I somehow managed to sign myself up for two bazaars in one weekend... The Raven Art Show is at the Morris Thompson Center Friday, Nov. 4 from 5-8 pm. Then the UAF Women's bazaar is 10-4 Saturday at Pioneer Park. On Friday it will be all bird themed items, and then Saturday will be a wider variety. I have several new things this year that I'm excited about!
First, I've added cards that are prints of some of my quilts, mostly raven so far, but there will be lots more coming! Then, I've also been really having fun with paper crafting lately (I needed a new hobby, ha!), so I have some handmade paper cards as well. I even hand carved a couple of raven rubber stamps for those. The cranes pictured below are from a stamp by local artist Maggie Hallam. On Saturday I will have a wider range of paper cards, and they will be a fundraiser for the Helping Hands Alaska ministry! 100% of proceeds from those cards will go to them.
Then, I also have prints this year! Again, mostly raven/bird themed, but I will be adding lots more there hopefully soon also. This is just a few, there are 25 designs, and two different sizes of most of them. I'm calling them posters, because this batch is not archival prints, but still good quality. Hopefully the next batch WILL be archival, and the price will be a little higher also, these are going to be very reasonable, $8-12.
The printed cards will be on the website soon after the bazaars, and hopefully the archival prints will come soon too.
I will also have my usual quilted greeting cards, kits and patterns, and a few finished quilts. I hope to see those of you who are local this weekend, it will be fun to connect with people in person again!

I am a homeschooling mom of three fun kids, who are now old enough that I have a little time to pursue my passion for sewing! After several years of making quilted cards and art quilts, I'm now designing kits and patterns. Some of my designs have been in Keepsake Quilting and Art Quilting Studios magazine! I teach classes online, and am starting to do more traveling and teaching. I also have many tutorials, including some on YouTube. I am blessed to live in Alaska where I am surrounded by the inspiration provided by the beauty of God's creation!
Free card pattern and also an e-book, and a quilt planning checklist!

I am also an independent distributor for Plexus supplements, since I credit them with enabling me to be healthy enough to do all these fun things! They target blood sugar and gut health, which are at the root of so many modern health issues. E-mail me for more info, or check out my website! I am as passionate about getting people healthy as I am about getting people creating :-)
