Dancing Dog Studio

Like a vegetable, all of my works are tended by hand; I hand-design and print each edition using tradional screen-printing techniques with waterbased inks. Printing in small batches of 25-50 towels, notecards, aprons, fine-art prints, table linens and articles of clothing; each piece has been coaxed into being by my two hands. I am an avid gardener and this is most often the inspiration for my work. Animals, flowers, and leaves adorn my functional art which is created in a nook in the heart of my home: the kitchen. As a young local artist I find that working out of my home is quite a challenge, but gives my work a greater link to my personal landscape and allows for fresh ideas to evolve.

Donna's Handcrafted Jewelry

I have lived in quiet little Cove, OR for 5 years. I love the scenery and the people. I am a retired Real Estate sales person. Two years ago I experimented putting some beads together to make some jewelry. Now it is a passion. I try to make each piece different from the others. My jewelry is priced in a wide range considering the economic status of our community at this time.

My husband and I enjoy the many and diverse visitors we have had to our booth since we have been doing this. We have had people from India, Finland and Tanzania, but mostly from the Grande Ronde Valley. We often see the same friendly faces through out the year.

I plan to continue making jewelry as long as it continues to be enjoyable and time allows.

Come on down to the Farmers Market at Max Square on Saturdays.

Heritage Needlework

Heritage Needlework was born out of a life-long love of creating beautiful things out of yarn and fiber. I have been knitting, crocheting, and embroidering for as long as I can remember, I taught myself to spin yarn in 2001, and picked up weaving in 2003.  If it’s related to yarn or fiber, I’ve probably tried it!

I offer hand spun and hand dyed yarns and spinning fiber for fellow fiber-crafters, as well as a variety of finished goods. Almost everything is hand dyed, the handspun yarn is made using a spinning wheel, and the woven items are created on a treadle loom.  In addition to texiles, I also offer lathe-turned wood items made by my husband, and beaded jewelry made by my daughter.
