Spring, A Good Time For New Beginnings

As most of you know by now, my website was hacked in January while I was on a 6 week trip out West.  Not fun, especially because I always would rather be dyeing fabric or sewing so I put off fixing the issues till now.  I apologize for the inconveniences it may have caused!

I have a new website I am currently tweaking the layout of now.  I have switched my store back to Etsy for the time being because I have found 90% of my business is commission based, so it is easier to just let Etsy do the work for me basically!

A lot has happened in the first few months of 2017!  To start I had 14 quilts and 4 table runners in an art show at the Crooked Tree Arts Center in Traverse City, Michigan for a month.  It was a great show and I really enjoyed being a part of it!  Below are a few photos from the show!

I was lucky enough to tag along on a photography trip to Telluride, Colorado, Moab, Utah, Salt Lake City, Utah and Jackson, Wyoming this winter.  It was an incredible trip and I promise to post about it and show photographs because I was insanely inspired by it!

Thanks for being so patient with me! I  will be blogging more regularly and updating everyone on what I have been doing!

Spring Updates!

Spring has finally sprung in Northern Michigan, the woods are coming alive with trillium, ferns, mushrooms and all sorts of new growth, plus my studio is booming with natural light.  With spring always comes changes and new growth in humans as well.  My new “growth” is that I will have my products available for sale starting in June at Spice Harbor in Harbor Springs, MI !  I am so excited about this new endeavor and couldn’t be more happy to share it with you.

 For those friends and customers who don’t get a chance to come visit our little paradise on Lake Michigan, don’t worry, you can still place custom commission orders with me year round and you will be able to purchase a select few items listed on my etsy site.

My goal going forward is to focus more on commission work, gallery work and work to be sold at Spice Harbor.  I really appreciate everyone’s support, without you, Kathryn Marie designs wouldn’t exist!

If you happen to be in Northern Michigan in June, the quilt pictured below will be on display and for sale at Three Pines Studio in Cross Village for their Still Life exhibit, May 28-June 15.
