What December Will Bring

bath salts by jennifer mackey

Patty Demant, knitter, stitcher, quilter, teacher, felter... and I, textile studio artist, thought it would be good fun to celebrate the holidays with an open studio and craft sale. This will be a relaxed weekend of meeting with friends, drinking eggnogs, eating holiday cookies and listening to some piano tunes... and well enjoying the holiday season in Humboldt County.

We are organizing small gift items to sale, housewares in felt, linens for table and home, baths salts for really getting in the winter groove, and a variety of Chia Jen Studio products.
Price range will be mostly low with a few high priced items if you feel inclined to bring home a painting or silk scarf.

I will keep you posted as items get selected. For now just mark your calendars for December 12th and 13th at the Chia Jen Studio from 11 am to 4 pm.

publishing earth series book

i am excited about this project. baby steps that have taken a long time coming.

i began some of the monoprints just after 9/11 and later with our great concern for the future of this lovely planet, wove some of the ideas and images together.

but underneath all of our 'stories', whether political or environmental, is the personal history that effects how we interpret everything that goes on around us.

this is one interpretation. with any luck there will be more in the future.

i look forward to your feedback.
