New crafts magazine debuts in Baltimore

A glossy new magazine for collectors of contemporary crafts premieres this month. AmericanStyle, published in Baltimore, features trends, profiles, events calendars and gallery listings for anyone interested in fine crafts. The magazine will come out twice a year; you can buy the fall/winter issue at bookstores and craft galleries for $7.

For old-house fans

If you're working on an old house, this is a not-to-be-missed event: the Maryland Association of Historic District Commissions holding a Renovator's Roundtable Saturday. Experts will talk about how to identify old house problems, give money-saving tips for dealing with them and discuss maintenance, repair and rehabbing. At the end of the day there will be a panel dealing with individual questions.

The workshop will be held from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the OrcharStreet Church at 510 Orchard St. The cost is $20, and reservations are required. Call (410) 396-4866.

Twigs n' Petals grow

Twigs n' Petals has just opened a full-service florist shop at 100 Water St., (410) 727-3515. (It's also located at the glass kiosk in Charles Plaza.) You can get everything from plants to balloons and gift and fruit baskets. Twigs n' Petals specializes in European floral design, with loose and airy arrangements; but more formal compositions are also available. Hours are Monday to Thursday, 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., and Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.

Tiny rooms, big appeal

These are rooms that will delight everyone, no matter what your age: 15 marvelous miniatures that will be auctioned off at the Make a Little Room benefit for the YWCA's Corner House Shelters. These tiny room boxes, created by local interior designers, architects and miniaturists, are on display at the Gallery in the Inner Harbor until next Friday.

The auction, including a reception and show, will be held Saturday from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Gaines McHale Antiques, 836 Leadenhall St. Admission is $25 a person. For more information, call (410) 685-1460, Ext. 264.
