Marin Handmade Members in the Marin IJ Again, Thanksgiving 2015

In 2014, the Marin Independent Journal featured our Marin Handmade collective on the first page of its holiday gift guide, written by Judith M. Wilson. This year Judith included two of our most active members (on page 4); Charlene Lundgren Frischer for her felting and handmade bears (, and Karen Giles for her nuno felted scarves and bangles. Congrats! We are looking for a link to the article online, but in the meantime, here is a photo showing Buster the bear (he’s waiting for you to take him home)!



We found it! Click here to read the entire article online, and also learned another one of our members, Virginia Simpson-Magruder is mentioned, for her soldered jewelry (on page 6)! She will be at the Marin MOCA Open Studios this year.
