Each year I try to do a few craft shows. They are a lot of work and effort, so I don’t usually get the chance to fit in more than a few, but I really enjoy them. It is fun to see people interact with my products, socialize in a festive atmosphere and sell a good chunk of product all at once. I also value the chance to practice learning new skills as I make the products to sell, rather than just using the skills I already have to design.
One of my favorite parts of a craft fair is coming up with craft show display ideas. Continue reading Craft Show Display Ideas

The Quadruple Treble Crochet, used with alternating rows of half double crochet, creates a unique and cozy crochet cowl that looks beautiful with any style. It can be used as an accent piece with a simple t-shirt, but is elegant enough to be worn when dressing up. A very versatile piece to add to your collection!

Congratulations to the lucky winner: Debbie R.! Thank you to everyone who participated!
It’s been a few months since my last giveaway, so I felt like it was about time to do another! This time around I am giving away 3 skeins of Loops & Threads Velveteen yarn. The extra special thing about this yarn is that it is no longer in production. I was so sad to hear last year that they wouldn’t be making it anymore, as it has such a unique texture and beautiful shimmer. It has a bit of the elasticity of a t-shirt or Bernat Maker yarn, but with a delicate satin-like fabric edging that gives it an elegant sheen. It feels very fancy! Continue reading Yarn Giveaway: Win 3 Skeins of Yarn

Even though it’s September, it hasn’t really started to feel like fall yet here in Northern California! We’ve had a few cooler days this last week, but today as I write this post we are still in the 90s! I am SO ready for some cooler breezes, falling leaves and pumpkin everything!!
So, I’m happy to at least be able to release a crochet beanie pattern this week because nothing says fall like a cozy beanie! Continue reading Crochet Beanie Pattern // The Sand Drift Beanie
