Tomorrow and Saturday I'll be at Craftmart, a nicely curated show here in Hamilton, Ontario that co-oincides with Artcrawl. In case you aren't familiar with Hamilton and the bi monthly Artcrawl, James St N is closed to motorized traffic and is transformed into a street fair full of food trucks, installations and pop-up shops. Its kind of fantastic. Craftmart is at The Inc at the intersection of James and Cannon St's and it features vendors such as Krystal Speck, Heidi Van Veen, Nightjar Books, Lee Meszaros and others. I'm pretty excited about the show and the calibre of work shown by my co-vendors.
In other news, I've managed to get hold of some more vintage Estate magazines. I'll be blogging about them shortly as well as posting more double bed pattern diagrams. As well, I can't say its for sure but there may be some more vintage machines in the near future, these are super fine gauge circular knitting
machines that make permutations of tubes. They are
meant for making socks but its far more fun to re-
appropriate such machines. Here's a great example of
machine re-appropriation, although I should say the
machines I'm interested in are not this big or modern.
Fall so far has been fantastic, the colours, the
weather and the cold weather food is something I
really look forward to. I hope you are enjoying this
