What a title......but it is a well deserved one as we just signed the lease on a big, bright and new studio space and within a week or so the Handiquilter truck will be stopping by with something special for me! Yes people, you heard me right! Lookee, lookee......right here.....
Fantastic, is it not? So I have a big learning curve ahead! Exciting beyond belief! I have 6 quilt tops ready, at least 6 more almost ready, and 6 million in my head waiting for the long arm machine adventure!
The new studio space is in the former Columbia Woolen Mills under the St. John's Bridge. A few years ago, this whole mega structure was converted to artist and small business rental spaces. There are many different unit sizes available....clean, bright, safe, utilities included, free parking, cafe and "soon to open" brew pub onsite. Another plus factor is that it is within walking distance of our house. The new space is about 1000 square feet of delicious emptiness right now but it will soon be filled with thread, fabric, comfy chairs, music, stocked mini frig, cutting table, design walls, sewing machine and of course my new
Handiquilter Fusion long arm quilting machine.
I am so jazzed!
I am so excited!
I want to invite all my friends and the Portland Modern Quilt Guild members to come by for a visit! Bring your latest quilt in process and sew on my spare sewing machine which will be waiting just for you. Really!
Here's to a Happy, Happy, Happy, Happy New Year!
Time to get your sew on!
