So it’s Stitch & Bitch Sunday here at happy delusions where if you don’t know already, you are invited to come down and join in our little stitch fest. And as always, I feel it only right to bring attention to some amazing stitchers out in the world. Today I’d like to let everyone know about Mandy Greer. I was first intro’ed to this lady while watching handmade nation, which if you haven’t already, go watch this documentary by Faythe Levine. It’s what got me do to my sweet PBR latchhook, that I’ve had such recent success on. If you’re in the Seattle area get your booty down to Roq La Rue before May 7th and see her rad chandeliers at the “Lust Life 2” Group Invitational, and support our local galleries and artist in them. Mandy is one of the women who can take her vision and really put it into a piece that will leave your eyes to hours of wonder and enjoyment. So much going on, so much detail, so much fun, and so much work. Way to go girl. I literally have dreams of her work in my shop windows. I mean hey, a girls gotta dream. 🙂
I Just found this RAD needle holder on Crafty Crafty. It is an original design by knitter and designer Rosemary Haddon. She calls it her very prickly hedgehog. This super out does my lame O twirly needle holder. I can’t find too much info. as far as a pattern or more links to Rosemary’s work, but if you want to know more about her and what she’s doing, keep an eye out for knitting in fashion as she attended the Winchester School of Art, and from the articles and photos I’ve been seeing, she did pretty well. Keep it up Rosemary!
Oh, and Stitch & Bitch starts today (as every Sunday) at 1pm. See you shiz-knitter!
Finally a place for us in Renton to come together and bitch with some hip peeps like yourself. Weather it’s Knitting, Crocheting, Needlepoint, Crewel, Latch-hook or just good ol’ fashion Bitchin, you are welcome to come join us. Every Sunday 1-5pm @ happy delusions in the heart of DTR. This Sunday, March 14th will mark the first one, and we will continue on from there. There will be some people here to help you learn if that’s what you need. We will also have some yarn, needles, and hooks to help get you started until you can get your own. It’s gonna be the hottest thing to hit Renton!
