I get to catch up with one of my favorite guests, Lexie Barnes.  Her new collection is just hitting stores and features 3 new fabrics and several new styles.  My life is pretty hectic but I often feel like a slug compared to what Lexie is juggling!  Besides her bag line, she has just opened Twist Pop-Up  Store in Thornes Marketplace in downtown Northampton.  The store will feature several of the artisans that show at Twist Fair in addition to other indie crafsters.

The next Twist Fair is coming up as well in just a couple of weeks.  It will be held on November 13 & 14 at the Northampton Center for the Arts.  The show is a blast and features some of the best indie craftsters.

If that weren’t enough, she’s also working on her next book, due out in Spring 2011! 

Pixie & I finish up the 3-Button Jacket KAL!

    Hi guys! What a thrill I got from hearing you mention my Kiyo pattern in this week’s podcast and here on your blog! It’s one of the bestselling Knitting Matters patterns, and one of my personal favorites too because it’s shape-flattering but still comfortable. I hope your customers will enjoy it too!
