Yulefest 2014




After taking a few years off, we will again be participating in the Yulefest celebration at the Nordic Heritage Museum in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle.

We are so excited for the opportunity, and are so looking forward to the food, decorations, holiday spirit, and Nordic camaraderie that this kind of event brings!

At our booth we will be selling our signature dishes, towels, pillows, and a variety of other fun products.  We will also have a limited quantity of all natural, and wonderfully scented Alpine Hills Soap.  They are the most fantastic soaps, and they make great gifts.

We will be located in the new, outside tent area in the parking lot of the Museum.

Stop by on November 22nd or 23rd from 10-5!


Yulefest location:

Lots of Dots



I'm working on some new fabric designs that will soon be a new selection of pillow inserts and kitchen towels for the shop.  I've been free-form printing them instead of stenciling or screen printing, as I'm really liking the varied, imperfect look.




Lately I've really been into patterns that are geometric and simple, as I think they make a great statement in a room. They can be really nice for pairing with other busier patterns that you might already have in your home, whether of the same color, or a complimenting color.  They also add a nice touch of whimsy to a room, and keep things bright and fun, which can be great addition to a space if the decor is in danger of getting too "serious".




The fabric I'm working with is 100% unbleached cotton, made in the US, and really durable.  It is pretty similar to the fabric from the outdoor canvas pillows we sold last summer, but just a little bit less rigid.  It holds up well to a lot of use, and has a nice industrial touch to it.


Stay tuned--the finished products will be in the shop soon!
