Last winter we made plans to join Claus Jahnke for show at the Jewish Museum in Vienna. Historical clothing from Claus Jahnke’s collection of Austrian Jewish pre-war clothing were included in the display.
The photos I took of his collection that were used in the display were also used in the catalog Buy From Jews! Story of a Viennese store culture
The opening night was special with many of Claus' friends from around the world. Plus the President and Vice President of Austria.

Our Social Fabric (OSF) is a textile recycling initiative that has been in operation since 2009. In October 2015 we closed our storefront on Hastings Street and prepared to re-locate with our non-profit partners, Common Thread and Craftworks.
OSF receives donations of textiles, fabric left and sewing related supplies from the film industry, theatre, manufacturing, estate closures together with home sewers and artists. Our team of volunteers sort through the donations and offer them back to the community at drastically reduced prices. Our goal is to keep textiles out of the landfill and into the hands of crafters, sewers and artists in our community.

London's highest and best view is situated at the top of The Shard, on floors 68 and 69. It’s always great to visit Elisabeth and all my favourite places in London.

It was great to meet up with Larry Jordan at the BVExpo in London. Larry is my original online Final Cut teacher courtesy of www.Lynda.com. I first met Larry in person when I volunteered for his NAB booth to go out and find stories. It was the beginning of meeting some great friends at the National Association of Broadcasters Show.

I love the challenge of 'packing right.' To me every trip is a chance to do pack the most efficient way I should. The right amount of clothes, snacks, camera gear... I never get it quite right.
