I love to do gallery shows, but Crafthaus exhibitions offers good visibility & is permanently available on the Internet. Great way to get work out & seen!

If your computer is behaving kooky & you can't resize images, not a problem Marie will do that.

I will be at Peters Valley Craft Center in NJ on Thursday to prep for Lie-Nielson Tool Event & then demonstrating hand tools on Friday & Saturday, Apr 25 & 26.

Marie will be home to accept submissions.

have a great week
