It is official. 2016 has been, for me, the Year of Change. In January, I moved my working space from our home to a large studio in a local mill building. In March, I opened a small Market in the front of the studio. In May, I launched a magazine (Making). In July, my family moved a couple towns over to a new house. Now, in the spirit of all this change, I have decided to close my studio shop. This may seem sudden but ever since I released the magazine, the Market has not gotten the energy it deserves and needs. So, while not only is this year about change, it is also about making good choices that feel right for my family and my work.
Though the shop doors are now closed, please come visit me at the Squam Art Fair on September 17th! I will be selling off some goods at my table there. And, I am tinkering with the idea of having a party at my studio later this year to celebrate the first two issues of Making.
I am excited to be able to fully focus on Making No. 2 / FAUNA! I am in the thick of working on this next issue and am loving all the projects that are rolling in. I truly want this magazine to be the best it can be and having more time will help me get it there. Also, I have plans to grow a small online Making Market with some kits and other goodies! Stay tuned...
Thank you to everyone who has visited Madder Market this year! I am grateful for your kindness and support.
