Under Kate's feet is a carpet, so she can be shoeless all day.
Our dear long-time fan Janet F. has happily found her next acquisition.

Weathering the Storm

  • The Three Rivers Arts Festival in Pittsburgh in June 2004 had the stormiest weather in memory and inspired this little poem about the plight of outdoor art exhibits.
  • The Boca Raton Arts Festival in Boca Raton, Florida, in January 2010 had the coldest weather in decades, with icy rain and nasty winds. It inspired this little verse.
  • Coconut Point, Florida, in 2010 greeted us with gale-force winds during set-up. It went like this: Battling the Wind.
  • Amish Acres in Nappanee, Indiana, in June 2012 went from idyllic to their worst storm in 40 years within an hour. Here are some photos.
  • Wayzata, Minnesota, in June 2013 had a horrendous string of storms starting Friday evening, with the town totally blacked out from power failures. The show was canceled. Here are some verses recounting the event.

Special Commemorative Puzzles

  • Maryland Renaissance Festival's 35th Anniversary, 2011—Our 35-ball Giant Pyramid was the perfect gift, with a special base and Award of Appreciation for Jules Smith and the Festival staff.

  • Maryland Renaissance Festival's 25th Anniversary, 2001—This was the first use of our Poly-5 puzzle as an anniversary design. We presented the puzzle, with silver-like frame and numbers, to Jules Smith, general manager of the Festival.

  • Three Rivers Arts Festival's 50th Anniversary, 2009— Kate designed a special version of our popular Poly-5 puzzle as a golden anniversary commemorative for Pittsburgh's biggest show and presented it as a gift to the organizers.

  • Syracuse Arts & Crafts Festival's 40th Anniversary, 2010 — Our versatile Poly-5 set got a pearlized "40" in a special matching frame. One copy was presented as a gift to the organizers. The rest of this very limited edition sold out to local fans of the show.

  • Greensboro Craftsmen's Christmas Classic Crafts Festival's 40th Anniversary, 2013 — Our popular Poly-5 set has a frosted metallic blue "40" in a special matching frame and was presented as a token of appreciation to the organizers, Clyde and Tami Gilmore. We've been in their shows for 30 years.

  • OHIO 4x4 Puzzle — designed for our Cleveland shows in 2010, the letters O-H-I-O make for a sudoku-like challenge in four colors, plus a sliding block puzzle. It's cool that all four letters are symmetrical and the same upside-down, too. Print it and play.

  • Berkshire 9x9 Puzzle — was designed for the 10th Annual Berkshires Art Festival in July 2011. The largest of our sudoku/sliding puzzles, it has 9 colors and 9 letters to print out, cut out and solve.

  • Chicago 7x7 Puzzle — was printed for the North Michigan Avenue's great 20th annual art festival. You're invited to print it out for yourself and solve its sudoku/sliding block puzzles.

  • Wyandotte 50th Street Art Fair — inspired the design of a special 5x5 "50" puzzle that combines a sudoku-like arrangement with a sliding action. Print it, cut out the numbers, and play.

Artist's Statement
Art shows like to have an artist's mission statement posted somewhere in the booth. Here is a one-page statement by Kate about her work that you can print out and share, if you wish:
