Some of you may already know I have another Etsy shop, ArtisMagistra, where I sell hand dyed silks that are made in a studio in my town. I spoke with the artist herself yesterday (who prefers that I do not mention her label as it is rather exclusive) while she was loading up her old studio into a moving van and relocating to a shiny new studio in another part of town. This means that she has TONS of gorgeous silks for me to list in the ArtisMagistra shop, and I will get that moving in early June after things settle down a bit.
Fanime is nearly here, then I have a local Japanese-themed fundraiser for a local high school where I will be presenting a kimono fashion show, then I will take a day off BY MYSELF thankyouverymuch to recoup a bit. I’m heading up to my absolutely favorite relaxation spot, Breitenbush Hot Springs. Ahhhhhhhhhh….. So now you know that if I’m not here blogging, I’m off doing something else. As it should be.
Other upcoming events for the summer include KimonoMomo’s second annual kimono fashion show at SakéOne in Forest Grove, Oregon’s wine country outside of Portland. Last year was fun, and this year’s show will be even better. Please join us on July 26 for live music, saké tasting, and beautiful kimono. Other events will be announced here as they are scheduled.
