Harvest Time

I am feeling a bit like an instruction manual at this moment as opposed to a novel; all the activity of the past week has been a bit overwhelming. But if I stay on task and follow the morning check list, that feeling quickly melts away.

That said, it is an exciting moment for Kata Golda! So many things have happened this past week, with many more things on the horizon — including a live craft demo at Etsy's Brooklyn office.

Here's everything that's going on:

Kata Golda's New 2010-2011 Collection

I'm pleased to announce that my new 2010-2011 collection is ready, with printed catalogs making their way into the world and a newly refreshed web site open for shopping.

I have a lot of new designs for classic Kata Golda favorites, such as the felt patch photo albums and tooth fairy pillows, and have introduced many new items as well. One that I am really excited about is the do-it-yourself kits, which provide materials for the patterns in my new book.

[BELOW] The Stuffed Dog (Boy) Kit comes with all the materials you need to make one of the stuffed animal projects from Kata Golda's Hand-Stitched Felt.

Book Release: Kata Golda's Hand-Stitched Felt

My first craft book came out on October 1, and the team at STC Craft | Melanie Falick Books put together a lovely short video that stars the mice from the book's finger puppet project.

October 19: Kata Golda at Craft Night at Etsy Labs

Etsy kindly invited me to lead a workshop at Craft Night, their open-house gathering of crafters that's held weekly in their Brooklyn office. Join me there at 4 p.m. on Monday, October 19 for a workshop on how to make two felt projects from my book: photo pockets and business card holders.

Sign up to attend in person, or watch the live video feed on Etsy's Virtual Lab at 5 p.m. EST (2 p.m. PST).

Please note: in order to watch Etsy's video feed, you must log in, so plan accordingly. You can register for your free account at Etsy.com.

Thank you to everyone who helped and worked hard to make all these things possible; your tireless efforts are greatly appreciated.

Happy stitching!
