Binding Obsession at Transformations

Binding Obsession continues its rampage through Hopewell, New Jersey unabated. Although I won’t be at the 40th Annual Transformations Art & Craft Show in person, my books will be! (Alongside, once again, the always-lovely work of Everlasting Blossoms.) If you’re in the area, please consider stopping by to show your support for local artists and artisans—and to […]

Binding Obsession at the Hopewell Harvest Fair

After much suspense, I can now officially confirm that Binding Obsession will be at the Hopewell Harvest Fair in New Jersey next weekend. I’ll be sharing a table with two delightful ladies, Karin of Everlasting Blossoms and Jordan of Fits to a Tee. This will be my first time vending, and the day is about much more […]

Not dead yet

It’s been ages since the Binding Obsession  blog was active; readers have my most sincere apologies. The past few months have brought numerous changes, and blogging (not to mention bookbinding) time has been short—virtually nonexistent. The last day that a blog entry was schedule to post, Boston—not to mention I—was changed forever. I don’t usually link […]

Midnight landscape: a long-stitch album

The blog has been conspicuously quiet for some months; I hope my readers will forgive the silence, especially since this relative reticence might continue for some time.

Potential downtime this weekend

Starting tomorrow (or perhaps this evening, if I’m feeling up to it), Binding Obsession will be making the move to a self-hosted installation. has been good to me, but I’m starting to feel stifled by its limitations, and if I’m going to spend money to make this website look the way I want it […]

The road goes ever on and on…

It’s not official yet, but it’s close enough—I’ve finished graduate school. I have a Master’s of Science. And I’m about to get married and take my first European vacation in over ten years. (I fell in love with Europe on that trip so long ago; I look forward to doing so again.) Oh, and I […]
