Announcing a New Blog

Today I am announcing my new blog, Mary Lachman Designs. Here is the link:

I believe the new title better reflects the range of my artwork.

If you have followed me for more than a month, you know that I create quilts, mixed media art,  and fingerless gloves. I also spin, felt wool,  and design my own patterns.  Hence, the old blog title seemed too restrictive.

I released my first post on the new blog today. Please let me know your thoughts. I intend to keep this blog going for a short time, longer if readers wish me to!

Fingerless Gloves at the Flanders Nature Center Holiday Artisans Show, Woodbury CT

These next two weekends will be the final days to see and buy a piece of handmade art by a Connecticut artist at the Flanders Nature Center Holiday Exhibit.

I will be adding several different styles of handknit fingerless gloves to the exhibit. These are all my own design. I will also have several new pieces of quilted wall art available. Other artists have handpainted ornaments, handwoven scarves, and handspun alpaca yarn for sale.  There is truly something unique for everyone on you love.  A portion of all sales go to benefit programs at the Nature Center where children and adults learn about the environment.

Spinning and Knitting Demonstration at Flanders Nature Center

Today I will be at the Flanders Nature Center in Woodbury, CT demonstrating the transformation of wool roving into yarn with a spinning wheel during the Holiday Artisan's Show and Sale.

Woodbury is a wonderful destination with lots to see and do including hiking trails at the Nature Center, Woodbury Pewters, and many antique shops.

Stop by and see me if you have a chance. I will be there from 12 noon - 2 p.m.
