One line of thread

Leslie Fuller’s new line of greeting cards carry on her tradition of using one line of uninterrupted thread in her artwork; she uses many different scraps of fabric and then connects them together in a pleasing way with a single line of uncut thread. While you may know her as a quilter and cloth artist, as well as for her beaded jewelry, her talents are wide-reaching. For instance, did you know that she is a makeup artist and has worked on many movies and television shows, including Orange Is The New Black?!Screen Shot 2016-07-01 at 4.08.35 PM

New work by CJ Lyttle

Woodworker CJ Lyttle, of Greenwich, NY, carves birds with amazing detail and accuracy, then displays them on branches and in nests. Each one exudes its own unique personality and charm. Showing that same eye for individualism, CJ has expanded his woodworking skills into creating kitchen utensils. Made of cherry wood and treated with walnut oil, each one has just a hint of whimsy. We bet you will smile every time you flip a pancake or toss a salad. DSCN9393
