Somehow we've found ourselves in the midst of autumn. There is so much natural beauty to be discovered this time of year and I plan to tap into it for my creative process, but I hope I'm not alone when I say summer went way too fast.
As far as September, well, it was full of adjustments, emotions, and excitement as we moved my oldest son back to U of M and helped my middle son start to his senior year. With my youngest son, now a high school sophomore, I am just trying to soak up every minute with my family - and keep our days filled with adventure, intention, and inspiration.
No matter what hat you're wearing, life seems to be moving along and standing still at the same time these days. As a business owner, I owe you all a big thank you from the bottom of my heart for your continued support of my small but mighty company. I truly appreciate you for showing up, stopping in, and supporting our mission to create small-batch organic textiles & home goods that are all beauty and no burden. We know you have choices and it means the world to us that we are your first stop whether in the shop or online.
If you have visited the shop lately, you know I have an amazing staff that loves to help out and of course play around with color and texture! We really do have a lot of fun and enjoy creating combinations that flow nicely throughout the seasons.
Fiber Art Update
As you probably noticed, there have been a few changes over the last year that build on the brand that you have come to count on. It's been a bit of a paddle to get to the point to really dig in and chat about the work we are doing but it is our top priority these next few months.
With any growth comes pivoting to make everything work well, so sadly we have decided to discontinue the fiber art section (macrame cord, wool roving, looms and odds and ends). So, please stop in soon if you would like to stock up.
While we love the texture and creativity it offers, it is very difficult to keep a wide range of quality products active at all times. We will be focusing on our sewing section with hard to find sustainable quality fabrics as well as thoughtful notions.
Phasing Out Linen Rentals
In addition, we are closing our linen rental program. With the rising costs of professional cleaning and my small but mighty staff, keeping track of so many parts of the company was not working out. The linens that have only been rented once or twice are deeply discounted for a wonderful sustainable find. Stop in to check them out while they last.
New Release! Original Hand Printed Collection
Onto the exciting part! Finally after over a year of design, development and delays I am thrilled to finally offer our own hand printed pattern collection on our home goods. We couldn't be introducing these limited collections at a better time than the fall when you are starting to think about making your home cozy for the months ahead.
These original patterns are hand printed in the USA on the highest quality European linen. Wait it gets better - I collaborated with the amazing, talented, heart of gold Em Randall on a few designs! It was a joy working with someone that has a calm way about pivoting when it doesn't feel right and slowing down to make it so.
In a world of fast fabric and printing it was a pleasure to know we are offering not only quality fabric but an age old hand printing method that is true craftsmanship and talent above and beyond our design. I hope that you enjoy these prints and I promise to keep building from here.
