The evening will include a trunk show featuring member Bonnie MacAllister’s works, and Handmade Philly members are invited to lead and participate in fiber demos including weaving and spinning. The public is invited to bring their current fiber projects (crochet, knit, woven, sewn squares of about 2 feet wide) that they are willing to contribute to decorate Ardmore and leave their creative mark in fiber. The event will culminate in live “yarn bombing.” All ages and skill levels are encouraged.

Cupcakes + Embroidery + West Elm + Etsy + Handmade Philly = Tons of Crafty Goodness!!

If you were unable to make it out on Friday, or if that event just left you yearning for more, fear not! We are having another meet up this afternoon, from 4-6 pm!

Can’t wait to meet you there!
March’s meet up at The Clay Studio in Olde City was fabulous. First, we learned how to alter ceramics using decals and porcelain paint, then, we took a tour of the gallery and the studios. Many thanks to our member, Meg Perine for setting up the event, and to the Clay Studio’s curator, Garth Johnson, for leading the demo and the tour! And to the artists of The Clay Studio, for being so welcoming as we walked around and toured the space.
We took a ton of photos. So many, in fact, that we will be posting them in two separate posts.

Well, it’s been one doozy of a Winter. What’s this, snowstorm #16? When will it be Spring??? Though it’s tempting to hunker down and hibernate, it’s important to stay active and social during these long winter months. So that’s just what we’ve been doing. Here are some pics from last month’s Handmade Philly meet up held at Cerulean Arts on Ridge Avenue, right near the Divine Lorraine. Next meet up is this Sunday, so dust off those cobwebs and come on out! It’s time to mix and mingle!!
