It’s finally FALL! My favorite season! I love that the weather starts to get a little cooler but it’s really all about Halloween! I have a closet full of costumes, mostly handmade…. we’ve been Angry birds, a roller coaster, mimes…not sure what it will be this year….as my hubby is in a cast due to rupturing his Achilles…maybe Nurse Ratchet?!?!
I’ve been a bit busy…..I attended the monthly zoom meeting of the East Pittsburgh Knitting Group. What a great group! I talked about the future of the Pittsburgh Creative Arts Festival, saw what everyone is working on, and laughed a lot. It was great meeting everyone and spending time chatting. I welcome the opportunity to meet with other guilds! Send me an email at email@example.com to schedule time.
I also made a day trip to Pittsburgh for some festival business and visited two awesome places. First stop was Songbird Artistry, were I spent time with Debbie while she was creating with polymer clay. We chatted about impacts of the pandemic and ways to socially interact while keeping our distance…..possible a collaboration in the future! Check out her website at www.songbirdartistry.com or stop in her shop.
Next stop was Contemporary Crafts, what an amazing space! The current exhibit is by artist Caledonia Curry (aka Swoon). If you are the area, you need to check it out….it was awesome! Part of the space includes great spaces for opportunities to create…check out upcoming workshops on their website www.contemporarycraft.org. I’m looking to partner with Kate and Allison on future endeavors…stay tuned
Below are pictures of both spaces I visited, plus us as Angry Birds.
I had hoped to see some fall colors along the way but everything was still pretty green….hopefully on my next trip that will be different!
I would love to meet others on my next trip to Pittsburgh….drop me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
