Why the Scarf Moment? Despite Global Warming winter is still cold, and we all want to look good and stay warm. And these scarves are a perfect vehicle for recycling and reusing. They are made from vintage fabrics and some are even repurposed from vintage clothing. I back the vintage fabrics with new silk, wool, cotton and linen. My scarves are great for people who are wool sensitive since the wool scarves have a layer of silk or cotton on the reverse. The Scarf Moment is warmth with style.

Stripes on stars, for 2012
For the Winter 2012 season I've been making lots of striped scarves. Of course, whatever I happen to make is by chance, since most of the fabric I use for scarves is vintage: found at estate sales and thrift shops. But the universe has brought me lots of stripes this season. This one is a cotton in (fewer than fifty) shades of grey and red. I made a lightweight scarf for fall or spring by backing it with black linen. Modeled by gorgeous star Jillian King, still looking as good as when I met her, oh, let's just say a few years ago.
