About the Artists:  Ari Hest

Ari Hest

Ari Hest creates a non-typical collection of tracks that ultimately form a cohesive narrative. With songs of sadness and resignation giving way to lucidity and catharsis, Hest's introspection and intelligence are on display, creating moments of magic within his poetic, spare lyrics and backing them up with his ear for haunting melodies.

Hest conceived half of his latest album 'Shouts and Whispers' as an acoustic set, while the other half took shape via keyboards, as he explains below. 'Shouts and Whispers' begins with the swirling, hypnotic 'Harvest', soon followed by a centerpiece track, the stunning, understated 'Into the Empty White'. 'How We'll Always Be' is perhaps a declaration of giving up the fight, and the melancholy 'No One Can Stay' has an elegant darkness. There's a glimmer of hope within 'Bona Fide', and finally a cathartic yowl as 'After The Thunder' builds to its crescendo.

Finch Sewing Studio – Sip and Sew

Local Artisans Team Up – Sewing Under the Influence!

Finch Sewing StudioCome hang out at one of Loudoun’s finest establishments! Each location is hand picked and coordinated by Nicole for an optimally fun sewcial.

We’ll be sipping in style at the beautiful Catoctin Creek Distilling Company in Purcellville, Va. This time, we'll be learning to crochet these adorable little coin purses. We'll provide the yarn and wooden bead, and we'll have crochet hooks available for purchase at the event. Fill your little pouch with change or a gift card- whatever your pleasure, you'll be sure to keep this special little piece forever (and as quick as it is to crochet, you'll be making these for all your bestest friends too)!

Let me tell you about Catoctin Creek: With one whole wall of windows, we’ll be sure to have plenty of beautiful light for a very cool project. Catoctin Creek® Distilling Company was founded by Becky and Scott Harris in 2009 as the first legal distillery in Loudoun County since before Prohibition. Catoctin Creek is all about high quality food and spirits. Organic means higher quality: grain and fruit, sourced locally when possible, free of pesticides and chemical additives that would come through in the spirits produced. Tastings of their finest concoctions will be available to us all evening, and everyone is welcome to buy bottles to bring home to the mister as well (let’s be honest, it’s really for me… ). :) 120 W. Main St. Purcellville, Virginia Catoctin Creek carries a gorgeous selection of handmade chocolate truffles, but no other food. Plan to eat before! Come stitch with us!
