Having dinner with friends? Here is a Thanksgiving post from our blog:

artizanmade.com/a-holiday-dinner-with-artistic-friends/

We have a clip of Steve Winwood singing by the fireplace in that post... I have read that many people are nervous about this Thanksgiving as so many families are divided over politics. Let's have some peace! Here is another tune by him.... Carry it with you in your heart today and aspire towards "Higher Love".

Wishing all of you a wonderful day of joy, laughter, good food, and lots of love!

www.etsy.com/listing/173261478/vintage-dress-yoke-afghanistan-textileAfghan Tribal Arts has some stunning vintage textiles on its Etsy shop, including this salvaged yoke from an Afghan dress. The traditional outfit includes embroidered cuffs for the dress and for the matching pant cuffs worn underneath. When the dress wears out, they re-use the handworked parts in a new garment.

  • Marcia Morse Mullins
      Marcia Mullins has been working with black ash for more than 30 years. She learned traditional indigenous techniques from Mike Sagataw, a Potawatomi elder with a deep reverence for honoring the ancestors’ knowledge. Following Mike’s teachings, Marcia honors each felled tree and believes the spirit of an ash tree remains within the forms woven from its wood. Each summer, she travels to a favorite cedar swamp near Lake Superior, where one tree is selected and processed into high-quality weaving splint. While Marcia crafts various functional vessels for commissions and fine art shows, her passion lies in creating free-form sculptures. Gnarly roots, twisted branches, English willow, and deer antlers provide structure for narrow ash weavers. She credits her love for sculptural weavings to Tom McColley, who challenged her to focus on form for a full year. If he felt a weaving was functional, it was destined for the wood stove. Nothing but firewood hit the coals. Marcia’s work has ... read more

  • Featured Region: Florida – Representation with Flair
    Florida Regional members enjoying their Pod meetings and activities When contemplating qualities Regional Representatives should possess, perhaps you envision people who are energetic, enthusiastic, dynamic, creative, with a boatload full of quirky, fun, and unusual ideas. If you chose these attributes, you have just described Florida’s Regional Representatives, Ellen Lindner and Karol Kusmaul. Interviewing Ellen and Karol was delightful and I was impressed by their diligence in unifying Florida. Their enthusiasm was apparent as they discussed continuity by building on past Regional leadership, continuing to nurture strong feelings of camaraderie and friendship. With their own style, they are fulfilling the promise of this evolving Region. PODs: A conceptFormer Representatives Nancy Billings and Jayne Gaskins felt a system was necessary for Florida’s membership to create connections through networking and friendship. To meet this need, in 2012 Nancy and Jayne developed the much-acclaimed POD system (also known now as Local Connections). After painstakingly plotting each member on a map, they drew ... read more
