For October we will be fundraising for Project Bread. Project Bread envisions a Massachusetts where hunger is permanently solved.

Samples Worth Writing About: Kelly Anorak

Part 3 of our sample "collection" of Closet Core Patterns. This is the Kelly Anorak (view A - that's the view with a hood and cinched waist!). We made a Size 14 without adjustments. The dress form is a size 16 with the following measurements:Bust = 41 1/4"Waist = 32"Hips = 42 1/4" For the main fabric we used 3 yards of Dry Oilskin by Merchant and Mills and we lined it in 1 3/4 yards of Dobby Viscose by Atelier Brunette.

Meet Charles - Craft Associate

In the summer of 2020 we posted that we were looking for some part-time help and were thrilled when Charles applied.

I started crocheting about 10 years ago, and what keeps me interested in crochet is how easily you can influence the structure through alternating different types of stitches. Crochet is still my favorite craft, whether...

September 2021 We Care Wednesday

The last few weeks of August have been difficult to navigate: surges in COVID cases across the country, weather events that have taken precious lives and left people without homes, food, and power, a Supreme Court that is primed to destroy women's rights, and the end of a 20 year war that brings with it a refugee crisis (and so much more). We know we can't do it all. And we fear we will never do enough. For September we'll be fundraising for the Combined Jewish Philanthropies of Greater Boston's Fund for Afghan Immigrants and Refugees. With your generosity, the...

Meet Harriette - Craft Associate

When we started to prepare for some version of being "open" in 2021 we needed to find some fiber help. Harriette joined the team in February, learning how things worked in the "before times" as well as how things were operating in the "uncertain times". For those of you that haven't had the pleasure of meeting Harriette in-person, we're excited to introduce you to her here! When did you start making things?My mom is a teacher and one of the benefits as a very bookish child was taking home leftover books from the book fair. The summer before high school...
