North Penn Craft Show November 20. 2021

North Penn Holiday Craft Market is returning for the first time since November of 2019! I have been creating new work and if you are in Southeast PA, this is your opportunity to buy in person. The show is Saturday November 20th, 2021 from 9:30-4:30 at the North Penn High School, 1340 S Valley Forge Rd, Lansdale, PA, 19446. Admission is $6 and benefits the North Penn International Friendship Committee student exchange program.

Nutmeg Designs is usually in Booth 98, but if that changes, I will update. We look forward to seeing you.

New Crop of Colorful Striped Mosaic Pendants: Curbside Pickup in Lansdale April 30-May 3rd, 2021

Striped Mosaic Pendants by Margaret Almon

April 30th-May 3rd 20% of all our sales from the Nutmeg Designs Etsy Shop or online invoice are going to Manna to help feed hungry folks in our Lansdale area community.  I am restocking the Etsy Shop with new striped pendants, frames and Wayne is adding suncatchers.

We will have curbside pickup in Lansdale – we will contact you to set up a time after you make your order. Wayne is making strudel for our clients. If you can’t make it in person, we will be shipping free within the US.

We miss greeting people and helping them with their bags of groceries to donate, but we do have an online fundraiser if you want to donate directly. Every $5 donation gives you a chance at one of 3 Nutmeg Designs Gift Certificates for anything in the Etsy Shop. The drawing is May 4th, 2021.

Wear the Rainbow: From Capes to Pendants at Denise Shardlow’s Open Studio on August 18th, 2017

Fashion Designer/Fiber Artist Denise Shardlow has invited Nutmeg Designs to be the feature artist at her Open Studio in Elkins Park. I will be there with mosaic pendants and a selection of other mosaics, and suncatchers by Stratoz. Her studio is an immersion in color with poppy red walls and anyone with an earthy orange living room is a Color Soul Sister! Denise has been busy making capes in a rainbow of colors out of scraps of melton wool.

Mosaic Patchwork Pendants Making Their Debut at OJR Show

Several people have requested I make mosaic jewelry, and I finally took the plunge!   The center pendant is composed of colored gold smalti in a Log Cabin quilt block.  The yellow ochre and blue green pendants are a mixture of gold smalti, glass and ceramic tile, and millefiori.  At first I was a bit intimidated by such a small surface area(1 inch square), but it turned out to be a fun challenge, and I’m excited to make wearable work!
