Welcome to The Phoenix Files!

This blog is a collection of papers and how-to articles I have written over the past 25+ years, as well as my travel journals and announcements.  Scholarly works from "The Library" on my old website, are labeled here as "Historica Tractatu." 

My travels have had heavy influence on my work and are the 'back story' behind many of my designs. Some of my older journals are revised from the original, and most link to photo albums on Facebook.  

Any Day Hats - a Recap

Any Day Hats at Beppa Studio - a recap

I hit the ground running in June by helping to organize, and then participate in this curated show at Beppa Studio, a local fiber arts studio and gallery.  We deemed it a success, with 6 artisan hatmakers showing their newest wares, as well as a collection of vintage pieces for sale, in a lovely boutique setting. Our gala on Friday night was well attended, and traffic was steady in spite of the hot, sunny day that normally pulls Seattleites into their gardens.

Here are some photos from the show. I even succeeded in getting press coverage in the Seattle Met Magazine!

Beppa Studio has additional events coming up, including their Button Sale August 26-27. Visit their Event Page for details.
