Incase you haven’t noticed, things have cooled off a bit as Fall has arrived in Door County. The Angela Lensch Gallery has just the thing to help you stay warm and get cozy with this yearly phenomena. Please gather your friends and meet three lovely ladies who reign as” artists of warmth” on Saturday, October 10th, from 12-5pm.
You’ll want to come early because hand knit and hand crocheted creations will go quickly. Each one is absolute fuzzy, warm goodness. They are unique, comfy, irresistible and a fun fall fashion statement.
You will marvel at the intricate designs and whimsy tassels in Kathy Sander’s hand knit creations. Kathy is an artistic spirit who enjoys creating wearable art with warmth, color and texture. Kathy has a BA in drawing and ceramics and loves teaching ceramics to seniors. You’ll need to see and feel, first hand, her silk, mohair and wool winter wear.
Tawnie Perkovich, creator of the successful business Gypsy Stomp, has been crotcheting since she was 7 years old. All of her designs are original creations and crocheted by her alone. She loves dazzling her fans with special order design work. Recently she created a personalized hat for the popular band, Wifee and the Huzzband, called the Huzzbeanie. Tawnie’s creations have such a mellow vibe perhaps because much of her crocheting is done to music. It follows that artists, musicians and gypsies at heart are so loyal to her.
Come slip into a pair of the coziest wooliest mittens imaginable, hand crafted by Mary Schneider. By seeing the beauty in what we already have, she repurposes material into her snuggly woolen mittens. As a practicing oncology nurse, Mary finds sewing mittens gives her a sense of quiet peacefulness. You can’t help but feel her grace in these mittens; especially when a portion of the proceeds are given back to her cancer center survivors.
All we need now, is hot cocoa
