I am a bit beside myself today. In addition to having had the honor to feature Bethany Scheidt-Coulombe of Sweet Sincerity (see previous post) I just received an excellent, interview-y email from Jen at Quench Metalworks. A little background here: I’ve been salivating over Jen’s work for quite some time now, from seeing the ‘candy’ line (bright, contrasty colors set in beautiful, chunky silver) in stores to her great work popping up on the front page of Etsy on a regular basis — so ‘craft crush’ doesn’t even come close to describing my feelings about Quench Metalworks. I’m like a giddy, little schoolgirl being able to bring you the following correspondence between Jen and myself this weekend:
The BIG THAW: What products in particular will you be bulking up on for The THAW? What Springtime crafts get your most excited?
Quench Metalworks: I’m bringing a nice selection of boot button/sprout earrings and new pendants feature those lovely porcelain, image transfer cabochons in lovely spring hues. I hope to have some new necklace, earring, and pendant designs to reveal as well.
Springtime crafts: I LOVE decoupaging eggs with pastel tissue paper and vintage papers. I’ve been blowing out our hens’ eggs, so I have a huge basket ready to create into lovely Easter eggs.
The BIG THAW Arts, Crafts and Vintage Sale will be held on Saturday, April 16th at the Mayo Street Arts Center at 10 Mayo St. in Portland, Maine. From 10am-4pm you can browse, shop, or totally indulge with nearly 40 vendors at the ready to fill your shopping bags. The BIG THAW merchandise (pins, magnets and posters) will be available, as well, if you’re totally loving our graphics. We look forward to seeing you there!
