My Esty Shop Reboot

I started my Esty shop years and years ago, maybe in 2010. There was something so exciting in seeing my hand felted, resist dyed arts felt and my handmade books all lined up on my home shop page. And of course it was exciting to start selling to folks who appreciated my work. But I also was a teacher of felting, dyeing and bookmaking and traveled throughout the states, Canada, Europe and even Australia. In the beginning it was exciting and airlines were great adventures. I also did shows mostly on the East Coast selling felt in various formats and more recently the books. But I got tired and could not keep up with my Esty shop and finally just put it on vacation.

I live and work by myself and my cat was not any help at all. I finally decided after 35 years to stop flying all over the place to teach, hauling suitcases and boxes and rusty bits up and down stairs and in and out of airports. So last year 2019 was pretty much my last away teaching. I still teach small classes here at my studio in Asheville, NC and also at a few places close enough that I can throw everything I need into my car and drive two or three hours. But mostly I have a lot more free time now to be designing books and spending time in the dye kitchen. I'm very excited about being about to re-open my Esty Shop and renew old friendships and make new ones.
