Weekend Reading — 10/13/15

What I’ve been reading online this week:

I’m not on eBay, but maybe I should be. Apparently I could be rolling in money. Ha! Handmade needlework arts are a high profit item on eBay.

I love seeing artists’ workspaces. This week Textileartist.org visited with UK embroidery artist Isobel Currie, and she is super organized. Her work is also amazing.

Noreen Crone-Findlay shares a beautiful prayer shawl she woven for a friend on a triangle loom.

Science says art will make your kids better thinkers (and nicer people).

Melanie discovers this creative collage finishing technique by Summer House Stitche Workes. You can also find a tutorial with video on the SHSW blog.

Video of the Week

I heard this song for the first time this week and it made me cry. It’s simple melody and touching message is perfect for this month of Thanksgiving. You’ll be humming this one for days, even after one viewing. Watch “Grateful” by  Nimo Patel with Daniel Nahmod (and friends).
