Fall markets & new Bindery location

Many changes have taken place this past 2 months, and I find myself making books & art in La Conner, Washington! It all happened very quickly. I still have my Lopez Island schoolbus “glamp”,  or “home for the end-times”, but plan to spend this Winter (and hopefully a lot longer) in my new digs in town. I’m living in a sprawling 100+ year-old house and have a gigantic, sunny room with a view facing South and West, so I will be happily working at home. I feel fortunate that book work – at least mine – is low-tech enough to do almost anywhere. So far, many doors are opening and I’m excited to explore an area that’s fairly new to me, but where my great-grandparents (and great-greats) made their lives – where the Skagit River meets Puget Sound.

Despite moving my studio to and fro this past couple of months, I’ve also managed to make some new Journals and cards, which can be found in my Etsy shop, Slow Art Studio.




I have a full upcoming schedule of markets around Western Washington, plus two bookbinding classes.

A “Small Books and Albums” class is being offered in downtown La Conner on Sunday, October 22 and again at the San Juan Island Library on Wednesday, November 1. Instruction and all materials are provided. Email me for more information! brennajael@gmail.com

Upcoming Fairs & Markets:

Saturday October 28: Anacortes Farmers Market,  9 am – 2 pm

Saturday November 4: Inter-Island Creative Affair, Woodmen Hall, Lopez Island, 9:30-2:30

Saturday November 11: Holiday Festival, Beau Lodge, Bow, 10-4

Saturday/Sunday November 18-19: Anacortes Holdiay Market, Port Building, 10 -4

Saturday/Sunday November 25-26: San Juan Island Artisans Holiday Marketplace, Friday Harbor Elementary, Saturday 10-5, Sunday 10-4

Saturday December 9: Duck the Malls, Capitol Theater, Olympia, 11-4

I’ll still have Journals & original art cards at Chimera Cooperative Gallery in Lopez Village through the end of 2017.

I love in-person marketing. Come say hello! You don’t have to buy anything, I swear.

Happy Solstice, Beautiful Hanukkah, Merry Christmas. Be well and be thankful.
