a special thank you to domino magazine for this beautiful shot of sac 1 canvas/natural hanging on a rack with rachel craven dresses – a familiar scene from nature. #likewedo. I will definitely have some canvas combination sac 1 and sac 2 and rachel will definitely have some dresses and textiles at the EPCF.
everywair sprays are back! in preparation for the season of traveling, gifting, stuffing stockings, housewarming, I spent 3 super delightful and productive days deep in everywair spray production mode at the le feu de l’eau candle factory. when taking care of business with jo and wendy, working hard felt like hardly working. thanks ladies! see them at the EPCF this weekend, too!
look forward to seeing you there!Share
I am pleased to announce that I will be selling at the Farm & Flea Holiday Market, this weekend November 25, 26 and 27th at the Basilica, in Hudson, NY. (more about the Basilica, here.) As a way to introduce a few participating makers, my dear friend Kate Orne wrote and photographed a portrait series in her journal, Upstate Diary, including yours truly!
Farm & Flea Holiday Market at Basilica Hudson will be my first (and only) east coast craft fair this season before I head back to Los Angeles for the Echo Park Craft Fair. So, do make the adventure to scenic Hudson, NY this holiday weekend. The location is perfect for a day trip as it is literally across the road from the train station. I am so looking forward being there and seeing all of you!

the nytimes t mag gave a glowing review (people, it is time to retire the word hippie) and there’s a super nice feature in the new santa barbara magazine.
there’re practically 0 degrees of separation between ab and carrie and matt of denim revivalists imogene + willie. it’s an all around love fest. i too, covet the catherine jean and will be adding it to my denim pile post haste. here’s a little IG love. be sure to check their store when in nashville! a road trip is definitely planned for 2015.
ever thankful for good friends, family and fun times. xaShare
it is finally some kind of autumn here in southern california. it even rained one night and morning! it is finally crisp more often than not. so, in response to this news worthy weather situation , a new jesse kamm cape had to be added to the mix. the crisp air has also brought a flurry of good tidings in the form of press and new accounts.
and some new stockiest: hello nashville and imogene + willie!
and in case you hadn’t heard, domino magazine is back on newsstands and with a new online store to boot.
i just love this season. the weather, the autumnal harvest of fruits (i LIVE for apples, persimmon, pomegranate…) and veggies (sweet potato, squash, cauliflower, tomato soup, lentils carrots…), cozy clothes and lots going on -making, doing, seeing and recharging. onward forward. backward never.
sac 1, sac2 are now part of Martha Stewart’s eBay curation: Martha Stewart American Made. pinch me! before there was artisanal, seasonal, super-charged, bio-dynamic, crystal filtered, sustainable, local, heirloom –air, Martha Stewart has been championing American makers from day one. from her shows on pbs, cbs, to hgtv, her magazines, her catalogues ( -remember those catalogues???) she has been introducing us to the ‘kind of their kind’, makers, doers, herders, harvesters, people who create things with care, attention to detail, high quality over flimsy mass production, people who work with nature and natural materials. the butcher, the baker, the candle stick maker, we met the ones to know first on Martha’s shows. to me, she is the god-mother of the current crafting craze leading to the success and popularity of well-curated craft fairs. so it took 20 plus years to sow those seeds she threw but here we are, deep in the digital age, doing analog things with dowels, or hand blocks, or lathes, or leather crafting saddle-makers, loom weaving, dying hand spun yarns with plant dyes -then bringing the goods to the people via virtual and real time markets. this is old school/new school crafting and it’s a really good thing so, yes, I am kind of beyond jazzed to have products included in her curation! read more about Martha Stewart American Made and the 2 day market in Grand Central Station in autumn.
the year in pictures. thanks to you, everyw’air was everywhere and sac 1 sac 2 were partout. it was good. inspiring, encouraging, uplifting and good. and i thank you! in no particular order, a shout out to the people, places and enterprises that put the wonder in my wonderful: feal mor, bazar, platform experiment, chay, dream collective, moon juice, beautiful dreamers, priscillawoolworth.com, alder & co, beatrice valenzuela, garde, jess browne, storefrontLA/parachute market, echo park craft fair, kneeland mercado, pressSF, west coast craft, le feu de l’eau, velvet by graham & spencer, la HM, shelter social club. dpbm liberty fair drugstore, a love movement, tomboy style, keep it chic, jiggy loves, honestly wtf, busy being,keep feeling fascination,pure wow, miss moss,the radder.
