Local Designer Spotlight: Yorktown Road

Carol Gilbert made her first handbag when she was just a little girl. She also made the fabric for that handbag by hand-weaving through a square loom, again, when she was just a little girl. Color us impressed. 

Gilbert's passion for creating textiles and designing handbags evolved into Yorktown Road, a SF based company that fits our criteria for fabulous local design:  unique, sturdy and well priced.

Countdown to Handmade Nation: Sharon Spain Textiles

More locally designed treats from artists participating at Handmade Nation! Today we're looking at Sharon Spain, who creates delicate, nature-inspired screen-prints on items from pillows to purses and cards. We're most taken with the pillows, which are available in hemp linen and silk dupioni and come in a variety of sizes. The neutral color of the fabric is the perfect background for Spain's colorful, intricate prints, each pulled by hand for a completely one-of-a-kind result.

Bang That Drum: The Tribal & Textiles Arts Show

Score! The artwork is absolutely amazing at the Tribal & Textile Arts Show in the Festival Pavilion at Fort Mason Center.

But so, too, was the McCall Associates buffet at last night’s opening-night party which benefitted the de Young Museum’s Art of Africa, Oceania and the Americas and Textiles Galleries. That’s because McCall Executive Chef Lucas Schoemaker had cooked up our all-time favorite: Swedish Meatballs!
