New Soaps

Linwood folk have been busy with home renovation projects and other obligations, but we're still trying to squeeze in some time for arts & crafts. We are experimenting with a few new soap scents, including Lemongrass Mint and Fennel Clove. Check us out at First Fridays to smell our new creations.

Recent Acquisition

I don't know much about sewing machines, but I don't think this one is anything spectacular or rare. That doesn't change my affections for it's beautiful appearance. I wasn't even in the market for one, but a brief Craigslist browse, led to a 30 minute car ride and a new addition to our craft room. It was made in 1928 and will hopefully last for many more years to come. It is electric, but we hope to make a treadle one day so that it can be manually powered.
