Slowly getting back on track, planning new classes and ordering more beautiful fabrics.
Several times it has been said to me “you really need an assistant” and I know it’s true. Not sure how to go about this other than posting an ad on craigslist–which has worked in the past (thank you, Jacob!)–but I certainly could use a part-time, able bodied and skilled assistant to help me keep things all together and sorted out. I still have heaps of photos and information to write about for my indigo feature, new yukata cotton bolts from Japan, piles of kimono, and other items that have yet to make it into the Etsy shop.
Some days I wonder if I need someone to STOP me from buying more stock! Well, maybe not.
Several beautiful new and vintage fabrics will be listed in the shop later today and tomorrow including shibori. In the meantime, a question: Would you be interested in hand dyed 43″ wide cotton yardage from Japan at $40 a yard?
It’s a little more high end than I usually carry, but it is beautiful and I’d love to have it in the shop if people will buy it. This fabric is available in black, indigo, brown or red. Post your feedback and next week (April 14, 2010) I’ll pick two people at random to receive a small bundle of indigo fabrics.
