Another thing happening is the fab charity show I was a part of in Miami is moving up to NYC! The reception and charity auction are being held Monday night, January 28th, at the Cristin Tierney Gallery in Chelsea. I can’t be there – too much to do here! – but my good friend Hally McGehean, who put it all together and is participating will be, as will The Suck Lord, Jamel Shabazz, Adam Horowitz who’s hosting (be still my heart), and a whole lot of other super cool artists.
If you’re in NYC check it out; it should be a lot of fun. Raise a glass for me!
So much wonderful stuff went on this year! Flesh & Fiber, the Home Show, Fiber Philadelphia, Crazy for Cult NYC, starting to work with Co-Op 28, some nice online press… and there’s so much excitement to come in 2013! I’m really looking forward to Stitch Fetish, but more about that later.
Tomorrow I’ll do the whole “what I’m grateful for/what I want to do next year” post, but today, let’s just look at some wonderful old Hollywood NYE images. Hooray for the New Year!
Great news! The Laurie Lipton show at Ace Gallery has been held over until October 6th; now you have plenty of time to get there!
The amazing Kristy Kizzee, also known as Bombastitch, has created something fantastic and is giving it away!!! A fabulous pattern to make an xstitch tribute to MCA. Stitching and BBoys? I can hardly contain myself!
You know I’m stitching this up as soon as I get a chance; one for me, one for MJ, one for T… Go check her shiz out, she’ll hook you up!

The McDLT. I remembered that the hot stays hot, and the cool stays cool. I forgot Jason Alexander’s involvement. That is one bad hair piece, Sir!
I used to work for a fansite which is now defunct, and while there I taped an interview with Kate Flannery, Meredith on The Office. It occurs to me now that the site is dark the interview is nowhere on the web, so, to that end… here it is in transcript form. She’s a pretty funny and cool lady, and super talented. If you’re not already a fan, go check out The Lampshades; you’ll thank yourself for doing so.
Schinders Hi, I’m Schinders and I’m here with Kate Flannery, Meredith, on The Office. Knowing that we are FanLib, the ﬁrst thing I want to ask you is, what are you a fan of?
Kate I am a fan of the fans. I like the fans. I talk to the fans. We all have these MySpace pages that we started the second season of The Office, only because our computers didn’t work the ﬁrst season. And it’s actually been kind of cool to talk to people that are – actually having access to the people that they are admiring. I mean I wish I’d have access – I still don’t even though I’m on the Office (laughs) but it’s kind of interesting. I actually was a really big fan of Annie when I was a kid, and it’s so funny I just saw that documentary which is called … Life After Tomorrow, which sounds like a soap opera – and it’s all these girls that I admired when I was a kid and it’s their lives now which is kind of a strange mix of not what anybody expected… and … it’s just really really weird – it’s like a weird thing – so it’s kind of a full circle for me. I don’t know why I mentioned that ﬁrst, but I was always obsessed with that show so I wish I would have had the access back then that the kids today have now. Read the rest of this entry »
My friend Christine is giving her son his first Teddy Bear for xmas, so of course it will be a Steiff. We had a whole discussion of soft vs. articulated, how one shouldn’t cut the ear tags (like my mother did), and favorite Steiffs of our childhood. She was surfing the interwebs while we chatted and found this Steiff Bear from Neiman Marcus- it’s just too, too.
And here’s Karl with his bear:
If only I had a couple thousand dollars to blow.
It’s amazing, stuff like this makes me so hopeful and scared all at the same time. It seems so obvious. Fingers crossed.
There have been, thank God, some great moments waiting tables through the years, but last night was especially good. I was busying around the burger joint, went over to a new table, “Hi, how are ya, blah blah blah.” The guy had a black sketch pad/journal on the table, with a painted cover. I said, “Hey, that’s cool, is it a Baseman?” He looked at me and said, “I am Baseman.” I was blown away, and apologized, but fawned shamelessly.
He gave me a postcard to a show in he’s doing in Barcelona, and like a dork i asked him to sign it, explaining that i never do that, and shit on actors, but he’s Gary Baseman.
Anyway I served the rest of their meal like a normal person. Blah blah blah. At the end of it, while chatting with his – date? girlfriend? wife?- he was sketching with his pen on his placemat/menu. When he was done he gave it to me and signed it. It’s a nekid girl floating across the menu.
How freaking cool is that?
I promised if he came back i’d fawn less.
