Gifts for the nature lover on your list

This holiday season you’ve got a lot of new flora and fauna textiles to choose from for the nature lover on your shopping list.

First and foremost, my new frog terrarium infinity scarf featuring extinct or endangered species is available on my online shop. The paintings for this pattern were inspired by my artist residency this year at the Richards-Zawacki Herpetology Lab at the University of Pittsburgh, which studies how to best conserve and care for vulnerable amphibian populations.

This year I’m also offering my online customers free gift wrapping with your purchase and direct shipping to the recipient. If you’re interested, place your order and then drop a line to with the recipient’s name, shipping address and any note you’d like me to add from you to them.

And of course, those of you who subscribe to my email and/or mailing list get 15% off every order. Enter your info here to get your coupon code.

PLEASE NOTE: Online orders for local pick up must be made by December 11; online orders to be shipped must be made by December 13!

For those of you shopping at Handmade Arcade in Pittsburgh this Saturday, December 8, you’ll have an exclusive collection of new patterns to choose from. I’ll have a very limited number of several new patterns I’m testing in preparation for my exhibition at Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Garden opening in January. This is your only chance to get one for this holiday season. These patterns are so new I don’t even have the scarves completely sewn yet or photographed, but here’s a teaser of the patterns you can expect to see on Saturday.

Happy shopping!
