Etsy Wedding Team August Giveaways!

Hello, friends. I am so pleased to be a member of the Etsy Wedding Team and we are hosting a special giveaway for the month of August. Please be sure to visit the Team's blog to learn about these wonderful opportunities!

Here is the link, and I will post the link on the sidebar as well! You are bound to find something special.

Happy weekend, everyone!
Be well, Kate :)

Pretty Purple Petal Cone with Purple Posy

How do you like my tongue-twister for the day? Seriously, I am really pleased with how this petal cone turned out. I think it would be lovely at a wedding with purple/lavender/hyacinth colors.

I am ready to embark on my "biggest" weaving project yet. I will be weaving fabric that is 30" wide (not wide by many weaver's standards), however, since I use such fine threads, I will be using 920 threads! This is a lot of string.

We have a new addition to our pet family. My son, Nathan, has a new Betta fish. He is blue and very graceful. This lovely little fish is named "Jaws." Ah....13 year old boys. You gotta love 'em.

Be well and TGIF! I'll take pictures of my big weaving project as it progresses!

Featured on Etsy Wedding Team Blog

Good morning, friends.

I'm enjoying working with some fall colors as the temperatures and humidity soar here in NH. Here is a picture of an autumn-inspired petal cone for your wedding. These petal cones have also been purchased by my clients for a delicate home accessory.

I'm the featured weekly artist on the Etsy Wedding Team blog. I am very pleased to be a member of this group and have enjoyed getting to know my fellow teammates. They are all very talented and devoted artisans. You can find my interview here: It is worth your while to visit the Etsy Wedding Team blog, as many of us highlight special sales and/or giveaways on occasion.

Be well, all. My youngest had a tetanus shot this morning, so I imagine that this afternoon will be filled with some quiet time!

Fall Weddings from Nutfield Weaver

Happy Tuesday from Londonderry, NH. Despite the warm weather here (yes, it has finally reached 80 degree temps) I've been thinking about fall. I've had the opportunity to chat with many young ladies who are planning fall weddings. While I was a spring bride myself, I think that fall is such a lovely time to tie the knot! My petal cone for an autumn wedding sold just last evening, which inspired me to create more accessories using autumn-toned embellishments. Pictures to come soon!

Here is a pic. of the petal cone for a fall wedding!

Off to the beach with my boys today; the NH coastal waters are chilly but they are loads of fun!
Be well, Kate

Link to my newsletter feature in "Martha Stewart"

Nutfield Weaver is back home in Londonderry after a lovely trip to Michigan and Toronto to visit our family.

I believe I have a link available to the Martha Stewart newsletter feature from last week! I hope that you have a chance to visit the site and to see the upcoming "Doers of the Week" as well -- they are truly a creative and inspiring group of people! Here's my feature:

Working on more lace and will be incorporating some fabrics in autumn colors into the line as well. For the time being, however, there are several loads of post-vacation laundry to manage!
Be well, Kate :)

"Doer of the Week" Feature from MSLO

Hello on a lovely Monday from Nutfield Weaver! We had a great weekend weather-wise here in New Hampshire. We were able to spend a lot of time in the vegetable garden on Sunday!

The Martha Stewart "Dreamers Into Doers" feature about my weaving endeavours will be online this Wednesday. I am so excited! I will include the link when it becomes available.

I have a new ring pillow and tissue holder available on Etsy today. They both feature pretty purple violet flowers on handwoven ivory lace.

Be well! Kate :)

Front Page! Yes!

Nutfield Weaver just did some research and learned that one of my items was featured on the Front Page of Etsy some time ago! My "Petit Fleur" ring bearer pillow was featured on April 24, 2009! No wonder the hit rates were high that day!

Enjoying the summer weather, which has finally arrived in NH after many cloudy and rainy days.

Be well, Kate

Black Lace

Hello, everyone! Nutfield Weaver is giddy despite the recent rainfall! I'm tickled pink to have been selected as a featured contestant on Martha Stewart's "Dreamers Into Doers" online newsletter! I am so grateful for this opportunity!

I have been playing with my black lace and have two new items available featuring this handwoven fabric. The black lace is very subtle and has a lovely texture.

Looking forward to seeing the article in the Londonderry Times about Nutfield Weaver that is being distributed around town today. I will investigate possible links to the article, but I'm not yet sure if this is available.

Be well, Kate :)
