I’ve joined #artistsupportpledge

...and will happily support other artists!

Due to the COVID19 pandemic, many artists around the world have found themselves without work, teaching, technical support, gallery work, exhibitions and sales have disappeared. In an attempt to help alleviate some of this stress @matthewburrowsstudio has instigated the #artistsupportpledge The concept is a simple one. You post images of your work to sell for no more than $200 each (not including shipping). Every time you reach $1000 of sales you pledge to buy another artist’s work for $200.

Uniquely One of a Mug Mats are hooked with 100% new wool, which I over-dyed with my original recipes. I professionally finish my mats by binding them with my durable, hand-dyed rug yarn or wool strips, sewing on cotton twill tape and a cotton label...signed and dated.

Matched with a hand stitched wool appliqué tea cozy to cover your mug while brewing will keep your cup HOT! Truly one of a kind...I hand cut wool and stitch these cozies to compliment my hooked mug mats.

Measuring 6" to 7” in diameter these hooked mats are perfect for under a mug of your favorite beverage! Cozies measure 8" w x 6" h and expand to fit a variety or mugs, cups and small teapots. $65.00 set + $5.00 shipping

If you are interested in purchasing any of my work...I'll be posting it here, in the Etsy shop, on Facebook and Instagram.
If you have questions, please don't hesitate to contact me
