Urban Craft Uprising

Posted by Susan Liane, The Smuggler's Daughter on 12/7/2013 to Commentary
Trying to find something a bit different and don't have time to make all of your gifts this year? The only reasonable answer is to shop at craft shows. If you like original, hand-made gifts, and if you like shopping local, try out your local craft show before resorting to the mall or to a superstore. In Seattle, we have the Urban Craft Uprising - a large indie craft show with some great sewn items, and lots of other things like pottery, jewelry and the like. But I've got to tell you about the sewn products...

Sewing in Southern Oregon

Posted by Susan Liane, The Smuggler's Daughter on 12/2/2013 to Commentary
Southern Oregon is a lovely place with many nice things to do and see. Ashland is home to Southern Oregon University and the Oregon Shakespeare Festival. Medford is a bit larger town that is north of Ashland and has a few more chain stores and businesses that I'm accustomed to having around. Jacksonville is a tiny historic town that is west of Medford and home to a wonderful music festival - the Britt Festival. Between Ashland and Medford are two little towns, Talent and Phoenix. Talent is my personal favorite for its funky charm. Oregon's wine industry is thriving in this area and although I don't drink, I do think the vineyards make for nice scenery.

This place oozes good sewing vibes.
