This Friday — Event!

Don’t miss the opening reception for our new show,
The Milkweed Project and Other Flawless Fibers!

This exciting fiber and textile exhibition opens this Friday, January 14.


The Milkweed Project (above) is a collaborative artwork made up of approximately 150 objects created by several hundred artists and crafters from 30 states and 10 countries. It is a main highlight of the show. Participants from the U.S. and around the world have contributed works that are knitted, felted, crocheted and woven. They became a part of one artwork that is intended to capture the essence of a milkweed pod; its soft, ethereal beauty and its importance  to the natural world. The artwork was  conceived of and organized by Shan Bryan-Hansen. To learn more about the project, visit http://sticksandstitches.squarespace.com.


Other nationally-recognized textile artists, including Alison Gates (Above image: Neither Created nor Destroyed), Jennifer Hunold, and Mindy Sue Wittock, contribute non-traditional textile and fiber pieces that make this exhibition one not to be missed. Sculpture, basketry, quilting, embroidery, weaving, sewing, crocheting, felting, and knitting will be represented.

Join us for the opening reception on Friday, January 14, 5:00 – 8:00 pm. The event is free and open to the public and refreshments will be served. The exhibition runs through February 28.

This event also coincides with the next Algoma Art Wave, a gallery/studio tour that takes place every 2nd Friday evening of each month.

New Work by Lauren Beacham – Amazingness!

You may remember Lauren Beacham from when we had her Polaroid necklaces and earrings in the 50/50/50 show last year. She has gone even further with the Polaroid concept and made these beautiful and interesting ceramic tile clocks, nightlights, and lamps.

These are some of my favorites:

Come in and take a look! Makes a great last-minute holiday gift!

NEW: Amazing Soy Candles

I am totally in love with the new candles we got in — All You Need Is Candles is a soy candle line by Katie Porterfield. They smell soooo amazing, you just have to come in to smell them. For example, she has created an “Apple Barn” scent that actually smells like an apple BARN. Not just a simple apple scent, no. It actually smells like you just walked into an old apple orchard barn — it’s amazing.

Another great aspect about Katie’s candles is that they are made from 100% soy wax from soy that is grown by American Farmers. She also supports WI business by purchasing her supplies through a family-run business in Northern WI.

Right now we have many fall scents available in different sizes. We also have tarts that can be melted in any type of warmer and reused until they stop smelling. Winter scents will be coming in soon. These make a great holiday gift!

You can also find All You Need Is Candles on Facebook here.

Thanks for buying local and buying handmade!
