Red Trillium Studio Tour

Red Trillium Studio Tour

Sadly, with COVID rampant, I chose not to participate in this Fall’s Red Trillium Studio Tour. Apparently, I’m not alone…tough times.

I will return in the Spring when I will be, once again, outdoors with painter Jeffrey Sugarman.

I will list my hand knit scarves, socks etc on my Etsy page.


I’ll see you in the Spring!
