We got in!

I'm happy to report that La Femme Monkita and Jennifer Joy Creative were accepted to the Detroit Urban Craft Fair Nov. 15 at the Fillmore in Detroit (formerly the State Theatre).

We applied as joint vendors and were one of 66 individuals or groups chosen from 185 who applied. Everyone I have spoken to who has participated in the fair in the past said it is a lot of fun and there are some truly amazing and unique items available. Food will be available for purchase throughout the day by the vegan eatery and cooking school, Detroit Evolution Laboratory .

We will have our own booth featuring many of Jennifer Joy Creative's handmade eco-friendly clothing and accessories, hand spun and hand-dyed yarn in addition to La Femme Monkita's hand-dyed yarn and knitted goods.

I'm sure I'll be sending out some kind of reminder as the fair gets closer, but I just wanted to let everyone know!

To check out JJC's goods, visit her Etsy shop and, as always, you can check out my stuff in my Etsy shop as well.

Hope to see you in November!

New baby blanket!

I've knitted my fourth or fifth baby blanket in recent weeks -- this one to sell! I had so much fun using some really vibrant colors that I think would be wonderful for a little girl or a little boy.

Here are a couple of pictures, and you can check it out in the La Femme Monkita Etsy shop HERE.

Vegan coffee cozy featured in Etsy Treasury!

La Femme Monkita's tri-color knitted vegan coffee cozy is featured in an Etsy Treasury created by MegzyTred.

She said:

I love this concept and it looks really cozy too!
I had this one favorited in my other store, but this morning I used it to make my treasury really sparkle!

The colors look really nice and it's always refreshing to get to point out to others that vegan or recycled doesn't have to be drab or boring!

You can check out the treasury HERE.
