don’t fret. i’m not moving there. been there, done that! i am happily staying put in philadelphia. but soon, as in tomorrow, i will be setting up shop at renegade craft fair in brooklyn. i’m so excited! i have been working on plenty of new stuff and even a new booth backdrop which i think is going to be really cool. what wasn’t cool about the backdrop however, was making it.
there i was yesterday, in my 3rd floor studio, no air conditioning and just a tiny little fan, in my underwear and a tank top (after you have read this, please erase that visual from your minds eye) sewing together 10 yards worth of strips of fabric. 100 degrees and a pile of fabric on my lap does not a happy jay make.
if you are a new yorker or a brooklynite or just love unique crafted goods and are in the tri state area, stop by and say hi! i will be located at BOOTH #78. heads up! the forecast is calling for rain…so come prepared with umbrellas and rain boots and a wallet overflowing with cash or credit cards. i am also accepting wooden nikels.
