moving to wordpress

Hi everyone - just a quick note to let you know I have moved over to wordpress and am continuing my blog over there.  I just unveiled my knit wire line 'breathless' during my first wholesale trade show at The Buyers Market of American Craft - what a wonderful show filled with amazing artists - I was so excited to be a part of it and experience a trade show first hand!

Now that the show is over, I am working on a new design for my site/blog with the help of a wonderful designer (you'll meet her soon!) and hope to have the unveiling in the next month.  Feel free to pop on over now and follow me at my new home - oblinaknit - I would love to know what you think of the change.

I currently have one of the wordpress freebie themes and am working with a designer to create my own blog theme with additional pages for wholesale, etc...hopefully by the end of September it will be complete - yay!

First Show of the Season - Road trip to Philly!

I will be participating in a fantastic market in Philadelphia on April 17th - The Philadelphia Designer's Market - I am excited to get out of town for a mini-trip after this weather we have had in the DC area.  A ton of new fabrics have arrived from my suppliers so expect to see some new totes and other accessories for spring - See you there!

bejeweled by oblinaknit

I have finally opened a jewelry shop to showcase my creations - whew!  Welcome to bejeweled by oblinaknit - I am in love with my new banner, cards, and logos from artinsomnia on etsy - she was fantastic to work with and I highly recommend her for your graphics projects.

The new shop is a bit empty while I prep for my upcoming show in Cleveland, but I am hoping to pop a new piece in from time to time so you all have something sparkly to peruse and enjoy!

See you soon!

Have You Heard of the Lunch Bunch?

I love facebook - I use it for my business but also to stay in touch with friends. I love discovering new shops as well as new artists and recently found Ana Bagayan. Her art has quickly become one of my favorites.

Ana is also one of the duo who make up the Lunch Bunch
- they pack and deliver lunch once a week to the homeless in Los Angeles, California. And, when there are funds left over, the Lunch Bunch reinvests it in the form of clothing and other supplies that the homeless community can use. I was more than impressed and decided to donate what I could for their lunches that week and future weeks.

I love to keep up with their blog and read about their progress - I hope you will too - its a great way to stay in touch with new friends!

I'm Baaaaack!

Well its been another long break since my last post and I am still dealing with the parental units and their health issues but things are getting better - day by day - hopefully things are settling down and I can focus on these upcoming shows:

I will be at The Reston Market every Saturday through October 31st form 8AM - 2PM so come on out for a great day at Lake Anne - there is a farmer's market adjacent to the craft market so it makes for a fun day!

My big holiday show this year is The Cleveland Bazaar Bizarre - December 12 & 13th so I am looking froward to that road trip as its partially the only thing even close to a vacation for me this year - so we are hitting the Rock-n-Roll museum as well on this trip - woohoo!

I am working on some new designs and can't wait to share them with everyone!
