Etsy Chainmaillers Team Trunk Show

Come join us on Sept. 14th in the Etsy Virtual Labs for a Trunk Show.  Team members will be on hand to talk about chainmaille in general, but will also talk about some of their creations and how they do what they do.  The excitement starts at 7:00 pm EST.

You will also be able to vote on our “Linked to the Sea” contest.

Red Tape

About a month ago the United States Air Force Academy called me.  The art director there is a former student of mine and she was inquiring about me coming out there to teach.  Fast foward to yesterday when she called me again.  She needed some information from me.  Seems in order for me to teach there, I have to be put on a government contract.  I gave her the information she needed and she told me that I would get a call in a week or so from somebody higher up in the system to verifiy and get yet more info.

Seems like an aweful lot of work just to let me come on the base (which is an open base) and teach.


Yesterday and today were spent at Woodland Park High School teaching their art and jewelry class some chianmaille.  Last semester we taught them a byzantine pattern, this time we decided on HP 3-1.  All the students finished a “stretch” bracelet and had a great time.  There were even a few that got bit by the chainmaille bug and got some extra rings to start their next project!

We’d like to thank Woodland Park High School for having us up again.  We always have a blast.

In the news

So this is a little overdue, but earlier this summer we were vendors at a charity car show.  The local newspaper was out covering it and the reporter couldn’t stop touching some of our designs.  She ended up getting a picture of us and putting it in the paper.  Picture was taken from the online version.

Rock Ledge Ranch

Just a little over a week until our big show at Rock Ledge Ranch and I am starting to stress out.  For those that don’t know, this is a HUGE show that attracts tens (if not hundreds) of thousands of people.  We’ve done many shows, but this will be our biggest by far.  I still have a list a mile long of items I need to make, and a list almost as long of “support” type stuff that needs to be done.

Even if you have seen us before at a show, stop by and visit.  We will have a complete new look.  We have a new tent, new displays, a new banner sign and lots of new and exciting designs.

If you want to come out and see us, but don’t know where, have a look at the flyer we have up here for more information.

Remember, It’s in the Maille!
