In addition, this week Hazel officially announced her family’s move back to California later this summer:

Later this summer, my family and I are moving back to California. There will be a short hiatus as we look for a commercial kitchen and obtain the necessary permits. Our target time for reopening is mid October. In the meantime, we are committed to vend at a few more festivals and fairs ( And we are taking online orders until July 10th. Thank you!”

Glass Elements: As you may know, Marja moved to California last year, so I hope this isn’t a trend! Seriously though, the Bay Area is fortunate to have both of them. Marja is keeping busy–this weekend she will be part of an SF Etsy Pop-Up Shop, 5-9pm on Friday, June 20, at West Elm in Emeryville at 5602 Bay Street.

First Issaquah Art Walk of 2014

I haven’t yet gotten into a groove writing blog entries about “my” Flying House artists, but they are definitely keeping busy! Be sure to “Get Notifications”* to receive my quick updates on the Flying House Art & Craft Facebook page.

A number of Flying House artists will be in the June Issaquah Art Walk, the first of the season, continuing every first Friday of the month through September. As many of you know, there are plenty of restaurant choices in downtown Issaquah, and there will be live music to entertain as you visit each of the art venues between 6 and 9pm.

“Ruth” by Ellen Borison

Ellen Borison, talented figurist whom I featured in one of the Art & Sustainability shows I curated at Sightline Institute as well as had a few pieces (and some delicious plum jam!) at Flying House a few years ago, will be part of the Figure Art Show & Sale this weekend at artEAST. During Art Walk, Ellen and other artists will be drawing a costumed model  in the artEAST studio classroom. Selected drawings will be displayed as they are completed, and offered for sale.

It should be a wonderful night for an art walk, so enjoy!
