federation.

 

New manatee bags for FlintKids.org

While I was abroad this summer I visited the Wollmeise store in Pfaffenhofen an der Ilm: I’ll post more of a summary of the visit in a week or so when I’ve sorted out all my photographs.

For now, I wanted to post about an exciting fact: we’ve hit $1,500 in the fundraiser for the Flint Child Health Development Fund!

In celebration, and because some friends asked, I’ve added a new product to the shop: manatee drawstring bags.

I’ve also added box bags to the shop for the very first time, starting with the manatee print.  They’re available lined in mustard, teal, or coral, just like the drawstring bags above.

I’m delighted to be able to turn my time and fabric into donations, and want to thank those of you who have been along for the ride.  I’m exploring getting my stitch markers into shops, and can’t wait to share a couple of non-fundraiser projects with you in the near future.
