It's the night before our Handmade Holiday Show and Party! We're busy making little thank you gifts and hauling sewing machines into the backroom. It's a haven of making here and we can't wait until tomorrow! So thrilled to welcome back Stacie who was so much fun at our First Ever Fiber Trunk Show (I stare at my skein of her yarn each morning imagining all that it will become). Did you know Stacie was a bookbinder, too? Well, now you do!
What's your name, what's your business name and where are you based?
My name is Stacie, I sell stuff as njstacie•made and I'm in Arlington, MA.
What's your handcraft? And how long have you been practicing it?
I do an assortment of handcrafts, mostly bookbinding and handspun yarn. I've been making books for about 14 years or so, and I've been making yarn for about 5 years. <PREVIEWEND>
What items will you be bringing to the Handmade Holiday Show? Why do you think your (insert noun here) are perfect for the crafty-genius to give or receive?
I'll be bringing some handbound journals, some mini-haiku-books, some paper cutouts, and some handspun yarn! I think any of the items I'll have will be delightful treats for crafters to receive and use in the new year, or to give as encouragement to future crafters!
What are you making/giving to your friends and family this holiday?
I'm doing a lot of sewing for people this year - some quilts and bags. I find it to be one of the faster crafts. I'm also hoping to complete some family albums for people in time for the holidays, but I don't know if that will happen.
Anything new in 2012? What can folks expect to find at your (insert studio/website/etsy shop) in the new year?
I've got some big book plans for the new year, and I'm going to try to keep my shop more consistently stocked with handspun yarn!
