I started a new two week boot making class this morning with two students. This is what their boots look like after one day.
There’s a nice article about me this month in the UK magazine World Footwear.
Here’s a link to a great post from Leslie Myers, a fellow shoe fanatic and blogger who was at the Footwear Symposium in Ashland, Oregon. Since my specialty is carrying a camera around but never actually taking pictures with it, she did a much better job of documenting the weekend. She has a short video of brief interviews with several of the footwear makers who attended, and I’m one of them!
My family and I are in Arkansas at the lake for the weekend. I’ve been up since 7am picking wild raspberries and these are the results of my labors. I only ran into one spider but I killed him with my bare hands (by beating my leg black and blue). I’ll leave the sound track for that little episode up to your imagination.
