Lydia still lives in Syracuse, in a little city bungalow with her husband and three kids. They always have a project (or a hundred!) to keep them entertained and now she's added DISHES to the list! Lydia works from home designing and creating finely-crafted textile items for Lydia's Daily Thread. She is inspired by theater, picture books, materials, the natural world, and the imaginations of children. Check out some of the amazing costumes she's created, or the many other textile designs on her facebook page. We know it's going to be a lot of fun working with her on the upcoming dinner!
