When I started reading Stephanie’s blog, Little Birds, back in early 2005 I remember wishing that I could make things. She wrote about and showed us the most inspiring little projects and soft sculptures. I was enchanted! The dedicated skill of working with her hands seemed to come so naturally to Stephanie and I wanted to feel that myself.

This summer I had the chance to do just that. Stephanie designed a handmade yarn project (that I am crazy about) and Chloe, our assistant, and I put ourselves to work. We even got RTS, one of my creative partners, to help. It was really pretty funny to see him braiding but he sort of got into it as well!

We had everyone helping. We sort of got addicted!

And in the end …

… we had a whole lot of gorgeous pieces to wear in our own brand new Quince & Co. Interwoven collection.

Next week you can start making your own Quince & Co. Interwoven collection. I just know you’re going to love the project and the book. It’s perfect for the coming autumn season. I can’t show you more today but next week I will talk more about how this project came about with the lovely ladies at Quince & Co. Stay tuned!

I love to make things.

As my life has changed, my children have grown, and new opportunities have weaved in and out if my life, somehow the making, the tinkering and playing, has taken a back seat. So it was with great excitement when the folks at Quince & Co. put a pile of the softest, most lovely yarn in my hands and gave me the opportunity to make again.

For weeks, I knotted and wove and twisted and tied, looking for something I could share with MAV and, eventually, you. I think I found just the right thing. You’ll find it in our Interwoven collaboration, ready for release next week.

More than just a how-to, Interwoven is a true collaboration between MAV and me. We share all the things that brought this project together—a love of craft, but also a love of home, color, comfort and the natural world.

I am really excited to be able to share this whole project with you and get this Quince & Co. yarn into your hands. You are going to love it. I hope you’ll make something.
