I can move any (fabric) mountain

January 31, 2012

It’s moving day!

A little Shamen for your listening pleasure….


Of course I don’t have enough boxes, so each van load I have to unpack all the boxes and throw their contents up into the shelves. I started the day being very organized, but as we moved more and more it got a little more chaotic!



It’s amazing how quickly you can fill a space up!



I’ve got ALOT or organizing to do!



Tulle box! Some of Eric’s midday moving humor!



Since my shop is in the middle of a T intersection at a traffic light, there is no way to pull over in front of the store. Eric figured out that our van would *just* fit on the sidewalk. We could only unload through the sliding door though, we made a bit of a spectacle of ourselves. Oh well, life in a small town!



And finally…. the industrials. Upon our super smart friend Tom’s suggestion, Eric made a dolly to put the machines on. So.Much.Easier. than last time!

I like to surround myself with smart handy people! Makes moving a breeze! Heh. Now if only I was rich! I could have paid someone else to do all of this!!



Bye Bye old studio!



I will miss my view!!




She’s So Pretty is moving!

November 6, 2011


I know! I have been a very bad blogger girl. So many exciting things have happened this year, and I have been such a slacker about documenting it! Hopefully in the next few months I will be able to take a breath, and get everyone caught up on what is going on.
On top of everything else, I am moving my studio! I am leaving the one bedroom apartment I am currently working in and heading to an empty retail space in downtown Lonaconing.
The shop needs work. When I say work, I mean more than just a coat of paint and display demo. The building needs heat and water service installed, a crazy amount of cleaning and a bit of heavy lifting. BUT…. I think by the time my husband and I are done with it, we will have crafted an awesome creative space. A space that people will be able to stop in and see what I am up to. A space that a spool of thread, elastic and needles can be purchased. A space that you can possible take sewing lessons, or teach someone else your craftiness. I am pretty excited about our new endeavor. I will be sure to keep everyone updated with our progress!
