New Studio Tour!

New Studio Tour!

In case you haven't heard- I moved!  My new studio spaces is at the Lincoln Street Center in Rockland Maine, located at 24 Lincoln St. The Lincoln Street Center is an old school building that has been turned into studio and office spaces for makers, artists, writers, photographers, and small businesses. It's a really cool creative space that has a lot of history in this community since it is one of the oldest buildings in Rockland! 

For now you can set up an appointment to visit me and shop the studio, just like I did at my previous space. Soon I will set up some set hours and I hope to set up a monthly spinning/knitting group and potentially offer some classes. 

While in some ways my move was sudden, I have actually had my eyes out for a new space for quite a while. I loved my old studio, but it was difficult to have people come in and shop. Also, classes and gatherings were really out of the question in my previous studio due to the size and set up of the space. 

Besides that, most of my studio space had been commandeered by my landlord since November as he did improvements on the building. Over time it became basically impossible for me to get my work done there. Thankfully, everything came together very quickly and easily regarding this new space and I am now back to fully operational! 

And so with that, I thought I would give you a quick visual tour of how things are shaping up so far! 

At the far end of my 1,200 square foot room, I have put up my yarn wall. This is basically the same amount of yarn wall that I had in my previous space, but all in one great big beautiful line- which I love. And don't even get me started on the light! The light in this space is truly exceptional and you can see all the colorways so well! That will be an especially welcome change for locals who like to stop by and shop for yarn. 

 So next to my yarn wall is this cute little nook that I have set up for shipping and tagging yarn. Eventually I will get taller tables, but for now these will get me going. I want to be able to work a little bit and figure out the flow before I invest in any new furniture.

Across from my shipping table, on the opposite wall,  I've set up a little sitting nook. My plan for this space is to become a comfy lounge area for sittin' and knittin'. That will grow organically as I find just the right treasures for my space. 

I still have some yarn that needs to be put away...this is my small collection of seconds that I might try and put up on the website this coming week. Make sure you are signed up for my newsletter to stay in the know with that.

 

Just up from my cozy spot is my skein winding table and cubby of personal stash. This of course isn't all of it, these are just some of my most recent purchases that make me feel good to look at and pet. I never have time to work with other people yarn, but a girl can dream! 

Behind the yarn cubby I've set up a cozy floor spot with a new rug I found at Job Lots and some super soft pillows and my pelts. Parker here is enjoying this little corner quite a bit!

 

On the other end of the room is my dye kitchen and my "office" set up. I love how it's separate from the inventory portion of my space, but still open.

This side of my studio still has needs some work. My previous dye space was so small that all of my equipment filled it! The good news is I have what I need to get going and I will just add on as I go! 

I know some of you were really sad to see me leave behind my beautiful blue wall, but I wanted to let you know that I plan on setting up a new drying wall photography set up here. I'm not sure if it will be another blue wall or a new color yet, but I know whatever I choose- it will be beautiful! 

Thank you again for all of your patience and support during this time! Change and transition is always hard but made a lot more bearable when you have so many amazing people cheering you on! <3
