Well, we’re pretty far away from the new shop being actually finished, but I suppose we’ll open anyway. We can cut fabric, so . . . .
You guys have been incredibly patient, so I’m hoping you’ll also be tolerant of things disheveled and un-cute until a later date. We will have a big party once [...]
Laying the floor has been an interesting challenge. I’ve done it a couple of times before, but not this particular ‘floating’ style.
I listened to all the research about underlayments, but then wasn’t happy with the uneveness once a good chunk was down, so we scrapped it and started again – ugh.
Today, I’m down to the [...]
We’ve had some road blocks. There’s some core issues with the new space – electrical and plumbing – that have nothing to do with us. They’ve slowed down the process quite a bit, but I’m crossing my fingers they will be resolved soon. I guess I should have calculated more buffer time for this type [...]

While we will miss certain aspects of our current location, we just want to be more visible and accessible to you guys. Often enough, people from our own neighborhood will [...]
We just launched our new website – and, what an experience it has been!
First, I’d like to give props to Tony Piscotti and Emily Johnson who designed our original website.
7 years ago I never dreamed how important a website would be for us. Tony and Emily, a web designer and graphic designer/illustrator respectively, offered to [...]
