The Cottage Studio's new enterance
This year there have been many changes and there are more to come! Both the Cottage and the Workshop have had many changes. I have after 13 years been told I can no longer sell out of the small cottage. Well what's a girl to do? Comply with the wishes and move along. So now I have a new location next door. The same whimsy is still there, when you visit you will see many changes, but they are all for the good. I have built a new front porch so I can greet you properly before you enter. I have a workshop inside where I do my painting, and a gallery room so you can view my artwork. And some really cool news, I am now doing fashion items, Yeap FASHION ITEMS, I am starting yet another new venture. I have turned the small cottage into a fiber worshop. I will be spinning my own yarns from my own cottage dyed fibers. Some purchased locally (Alpaca) some purchased as of now on the internet (Merino Wool) Hopefully I can find some local Wools, which you will be able to purchase for your knitting, felting and crafting ventures. I will be making scarves, purses, shawls etc. which will also be for sale, keep it in mind for the Holidays. I am very excited! Today my new spinning wheel is being delivered, Yea! I will try and keep you up to date on the venture, you can learn along with me. Stay dry and warm! Happy new ventures to all!
