Better and better

I did promise you some better photos. After our opening day on December 8th the showroom has continued to evolve.

There is still a list of silly little renovation tasks to complete and more machinery to move down, but I love that as you wander through the door a large window affords you a peek into my workroom

I was overcome with an incredible sense of peace as I worked away last Saturday.  This space is filled with light and the sounds of the trees swishing in the wind and city noises beyond.  I like that this little place is tucked away, but still in touch with 'the hustle and the bustle'.
I can't wait to set up my industrial machinery, but for now I'm making do with a more portable option; cutting in the studio and doing more major sewing runs at home.  Its a juggle and I look forward to the day when everything is in one place!

This coming Friday and Saturday I shall be open 10-4 as usual.  If you can't face the mall you might want to wander around the studio...

Then will be closed for a little break over the Christmas/New Year period.  I shall reopen on January 4th 2013.

A joyful Christmas to you and yours.  Thank you for all your support in 2012.  2013 will bring some really exciting developments for the Cottage.  I have ideas to get a Designer's Market in the space, exhibitions by local designers and artists, musical and visual performances.  This is only the beginning friends....
