Thy Doan Book Signing

September 23, 2017

Grab your best calligraphy pen to have Thy Doan sign her wonderful book on hand lettering! Thy is a local designer and letterer transplanted from the west coast who’s love of hand-lettering developed while working as a chalkboard/sign artist at Whole Foods Market.  Thy is as endearing as in this pic, and will give demos and chat as much as you want about the joys of putting pen to paper. Watch this space for the final date. See more here at

Brodo (Italian for broth) is more intensely flavorful, great to drink, and so good for you. There’ll be copius wine, lots of broth and a grand ‘ol time around my kitchen table.

Byrd Swift’s Paintings

We had a wonderful reception to celebrate the opening of PATCH NYC’s new showroom where they presented their latest work alongside the paintings of Byrd Swift. “Not only was Byrd Swift a great friend she was also a great artist  and her paintings have been a huge source of inspiration.” It was a rare opportunity for those who followed Byrd’s career to see her remaining paintings in the studio building where she once worked. We are loathe to put them back into storage and would like to make them available to show by appointment. Please contact us if you would like a private viewing…. nothing would make us happier!


We would be pleased to describe everything in detail... please call 617.323.4301
