spring @ migration

It's been quiet here on the migration blog as I work on my usual spring things: taxes, show applications, travel plans for said shows, building up inventory. I've also been a little preoccupied with some more serious things this year. As a result, I made these plans, which do have an effect on the migration shop.

It's all exciting stuff! Above is a shot of some new designs in progress, and below is a little preview shot of the first collection (of gathered items for charity -- more details here) going up tonight in the migration goods shop. Hope to see you there!

2nd annual cabin fever show this weekend!


Got cabin fever?
Then the 2nd Annual Cabin Fever Indie Gift Show is just what the doctor ordered. And the doctor wants you heart healthy on Valentine’s Day, so shop indie for your sweetie! Browse for fabulous handmade wares from 60 of the area’s top independent designers, artists and artisans at the 2nd Annual Cabin Fever Indie Gift Show. Choose from an exceptional array of indie goods: jewelry, handbags and wearables, stationary and paper goods, re-purposed accessories, gourmet foods and flowers, bath and body products, plus lots and lots of chocolate and hearts!

Cabin Fever will be held indoors at the Cathedral Hs Gym (home to the SoWa Holiday Market) in the thick of the SoWa Art and Media district, within walking distance of Boston’s best artist studios, galleries, boutiques and restaurants. So mark your calendars for Sunday, February 13th. Handmade retail therapy at its best!

I've got lots of new flowers, pudgy bears, toast + more, plus mounds of yarn + fiber that I've been hoarding for this show, so please stop by to say hello + check things out if you're in the area!

open studio event this weekend!

So, I moved into a new (physical) space as well recently-- a new studio! It's at Western Avenue Studios in Lowell, MA, and I love it! I've been taking my sweet time choosing colors, painting the walls, cleaning the floor, moving furniture around... and now I have just one day to finish it all (or at least make it presentable), because I'm participating in my first WAS First Saturday Open Studios event this weekend!

Saturday, February 5th to be exact. At the same time, I'm also participating in an event called Gifts from the HeART that's happening within the studio buildings. You pick up a postcard and visit participating studios, where you get a sticker for stopping by. The more stickers you collect, the larger the gift certificate drawing you get to enter. So fun! And I'm ridiculously excited to give out stickers.

If you're in the neighborhood, please stop by and say hello! I'm having a studio-warming party during open studio hours, 12-5. I'll have food + drinks + stickers! And specials! As in sale prices + stuff that never makes it online + probably some freebies. My studio is #410, in the C Mill. I'm not on the printed directory yet, but I'll have signs + postcards up.


Of course, if you need additional motivation, there are over 140 artists in the building, and a large number of them participate in open studios. Oh yeah, and the Classic Elite Factory Store is also at WAS.

Have a great weekend!
