Announcement   The Sarah Elizabeth Shop has been producing original designed, block printed fabric and other items on a Historic Acorn Press in Rockport, Massachusetts since 1974! Block printing on fabric has been a tradition here since the late 1930's. The Shop's namesake, Sarah Elizabeth Holloran was a member of the design group "The Folly Cove Designers" whose block printed designs were nationally renowned and still widely collected today. Isabel Natti was the vivacious, dynamic apprentice designer who worked along side Sarah Elizabeth until her death in 2009. Isabel continued designing and printing her own work as well as Sarah Elizabeth's until her own death in 2011. Now Julia Garrison, a local painter and fabric artist, continues the tradition of offering original designed block printed fabric of her own as well as of the women who inspired her and taught her how to print. Love of art and nature and appreciation of those who came before inspire timeless graphic design that you can enjoy everyday!
I print on 100% linen and or cotton in a smattering of select colorways from the blocks of Sarah Elizabeth Holloran, Isabel Natti and my own. Those blocks that are too old and fragile to put through the Acorn Press are converted to silkscreens and offered on T-shirts and totes. Place mats, runners, hangings and paper are real block prints. I do all the blockprinting on the Antique Acorn press that had been used by the Folly Cove Designers in their retail barn in Lanesville. My inks are the same formula used by the Folly Cove Designers intended for continued wash and fade resistance. I pride myself in using only local seamstresses for the products I create.
I welcome special orders and color requests for purchases over $75
(I ship within 7 days but if you would like expediated shipping, please contact me immediately and I will set that up for you.)

Purchased this as a birthday gift to go with the placements bought previously. The colors are vibrant and the design is gorgeous. Truly a vintage and unique feel that is hard to find in these days of mass production. I would recommend these products to anyone. The shop owner Julia was quick to respond and very helpful as we figured out the right length, color, etc. Can't say enough good things about this shop and their offerings. Thanks again.

The Sarah Elizabeth Shop is devoted to the preservation and celebration of the native craft of Block printing on Cape Ann, Massachusetts. I print the work of myself and the two women who had up until 2011 carried on the tradition of block printed graphic design on Cape Ann, Isabel Natti and Sarah Elizabeth Holloran. My aim is to bring attention to the fine art craft of block printing in this area and encourage young and old to fill their lives with beauty and soul.
