Finally!  Something for the kiddos!  Mosey Handmade will be joining our vendors at The Big Chill with the upcycled clothes, felted hats, and Waldorf-inspired playthings that are the creations of Jes Anthonis, lady behind the magic.  Sometimes pictures speak more for these great items than my rambling can.  I’m feeling a little speechless at all this kiddie goodness, so let’s have a picture show:

Hoo lordy, lordy.  Server was down tonight so although today’s vendor spotlight was ready to go HOURS ago I had to wait to put it up!  Argh!!  Today we’re featuring Threads of Hope, and guest writer Malaika Picard of Hand-Me-Down-Designs has been so kind as to write it!  Here we go:

We’re so excited about all of our great vendors, each and every one of them an artist in their own medium.  Who knew Maine had such talent?  WE DID!

Wow! Splash of Summery Color from Threads of Hope

Today’s spotlight shines in a little woodsy neighborhood in Waterboro, home of Threads of Hope, started by Donna Hebert.  She and her daughter, Elizabeth, have taken ‘home-spun’ to new levels.

What started as a desire to make modest girls’ and women’s clothing became a labor of love as the Hebert family embarked on the journey of adoption.  Seeking to raise the funds to give two Ethiopian children a loving home, the Hebert women set to work making skirts and dresses for sale with all of the proceeds going to their adoption fund.

Easy, Over-the-Head Clothes for Girls and Young Women by Threads of Hope

Their simple styles, coupled with warm, cheerful prints will get you feeling bright and cheery in no time!  Spring thaw….bring it on!

Did I mention…they have snoods, too!

Snoods! Oh yes, oh yes, oh yes.
