Prairie Knits: Studio Retreat

I was on staff again for this year’s Studio Winter Retreat. This year, we retreated to Gardner, KS, and stayed in a brand new Hampton Inn. We had great classes with national teacher and designer Olga Buraya-Kefelian, the retreat market (manned by yours truly), and, of course, a lot of knitting. Admittedly, I was bummed […]

Headin' Out West

I’m looking ahead to The Studio’s Winter Retreat, which was held in downtown Kansas City last year. However, this year we’re moving the party to Gardner, an old Kansas town where the Sante Fe and Oregon trails intersected. We’re trading in our city slicker vibes for those of the pioneer! While browsing Pinterest right after […]

Produce a Bag

The birds are chirping, Mom’s crocuses are blooming, and I’ve shut off my heat. Spring is here for certain. While I hope our Kansas weather doesn’t jump straight into summer, as it is wont to do, I am planning ahead to what summer will bring. I’m blocking out summer vacations, warm weather activities with my […]

Get into the Madness

In case you didn’t know this about me already, I’m a hardcore Jayhawk (Rock Chalk). I graduated from KU, my dad graduated from KU. College basketball is sacred thing, and was the whole time I was growing up. Now March is upon us, that most unproductive time of year where at least half of my […]
