New website for a fabulous artist!

A beautiful new website has just been created by the talented Kate Moran! Her work in micro-macrame is absolutely outstanding, but she is also an accomplished hat designer, and clothing designer. Look for more items to be posted about that as she adds them to her shop!
  To have a look at some of her work, please visit bykatemoran.com, to see the scope of great items she has posted in her Etsy shop. Still a little time to get that unique Christmas gift for someone special!
 Also, visit her Facebook page facebook.com/bykatemoran to have a chance to win the lovely leaf pendant shown above. Be sure to read her 'About' page on the website page as well to learn more about this artist and her process. She has a very famous client, as well....Jason Mraz has purchased three of her hats in the past, and has also shared her work on his Instagram page. It is great to hear about such a talented recording artist supporting the arts this way, and promoting handmade!
  Good luck to those of you who enter the contest!

Back at it!


"Nun of a Kind" is preparing for the upcoming show in Toronto, "The One of a Kind Show and Sale", being held this year from November 29-Dec.8th. A great place to shop for handmade for those special holiday gifts for your family, or yourself! It is a show featuring 800 vendors from across Canada, and is a "feast for the eyes"! This will be my fifth time exhibiting there (I do half of the show, from Nov. 29-Dec.2nd this year) and will be my last show there for the time being. Taking a break from it, but love it and always plan to go as a customer!!
To prepare for such a long "run" of days at a show, the booth has to be "full", meaning months of work preparing. Currently in the collection are over 100 "sisters", as well as a new line of "brothers". Add a touch of Christmas to the items, with a sampling of Santas, angels and snowfolk, plus a variety of ornaments, it means steady time at the machine and sculpting accents for the "sisterhood". Looking forward to meeting former customers and collectors, and visiting with fellow artisans during the time spent there this year!
