bread winner

It was a proud and happy moment when I delivered close to 100 of these tote bags to Skowhegan, Maine earlier this week. These totes were created especially for the Maine Grain Alliance's annual Kneading Conference which kicks off today in Skowhegan, Maine. 

I've been recycling King Arthur Flour bags into totes for a while now (read more here), so when I heard that they were again sponsoring the Kneading Conference and the Maine Artisan Bread Fair - which wraps up this 3-day event on Saturday - I knew I had to come up with something special for the occasion!
The custom graphic (created by yours truly!) was screen printed on the totes by Beth Burke who owns Custom Cottons in Sedgwick, Maine. Beth opened her shop a few months ago and has been going non-stop ever since! And I can see why - she's great to work with, creative, and FAST! Not to mention she does beautiful work!
To get your very own limited edition 2011 Kneading Conference tote bag, stop by the conference headquarters at the Skowhegan Fairgrounds July 28-30. They'll be for sale during the conference and at the Artisan Bread Fair (same location). Hope to see you there!


  1. Wonderful graphic for those totes! Congrats! You are forming perfect partnerships for your exciting ventures. I really enjoyed reading about the King Arthur flour bags too! ~Lili

  2. I agree - a perfect partnership! And such a great conference and fair. I think it resembles the Common Ground Fair when it first started, and I have a feeling it will gain the same type of momentum.
