Settling In

I'm weaving in our new space! Feels good to treadle a loom
again even though we're still in unpacking mode. Where did I pack
the tape measures??

Schuyler walks over from the High School after Regents exams to
help unpack yarns and wash windows. What a good son!
Notice the rainbow effect of the yarn shelf...

Trying to get a good "After" shot, not quite there yet till the porch gets finished up. But we're making progress. The final stages just seem to crawl....we're so ready to be done with this project and get back to work!!

Here's our finished ramp- waiting now for another concrete pour for steps, then metal railings will be installed. It was nice to have the ramp for the load-in with 500 lb. looms on dollies.

We've Moved!! By June 1st, all the heavy looms, sewing machines, and equipment gets moved in. Richard and I and many van/trailer loads finish the job 3 days later. How did we ever accumulate so much stuff in 8 short years?!?

Gary finishes up the wood trim end of May. We love the accent blocks at the corner with contrast grain. This is the front gallery space which will feature our clothing and accessories. We'll display some knockout pieces in the triple window for all the diners at The Local across the street to notice!

Wainscotting in the back cutting room, salvaged wood from 19th century buildings. We'll put a light coat of poly sealer on it. I think this is going to be my favorite room because of the north light and all the windows....
