Howard Street Handmade

  Wanted to let everyone know about a rockin' upcoming show opportunity!

-The First Howard Street Handmade will take place on Saturday, March 21 from 11 am to 5pm at 227 Haywood Road, in Asheville, NC.

There are 20 total slots available for vendors. These slots are 3' each, so vendors need to either bring their own 3' table or be willing to share a 6' table with one other vendor.  Table fee will be a special introductory $10. After the first one, if all goes well, the next HSH will be one month from the first one, and the table fee will be somewhere between $15 to $25.  If it continues to be successful, we will have them more often, every two weeks or even every weekend.  The table fee is a one time commitment for each event.  There's no obligation to be a recurring vendor, however space preference will be given to recurring vendors.

Applications are due soon! February 22, so hurry.  If you have any questions, you can ask us or email the ground at howardstreethandmade@gmail.com. Email for an application if you are interested!

Ellen and I are really excited about this, and we'd like to see lots of people there! 

Piece out!

Down Twitter-Bird!

Wow--Michie is on the road and all about updating the Twitter! In honor of her new-found love of twittering and her constant take to the skies, I have decided to make this post about my favorite bird-related things.

1. This Burton jacket! It's a little hard to see, but there are all these sweet little birds on a wire perched all over the jacket.
2. "The Littlest Bird" by The Be Good Tanyas.
3. Spool's bird mobile--I made one for my new niece, Annabelle. I'll post pictures just as soon as Annabelle gets to the oxygen-part of this world (as opposed to the womb-part) and I make it back down to SC.
4. "Winter's Come and Gone" by Gillian Welch.
5. The Bountiful Cities Project's Annual Birdhouse Project (by way of Jodi's blog!) Hmm...I wonder if they'll accept a quilt of a birdhouse?
6. "Blackbirds" by Erin McKeown...starting to get a little idea of my musical tastes? :)
7. The Littlest Birds--a great little children's shop here in Asheville. Something tells me someone else loves The Be Good Tanyas....
8. Joel Dewberry's Aviary collection...I think I need 20 yards of the Almond-colored sparrows.
9. "Texas" by Po' Girl...ok it's not bird-related but Michie had to fly to get there!
10. The bird quilt I'm about to start working on for Annabelle!

Ok, that's all for now.
