Renegade Craft Fair AND SF TWEED Ride

Hi Everyone,
Dave's orange cap is done and waiting for him at work. I hope he likes it! And Mary-Beth loved the Christmas Stocking. :)

I have been making quite a few caps but haven't kept up on the photos. That is part of my Friday plan: 1. make more caps 2. photograph caps 3. everything else that needs to get done (including washing the dog)

Ruth and I have submitted our application for the Renegade Craft Fair. It is a juried show. Now we wait to see if we are in or out. It is a great fair check it out. :)

I would like to show my earrings, caps and tote bags. Guess I better get to sewing.


Post Script: The SF Tweed ride is coming up. Here is a link:

I plan on attending and may bring Luna. I have my outfit all picked out too (black and white dress, pink pumps, new cap by alloneword.

Orange Cap for Dave of Cycle City, and a Dutch Girl Cap for a lady in Brooklyn

Hello Everyone,
I can't believe ten days have passed since I last wrote to you. I have been super busy finishing the Christmas stocking for MaryBeth's grandkid Conor. The pattern was a bit complex but it is all done! Yes. We are very happy about this. I turn it in tomorrow. I hope she likes it.

Now back to alloneword's cap land. I have two orders in for caps (see title). I will be working on them in the a.m.

I also sent off 10 caps to Boston to be silkscreened by e5Charlie and his peeps. I am so excited about this. I will post before and after photos when I get them back. (FYI his stuff is more for folks than kids)

Here is a link to the e5Charlie site:

I hope you like his stuff as much as I do. My favorite is BFF. Which only makes sense, because it is my BFF.

Making stuff and hoping,
Mary E.

PS here is a link to Cycle City (FYI a great shop/site folks tall & small....)

And a query: Should I start making bike basket liners? There are folks who make fancy ones on Etsy and the net...... hummmm....

Found Mag. and Velo Brooklyn Two great things that taste great together with alloneword...

Hi Everyone,
I feel just like a big company CEO!

First: I was featured in this great bike blog:

for this fab shop in Brooklyn called Bushwick Bike Shop. Here is a link to their shop:

I love the pic on the site opening page of the sexy lady on the bike. Please note that the Flicker slide show starts with a pic of alloneword caps. Yeah. I am that good. :) Well I don't really feel that good, however, Bushwick Bike Shop is so cool that I feel a little cool just knowing them.

Next: I'm actually going advertise in one of the premier zines in the whole omni-verse. (drum roll please) Found Magazine !!!! If you don't know who they are please click on this link:

They are fall on the ground funny. Be careful not to read it to much at work. :) The find of the day is a bit addictive.
