Join Us at Another Damn Craft Show June 13th!

Fuzzy - 1 (1)I am busy making Fuzzy Soaps™ for Another Damn Craft Show at Art Enables on June 13th. This being organized by the amazing Jessica Blaszczak of This Little Piggy and Beth Baldwin of Tigerflight, two leading creatives/organizers for the DC area craft scene. It also features many, many of my favorite DC-area crafters. You can read more about the show and the featured artists on the Another Damn Craft Show Blog!

The soaps are an old customer favorite, available only at shows. Made with organic soap and wrapped in sustainably raised and dyed merino wool, these little weirdos are practical and fun. I will have them in a variety of colors and flavors!
