WiReD Pop Up Shop/NOHO

Yesterday afternoon I was taking a nap on the couch, and just happened to check foursquare on my iphone. Glad I did. I had completely forgotten about the WiRed Pop Up store happening a few blocks away. Open till December 26th, Broadway at 4th st.
(remember Tower Records?)





Lot's of geeky stuff for holiday shopping.
It's fun to see what is out there, and thought maybe some woodworker friends would like this keyboard.


I liked this eyepad case, which looked like it would accomodate plug ins better than the one I have.


I might get Toshiki this nap pod chair for Christmas, except he would never get out of it!


One on line watch shop let you try on the watches to see how you look in them, but of course people were goofing around.


These wall mount ipad cases would be good for the kitchen. The orange one is perfect for mineI


Santa, are you listening? I want this.
How cool this would look parked next to the Airstream out in Montauk, and perfect
for going into town for groceries!

Kina Crow

If you haven't seen the work of Kina Crow, you should come to the Washington Craft Show this weekend. At the convention center near Mt Vernon Place.

And by the way, our collection of Toshiki and Maryszka shearling coats are in booth 416

Cheers, Philadelphia Museum of Art!

It's 2 am and I can't sleep.
We just returned home from the Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show, where for
4 days and one night at the preview event, we exhibited our designs in shearling.

The Women's Committee of the museum for which this is a major fundraiser, once again
did an incredible job of producing the most elegant show of fine craft in the country.
Toshiki and I have been working, living, laughing together for almost 30 years, and I just wanted to say great job done to each other and to the rest of the
great talent we were honored to be in the company of.

Now on to Washington!

Good morning Philadelphia!

It is a beautiful day! Come to the convention center today (10-6) or tomorrow (10-5) to see and meet the best talent in America and the guest German artists participating in the show. We are showing our shearling coats in booth 715. Still a few slots left for special orders for delivery before the holidays but they are going fast.
See you there!

The Philadelphia Craft Show

The opening party, as usual, was fabulous. And sales were good!
Please visit us in booth 715 to place an order for the shearling coat of your dreams,
Custom sizing and trims, limited edition work done in our Long Island studio.

Show is open to the public today thru Sunday at the Pennsylvania Convention Center.

Below is the best bartender at the show, Juwan, that I have gotten to know over the years when I photograph the incredible floral display behind him

The Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show

I was cleaning the office last night and came across this, which I really can't remember what it was, but guessing our daughter and I were goofing around making a birthday card for Toshiki. Created a number of years ago (his 40th!), and I guess we were wait listed for the show that year. Sonia is modeling her "Healthy Angels" motorcycle jacket he had made for her.

Well this year, and many years, we are lucky enough to be juried into the show, which is next week! I hope you can come to this fabulous show, we will be showing our collection of shearling coats in booth 715!

PMA Craft, for info.
