Eight homes are hosting the work of nine artists on the front yard, porch, or facade. Participating […]

Dressmaking part 2

Earlier this year I took a dressmaking class at the lovely Evanston Stitchworks. Then when my mom came to visit, instead of heading to the Mall we picked out my new future wardrobe based on the gorgeous fabrics owner Amalia curates at Stitchworks. It was good to get a second opinion on some of the […]

All […]
