around the studio

posted in: infusion news | 6

I realized I haven’t mentioned here yet that the shop is closed. The etsy shop is closed for a bit, while I catch up on my work. The shop has been a fantastically busy place this year! I have felt behind for the past few weeks/months, so in fairness to my own well-being, and in respect for my patient customers, I will clean the slate and reopen with a fresh start. There will be some new items available when I reopen as well. I am always so excited to create new work, and right now is definitely no exception.

So what’s been going on in the studio recently…

+ Last week my friend and assistant Amber came down to work with me, and we assembled close to 30 bag linings. I am hoping that I’ll be able to get quite a ways closer to completion this week with those on hand.

+ As my leather working experience increases, my tool set has been increasing as well. Having nice tools creates such a freedom, and learning new skills keeps things challenging and interesting.

+ It’s a big mess up there! There are piles forming everywhere and I can’t wait to take a day to just clean and organize. One of these days…

+ I broke another  throat plate the other day. Breaking metal with metal…. such a terrible sound. Luckily, this time I had an extra on hand.

+ And the usual lot of cutting, pinning, sewing, pressing, pounding, packing…


Got a late start this morning and now it’s time to get to work.

    Hi Abby,
    I feel bad that’s it’s been so long since I visited you here. I just wanted to pop by, say hello, and let you know that I am thinking of you. Yesterday I put on my cashmere sweater, thought of you, and smiled.

    Hope you have a wonderful day today.

    Love, Taryn
