Next week I’ll be joining Suann Song, founder of Appointed Co., for a panel discussion about life as a creative business owner. I’m looking forward to connecting with other makers and entrepreneurs — the best part of my job is building community so that we can all see our endeavors thrive. If you’re a creative living in San Diego, don’t miss this engaging event! RSVP and secure your (free!) tickets on Eventbrite.
It’s been a busy summer getting the new studio and shop set up, and I’m looking forward to opening up the studio for workshops again this month. Check out our list of upcoming creative classes in San Diego, and sign up to join me in the studio to learn about block printing.
This Saturday, December 9th, visit Cotton & Flax at Makers Arcade, and support San Diego’s creative community while you finish your holiday shopping! You’ll find 100 California-based artisans sharing their handmade work, and enjoy local brews and delicious treats while you shop.
This is my first time exhibiting at this indie show, and I’m looking forward to connecting with the local creative scene in my new city. If you’re in San Diego, stop by and say hello!

I’m excited to have Cotton & Flax goods exhibited in San Francisco this weekend at West Coast Craft! This two day art and design fair is one of my favorite events of the year, and it’s open to the public. I’d definitely plan to start holiday shopping early; there will be over 250 artists and makers selling their work at the show. I won’t be able to attend in person this time, but my dear friend Bianca from Chaparral Studio is going to be running our booth with her own beautiful flair.
If you live in the SF Bay area, stop by Fort Mason this weekend and say hello!
I’m looking forward to returning to San Francisco this month for West Coast Craft, my favorite art and design show on the west coast! This event brings together up-and-coming designers from all over the west coast, and highlights some truly amazing craftspeople. I’m honored to have been invited to participate for a fifth time!
I’ll be bringing fabric yardage from my new Arroyo collection, as well as a selection of new one-of-a-kind pieces made with Arroyo! Think patchwork pillows, quilts, and some framed quilt blocks that highlight the beauty of quilting with linen.
If you live in the Bay area, stop by West Coast Craft at Fort Mason Center on June 10-11 to see check out my work in person, and see the incredible work of 200+ west coast designers.
I have two new pillow designs debuting this week at ICFF in New York, as part of an exhibition called Make Use, which was co-curated by JOIN Design and Rejuvenation. This exhibition is part of NYCxDesign, a multi-week celebration of global design that takes place yearly in New York.
Make Use will debut a new collection of objects for the home from 14 West Coast-based studios. Our design philosophy for this collection was rooted in simple, natural materials, and designs that celebrate the maker’s hand, and honor the everyday. My new designs, a pair of wool felt pillows, sewn in a patchwork design from scraps of felt that I had saved from other projects, combines my design values of high-quality materials and a no-waste studio environment.
I’m delighted to be featured in an exhibition that celebrates straightforward design and the beauty in utility associated with West Coast Craftsmanship. If you’re in New York for ICFF, stop by booth #233 and check out my new work!
