A shot from what is hanging around my studio table. Love this palette so much.
Making No. 2 / FAUNA, is now available to pre-order on the Making site! This issue will ship early to mid-November. (If you've already subscribed—you're all set!)
I hope you love this issue as much as I do!
It is official. 2016 has been, for me, the Year of Change. In January, I moved my working space from our home to a large studio in a local mill building. In March, I opened a small Market in the front of the studio. In May, I launched a magazine (Making). In July, my family moved a couple towns over to a new house. Now, in the spirit of all this change, I have decided to close my studio shop. This may seem sudden but ever since I released the magazine, the Market has not gotten the energy it deserves and needs. So, while not only is this year about change, it is also about making good choices that feel right for my family and my work.
Though the shop doors are now closed, please come visit me at the Squam Art Fair on September 17th! I will be selling off some goods at my table there. And, I am tinkering with the idea of having a party at my studio later this year to celebrate the first two issues of Making.
I am excited to be able to fully focus on Making No. 2 / FAUNA! I am in the thick of working on this next issue and am loving all the projects that are rolling in. I truly want this magazine to be the best it can be and having more time will help me get it there. Also, I have plans to grow a small online Making Market with some kits and other goodies! Stay tuned...
Thank you to everyone who has visited Madder Market this year! I am grateful for your kindness and support.
I am so pleased to announce the release of Simple Pleasures Linen, an ebook of five simple staple garments for spring and summer.
Last year, I wore my Lena Tee all the time. I started dreaming of other patterns I would like to design using Sparrow and Kestrel because wearing linen is so amazing! I love the way it drapes and the way it wears.
Now that these beauties are photographed, I can begin to wear them! Summer just got a little sweeter for me...and I imagine Lena will enjoy having some linen sisters in the mix.
Happy Mother's Day to all you mamas out there!
Making is here! I've been so busy with getting the issue to the printer that I haven't even had time to announce Making's release here!

Friend, so many of you have helped MAINE Knits! We're almost there...
One last push will get us to our goal, making it possible to publish this book of knitting designs by Carrie Bostick Hoge, Alicia Plummer, Bristol Ivy, Cecily Glowik Mcdonald, Mary Jane Mucklestone, Elizabeth Smith, Leah B. Thibault, Kristen TenDyke, Leila Raabe and myself. With a foreword written by Pam Allen of Quince & Co.
If you feel like you can help spread the word, that would be great!
Have a great weekend,
