    Stacey Lee Webber at the 2017 PMA Craft Show
    So this is what's happening at the Globe Dye Works. "I am often inspired by my environment," she says. "Currently the Frankford neighborhood of Philadelphia in the Globe Dye Works building [is inspiring me]. The row housing, electric wires dangling, trash on the street are all sources of inspiration."

Skateboard Company Pays it Forward

A few years ago, after passing the skateboard park at Carmella Playground for the 1,000th time, I stopped by there to take some pictures.  It was no big deal but I ended up staying two hours, watching the kids do their thing.  They are the best of the lot, honing their skills there rather than down at Love Park.  It was news to me, but this is a serious sport and some of our local guys, John Valentin, is right up there with the best.
