Hiddenstitch in Bridges

If you haven't flipped through this weeks copy of Bridges magazine check out this article on the lovely and talented Ricki Skoretz of Hiddenstitch:

Ricki reclaims old furniture, stripping pieces down to their bones and refinishing them. Her craftsmanship is amazing and I love her choices of fabrics. The piece in the photo above was one of my favorites. It swivelled and rocked! Seriously, how much better does it get than that. I'm still kicking myself for missing out on that one.

See more of her work at:

This lovely photo of Ricki at the Flock and Gather Winter Wonders Market this past winter was taken by Erin Weiss.
