Venice Sample Sale

This Friday: be there or be square.

In addition to quilts, scarves, and napkins, I am excited to have a couple of things off the loom for sale including hatbands iced with pins by¬†Landlocd jewelry. I’ll also have some block printed totes by me and Arc of LA. Who can resist All for the Mountain- I wear my bolo and Mothership ring all the time- and if you haven’t seen Hannah Keefe’s work in person, now is the time. There are going to be so many beautiful things to spring for. Come see.

The turmeric/alkanet/sandalwood dyed yarn has come off the loom and found a new form: jacket, with buttonholes.

I recently made new silk chiffon scarves for spring using sandalwood, alkanet, and cutch for color, with subtle shibori stitchlines down the center of each. Available at JF & Son and shop.maricolous.com.

Steaming pots of turmeric and sandalwood.
