Event Details

Join us for a special December First Friday from 5-8pm at the shop as we host a festive Holiday Fair featuring local artists and crafters Emily Johnston / Mle Jay, Jessica Reininger / My Restless Art, and Denise Rowcroft / Lost and Found Art!

We’ll also be hosting Pacific Northwest indie-dyer Sugarplum Circus. Meet Jensen, the creative genius behind this colorful yarn brand, and discover your favorite new skeins during our two-day Pop-Up Shop.

Emily (Mle) Johnston (Jay) is the artist behind bright, mountainy paintings and funky, colorful earrings. When Emily isn’t painting, she loves to explore, hike mountains, and visit new places. Audio books and knitting – and of course her sweet new baby girl – are her jam!

Blessed with a limitless imagination, Jessica Reininger creates unique pottery pieces that are both beautiful and functional. Working out of her studio in the expansive Oregon Outback landscape, she crafts wholly unique artisan collections of cups, bowls, dishes and her signature Wanderware — no two pieces are ever the same.
Jessica was the first ever pottery major at Northwest Nazarene University in Idaho, which helped in establishing that program. Her other talents include knitting, yarn-dyeing, weaving, and painting. A night owl, a chatter, a reader and an extroverted introvert, Jessica loves food, drink, water, hot springs, hiking, biking and sunshine.

By day, Denise Rowcroft is Program Manager for the School Gardens program with The Environmental Center. The Kansas Avenue Learning Garden?That’s Denise’s handiwork, along with the Garden for Every School program. Denise has a deep interest in being resourceful over buying new. When she’s not busy being a mom, she’s skiing, floating a river, or creating jewelry and art from interesting upcycled materials at Lost and Found Art.
Come enjoy a beautiful evening in the Bend Central District to shop some ridiculously colorful yarn, support local art, and check off that holiday shopping list, all at the same time. Other fabulous Bend Central District small businesses open from 5-8pm include Big Story Books & Movies, BOL & Gordon Piano Co., El Taquero, 541 Trends, Humm Taproom, Manzanita Grill, Open Space Event Studio, Oregon Spirit Distillers and Rose Tree Cottage Gift Shop.
