Many months ago I wrote about kniting The Anne Wrap, a pattern from Kalamazoo Knits. I finished it early summer but never got around to photographing it for you to see. Well, now I am really enjoying being wrapped in this nice design and here it is.
Friday evening, Dec. 19, I will be displaying some of my hand dyed yarns and hand felted hats at the resurrected Baker Furniture Building located in the Historic Milling District of Downtown Allegan. About 2 years ago, Deb and Joe Leverence of Dearborn Michigan began the revitalization of this century old building, now known as Baker Allegan Studios. Acting as their own general contractor, and doing nearly all of the building themselves, the Leverence’s have worked tirelessly, making the drive across the state every weekend to put their heart and soul as well as their life’s savings into their dream. The newly restored, and handicap accessible building provides 6 working artists studios for rent in the lower level. The main floor has a 1000 sq. ft. Art Gallery, and the 2000 sq. ft. Fiber Arts Studio of Sow Spun Silk, the weaving and spinning shop belonging to Debbie Leverence. The top level will eventually become their apartment.
If you are near us, plan to stop by, more than a dozen artists from Allegan, Detroit and Grand Rapids will be featured.
