  • Carrie writes, “One of my fiber art pieces was selected for the Northern Colorado Weaver’s Guild: Fiber Celebration 2008 set to open in Fort Collins in May. The piece I submitted is called “Lost In Thought” and includes hand-felted wool, paint, wool scraps and hand-embroidery. This is the first juried show I have applied for.” Find more of Carrie’s work on her Whole Cloth Designs blog.
  • Jessica would like to direct you to two fun things she’s recently discovered: 1. The new CraftPad blog and 2. The Sparkle Power Sew-Along which is a new sew-along group started by Candace at sparkle power…
  • It just so happens that Candace also wrote in! She elaborates on the group: “I recently formed the sparkle power sew along group as a way to feel accountable for completing projects & a way to connect with other crafters. We are getting ready to focus on clothing & accessories for the months of April & May. It’s a great time to start on some spring/summer clothes for yourself or the little ones. Information on joining us is found on the blog: spsewalong.blogspot.com.”
