Detroit Urban Craft Fair Begins Tomorrow!

Shop handmade from home this year. 🛍 There are SO many great makers showing up for the virtual show this year. I don’t know about you, but I’m super excited to get some holiday shopping done and still be able to support local makers.

Handmade Detroit had to get creative this year for DUCF and they killed it. Check out the web site and all the lovely makers selling their swag now through Dec. 6. Plus, visit the DUCF instagram for special events on Fridays and instagram takeovers by all the vendors.

Our instagram takeover over is Sunday, December 6, 9am – 2pm.

First Show of the Year!

Just wrapped up two hot and sticky days at Detroit Maker Faire!

Reusable water balloons were a big, big, BIG success. Yay! I loved watching people test out the water balloons (of course, I had a bowl full of water with balloons in it to try out. I expected all the kids to throw them at each other…. but actually, adults tended to throw them at each other more than the kids. 🤣

Laser cut all the things!!!

Weeee! I am so excited!!!! I FINALLY had the chance to try my hand at laser cutting and engraving. This week, I took my fiancé on a date night to Factory Two, the maker space in Flint and it was the best date night idea I’ve had in a long time.

Before heading to the maker space, we stopped for tacos – our go to meal for date nights. Mmm tacos. After our bellies were full of deliciousness, we headed over to Factory Two. There we learned how to use inkscape (the program we would use to draw our projects), saw a few of our friends, learned how to run the laser cutting/engraving machine AND got a tour of the wood shop in the maker space.

The beautifully designed keychain above is what I made. I can’t wait to perfect my art and make a million more of them to hand out to people at market. 😉

People may think that Flint is a struggling community without a lot of resources – and they would be right. But we are also a struggling community with a STRONG arts/maker community. I’m so happy to be a part of that community and I can’t wait to see what everyone does next.

Ready. Set. Knit.

Happy New Year!

I’m excited for a brand new year of creation! PYC has a new line up of creature cowls for you this year. Don’t worry – you’ll still be able to order the Cinna Fox that started it all. We’re also trying out a few new fiber arts. Be sure to check the blog for sneak peeks of what’s next.

Knitting may move a little slowly for me at the beginning of this year. Just two days after Christmas, I bought a new house.

The new place is a spacious homestead with lots of potential. It’s quirky and I love it. Although, it’s quite the fixer upper. It is in need of lots of renovations and updating. So I’ll be squeezing my knitting in between knocking down walls, painting and putting in new kitchen cabinets.

Wish me luck! ❤
