You might recognize this lovely face as she has modeled many, many Madder designs! Her name is Chloe and I wanted to take a quick moment to share a little Q & A with her.

What is your favorite thing about modeling knitwear?
I love that knitwear has such a particular warmth to it, I think it comes from the labor of love that goes into making each article.

winter woolies

The snow has melted! Is it wrong, but I actually miss it? Don't get me wrong, I love spring, LOVE spring. But, it's just so early, I'm suspicious that we'll get slammed with snow in April. We'll see...

Regardless of the lack of snow, a pile of worn knits has piled up, in need of a good cleaning. Lately, I haven been giving our winter woolies a wash using my Twig & Horn Wool Soap and have to say, I love it. The clean softness and the aroma (my scent is Lemongrass) is creating more comfy, cozy knits.


madder market

Opens March 4th & 5th

If you subscribe to my e-letter, then earlier this month you may have seen my announcement about my new adventure, Madder Market. However, I was a little optimistic in reporting that this would happen this weekend! I've decided to give myself a little more time to prepare. I am happy to say that I will be quietly opening my doors to you on March 4th and 5th. 

Shop hours will be Fridays 10am to 2pm and Saturdays from 10am-3pm.

How to find me? 
Come to Fort Andross, 14 Maine St, Brunswick, ME 04011.
Enter the building at the doors marked Mill Two and I'm on the second floor across from the Ladies sign. It can be confusing to find me if you do not enter through the Mill Two doorway. 

What is in my shop?
I imagine that answer will evolve over time, but I'm starting small with just a few yarns and goods that I love. Select yarns from Quince & Co., Yoth, Swans Island, and The Fibre Co. to start. Pattern books, Amirisu Magazine, goods from Fringe Association and more....

Come visit if you're in the area!
