Recent and future shows

Well we are back from two weeks on the road, doing two of the most important shows of the year.
Both were slightly down due to the economy, but all in all we got a lot of orders for shearlings, thanks to our loyal customers who came thru, and some new ones as well. Thank you all, and we will be busy making your coats into the new year.
I always comment on the beautiful flower arrangements at the Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show, and here is Juwan again at the bar, (see Nov. '07 post for The Philadelphia Craft Show) in front of the beautiful flowers.

Unbelievably I leave again tomorrow for the Paradise City Show in Marlboro, Ma. See you there!

Washington and Philadelphia

We are putting the final touches on our newest work and packing the car to go to two great shows. The first, The Washington Craft Show, (Nov. 7-9) is our ONLY show in the D.C. area until next year at this time, so don't miss it! 
Susan Boyd will be on hand to do a talk at 3 pm on saturday, entitled 
"Five Rules for Reviving What's in Your Closet with Artful Accessories"
Wondering how to bring personal style to a basic black suit or off-the-rack dress? Come learn the five rules for updating your fashion allure with craft art accessories, as fashion consultant Susan Boyd demonstrates and answers your style questions.

The following week is The Philadelphia Craft Show, (Nov. 13-16).
Both of these shows exhibit  absolutely the best craft/artist/designers, and are considered the 2 best shows in the country featuring living national treasures (us!), and give us a chance to make a living creating work with our hands.
We have just gotten in some beautiful skins in vibrant blue, purple and red from Spain, and will be showing shearling coats in these, as well as a palette of browns and black, both off the rack and to order in special sizes. You can also chose your trim colors and designs and be a part of the creative process.  Our limited edition and one of a kind pieces are made in our studio on 
Long Island. Below is a blue merino shearling one of a kind coat, trimmed with brightly colored lambskin.
