A Headbands Mention

December 14, 2010 Leave a comment

We were excited to read a blog entry by the smallest forest, on how she has put Oak Knoll’s book, Headbands: How to Work Them, to great use. With her creative eye for design and color, in combination with help from our book, she has created some beautiful headband designs. We were also excited to read the kind words she had about our book.

the pages are packed with techniques, tricks, diagrams, long paragraphs of erudition—the sort of information that a devoted craftsperson can sink her teeth into and take sustenance from!

Thank you so much, the smallest forest! Click here to follow her on her blog, and enjoy the photographs of her creations.

Intern Danielle says goodbye

December 8, 2010 Leave a comment

The beginning of the semester led me to Oak Knoll and now the end has come to sweep me away. As I write this blog post, I’m only two days away from my last day at Oak Knoll and my last day of classes, a month away from the University of Delaware Winter Commencement, and a month and a day away from moving across the country.

While I’m in the middle of preparing for finals, the holidays, graduation, and rushing to pack my entire life into a few boxes, don’t think for a second that I will forget about everyone at Oak Knoll. You all have made my first workplace experience a pleasure. Thank you for being so welcoming and providing me with experience in editing, InDesign, Photoshop, and so many of the useful skills I will need as a professional writer. Thanks to you, I now have confidence in my Tacoma, Washington job hunt.

I wrote in my first blog post, “I am sure Oak Knoll has a great deal of pleasant surprises and learning experiences in store for me, and I am sure that I will take in and come to love every single one,” and it’s no surprise that Oak Knoll did not let me down.

Thank you again, and I wish the very best for Oak Knoll, its wonderful employees, and inspiring book collection.

Danielle, Intern
