When the lovely folks at Galler Yarns sent along a free sample of their Inca-Eco 100% Organic Cotton Yarn for me try, I opened a package from them a short time later and found myself in that happy place where my craft world is full of possibility. This yarn is aqua (my fav!) and can [...]
We’ve been hard at work on issue 6 of the magazine and very happy to report that we’ll be picking it up from the printer March 23. You can reserve your copy here. This issue is packed with people and projects that I hope will inspire hours of creative time this spring. We’re covering everything [...]

When this happened to Annabelle, the little girl featured in the new picture book “Extra Yarn” written by Mac Barnett and illustrated by Jon Klassen, she decided to knit herself a sweater. There was extra yarn left over, so she knit [...]
The daffodils are blooming and I’m ready for some warm weather. How about you? I’m pretty sure my treadmill is about to bust. It’s at least 10 years old and making a lot of noise, so things aren’t looking good. So I’m thinking it would really help my cause to have some warm temps to [...]

Amelia, 5, stood on a chair and helped wind several skeins of yarn, while I feasted my eyes on [...]
This Sunday my newspaper column will feature West Michigan crochet enthusiast, Kendra Wineman. After meeting Kendra and seeing her colorful stash of reclaimed yarn and cute, crochet nesting bowls, I decided to unravel a sweater and make some bowls for my daughters to organize trinkets in their room.
The nice folks at PAAS sent me some egg decorating kits for today’s craft segment on “Take Five & Company.” The kits include neon dyes and cute stickers to make eggs that look like monsters and fish. Since these egg dyeing kits are self-explanatory, I’ll focus on showing you how I use these dyes to [...]
The kids need new winter gear, so I will be transforming this yarn into granny square hats (Similar to this one.) and scarves. Do you have any favorite granny square patterns? I’m looking for new inspiration.
Today my Grand Rapids Press art & craft column is about Sierra Cole, a fiber artist I mentioned in a previous post. Here’s a preview to get you started… Sierra Cole might be the fastest knitter I’ve ever met. Her metal needles moved with near-lightning speed as we chatted about how she landed a great [...]
Doesn’t this yarn look fabulous? It ranked high among the crafty eye candy for sale at Renegade this past weekend. It was fun to chat briefly with Liz Maly, the talented maker of this lovely hand-dyed yarn and other fabulous Felt Cafe goods. Check out the super cute, felted baby booties. This photo kind of [...]
