Starting Last October

It all started to come together one October afternoon last year (2014), when I went to hang at the Sarafina Art House for their Grand Opening. I had taken a couple of needle felting classes with Sara, artist and owner of Sarafina Fiber Art, and was completely hooked.

If you have ever wanted to do needle felting, watch some of her needle felting videos and get some of her supplies, and you’ll be hooked too!Sarafina Art House Grand Opening

Not too long after the grand opening, I was asked if I would be interested in joining the Sarafina Art House staff to help fill orders, and help with keeping everything stocked around the shop.

I look back now and realize how badly I needed to be working around people outside of my home studio.

I had NO idea what I was getting into, but I had a gut feeling if these people were just as fun as they were at the grand opening, and had that kind of energy and humor that you see in Sara’s videos, I was going to really like working there.

And in fact. I love working there…

In the Art House, creative ideas and projects flourish as much as these Sarafina Basket Bunnies

And every day Milo (below) and his buddy Finley come to work every day and hang out with us.

I love working in a place that has dogs.

So if you have been wondering where I’ve disappeared to, it’s just to work.

In a really fabulous, cool, fun, inspiring – not in my house kind of work…

If you are ever in the area, you should check out the Sarafina Art House at 1752B Appleton Road, Elkton, MD 21921.

Current Sarafina Art House 2015 hours Wed-Sat 10am-5pm EDT.

There are lots of great artists with work in the gallery of the Art House, so if you need a gift or just want something special for yourself – stop by!

Now this girl is off to go make some more beads, as I have the Bead and Button show in two weeks in Milwaukee, WI!
