Find Me at Cinch!

Two of my upcoming workshops 
will be at the fabulous Cinch Art Space in Cortland!

Perfect Poncho
Saturday, September 21st, 2:00-4:00PM

Join us as we hand sew one clever, simple seam 
to make a timeless, organic jersey poncho. 
It flatters any figure, can easily be dressed up or down, 
and will be that cover up you reach for again and again.
The garment is so quick to sew up that we'll spend time 
learning gorgeous options for further embellishment. 
Whether you prefer solid fabric (like Carol's, above) 
or heavily embellished, you'll leave the workshop 
wearing your signature style!

Fearless Fingerless Gloves
Thursday, September 26th, 6:00-8:00PM

Surprise yourself as you learn how easy it is 
to hand sew these  organic cotton jersey gloves. 
Together, we'll custom fit your pattern, 
learn one simple stitch, a few tricks,
and before you know it you'll have a stylish pair
of fingerless gloves just in time for Fall.

View samples for both workshops at Cinch.

Call Cinch today to reserve your spot around the work table:
I'm looking forward to gathering together in the
bright, welcoming and cheery workspace that 
Tammie, Kristin and Brenda have created! 
From the dye pot:
Before they depart for the long winter, 
I had to capture and preserve some rose leaves. 
Over the past few chilly days Stanley quickly
remembered how to snuggle up, aaaww!

One final note:
With Silver Trumpet now my full time occupation, 
and my weekends returning to personal & family time, 
my posts will soon change to a week day - a happy change! 
Please stay tuned for the new posting day, 
as well as more Silver Trumpet goodness to come!


  1. I am so sorry that I will be out of town for your poncho workshop! Both projects look just wonderful, and in your capable hands, I am sure that participants will be more than pleased!

  2. Thanks Tracy! I'm sorry your shining face won't be at the table, too. Good thing you know where to find me in case the urge strikes to make one. ;)

  3. The workshop looks like so much fun! I'm sorry I live so far away.


    1. Once again, I too wish we could be doing this together! One day, Lara! :)
