Squshies Survey and Ontario Art Walk

We're always trying to make the Squshies better and we thought one of the best ways to do that is to find out more about YOU. So we've put together a survey!

To thank you for your efforts in filling out our survey, we’re throwing in a coupon code for purchases in August, which you can find at the end of the survey.

Ontario Art Walk and Loft Tour

What a whirlwind of a weekend! We were at Odd Nights at the Autry National Center on Friday evening. On Saturday we were at the Ontario Art Walk and Loft Tour. This was extra special event for us because it was the first time the Art Walk has taken place while we've been in our new space.

Squshies Events - Patchwork Show and Designer Con

Hard to believe that October is more than halfway over. I don't know about you but this month feels like it has been speeding by! Maybe it has something to do with the busy November we've got coming up!

We are going to be at a few really great events next month. Here's the info and maps for each:

Felt Animal Prints and Upcoming Events

We've made a new addition to the shop lately, our felt animals as prints! 
Hot Air Balloon Adventure Print
We've been experimenting with making bigger and more elaborate pieces. The  hot air balloon print with Reginald and Beauregard, pictured above, is from a shadowbox we recently made. The image in the shadowbox was made just like all of our ornaments. Every piece was hand cut and  then hand stitched. You may have spotted it on our recent tables at Wondercon and the Long Beach Patchwork show.

Patchwork Show - Long Beach

Last Sunday we were at the Long Beach Patchwork Show. Here is a quick picture of Jason with our display before the show started. Actually my only picture from the day. I never think to take pictures after an event starts. We actually ended up having the table covered in felt critters before the day was over as people asked to see critters that we didn't have room to hang on the display.

Squshies at Wondercon Recap!

We were at Wondercon this year for the very first time! It was amazing! Thank you so much to everyone who came out to support us and stop by our table.
Felicia Day and Captain Hippo
The whole weekend was so fun and exciting, but by far the coolest thing that happened all weekend...Felicia Day visited our table in Artists' Alley!
We actually spent the night before Wondercon watching the 5th season of The Guild, where they go to the gaming convention, so it made the whole experience even more surreal.
Felicia Day and Captain Hippo
Not only did she visit our table and was super nice, she also bought one of our special Wondercon cosplay Beauregards, Captain Hippo! If that wasn't awesome enough, she also included Captain Hippo in her Wondercon video!
Sorry. Totally geeked out a bit there, but so awesome!  This was my very first experience with a comic book convention or even a show of this size. If  you've ever been to an event like this you know how crazy and full of great stuff they are. It is really exciting and a honor to have been noticed among all the awesome!
squshies wondercon table
This was our table at Wondercon. We changed it up a bit over the weekend, but this was basically it.  I spent almost the whole time behind the table, except of course for the one picture I took all weekend.
It was all very overwhelming! There was so much to see at Wondercon. I spent the first few minutes of the last day quickly walking through all of Artists' Alley and Small Press trying to see some of the amazing artists that were there. 
Seeing all of the costumes was also a blast! One of my favorites of the weekend was a WALL-E cosplay. Very creative! I wish I'd thought to take a picture.
We had so much fun and if possible we hope to be at Wondercon again next year.
