I have been meaning to write this post forever. Well, not forever – since April (it’s June now). Since the next session of Design, Carve, Print is about to begin, I figured it was finally time to share some work from the last session. So, today I present the work of Yolanda Gonzalez and Annemiek Mion.

Annemiek Mion

Annemiek Mion is an Amsterdam-based printmaker who screenprints on leather, creating purses, wallets and pouches. See more of her work here and here.


I’m looking forward to the next session of Design, Carve, Print, which begins this weekend. There is still time to sign up. More information and registration are here.


New Field Bag Collaboration with Fringe Supply Co.

Fringe Field Bag by Jen HewettFringe Supply Co. and I collaborated on a new Field Bag. My newsletter subscribers got first dibs on the first batch, but another batch will be available at 10 am PST today.

These are limited-edition bags, so once they’re gone, they’re gone! You can get yours while they last here.

New Work in My Shop!

I’ve finally added the large pieces from my Hwy 5 show to my Etsy shop. There are just five available (I kept one), and they come mounted on acid-free, archival board (for easy framing). It took me ages to list these because I didn’t want to let them go. But it’s time to find them good homes!

Work is available in my shop.

Another Fringe Supply Co. Collaboration

Fringe Supply Co. Field Bag hand printed by Jen Hewett

In 2014 and 2015, I created five limited-edition project bags for Fringe Supply Co. It was a fun, year-long collaboration, and Karen (Fringe’s owner) and I tried to figure out other ways to work together.

Then, along came Fringe’s incredibly popular Field Bags. We decided that I would print the blank, cut canvas for the bags using my Mountains/Clouds print (you may remember the preview I shared here). I printed enough fabric for 70 bags, sent them to Karen (who responded, “They were so beautiful I gasped when I opened the package”). Karen had them sewn by her manufacturing team, and then we launched the finished bags into the world, notifying our respective newsletter subscribers first.

And all 70 sold out in four hours.

We’ll be working on something else in the later part of the year. We’ll probably offer it to our newsletter subscribers first. If you’d like to have first dibs on it (as well as be notified when I add new classes or launch new products), please sign up for my newsletter.

With that, I’m off to Southern California to teach at Superbuzzy!
