Welcome to our new Decorator!

Welcome to Lydia Mumford, of Lydia's Daily Thread, who will be decorating the space for DISHES 2016! We're excited to have her join the team and can't wait to see what she comes up with. Lydia spent half of the 80's and all of the 90's cozied up in a $1 house in Syracuse's Southside, wrapped in fairy-tale daydreams, hand-knit sweaters, and the rich love of her dear parents and two sisters. She spent years styling her dolls and later herself from her mother's attic textile trove, and working with her craftsman father in the basement woodshop. She has always been fascinated by transforming raw materials into finished objects.

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!
