“A dream you dream alone is only a dream. A dream you dream together is reality”

The past year has been a dream. I have been collecting knowledge. I have taken 8 courses and read countless books on both textile and metal work. I have spent hours and hours and hours in my studio doing my best to use the knowledge and create my new reality. I am pumped. I love that I am on a new path. Yet I miss community. Oh, I have met people, but it seems mostly these connections must be maintained over the internet. We all know thats not my style. I miss the sense of community we had, the connection.

“I define connection as the energy that exists between people, when they feel seen, heard, and valued; when they can give and receive without judgement; and when they derive sustenance and strength from the relationship”
Breneﹶ Brown

Dave has given us another chance to connect. He has also giving me a chance to purge and make room for all my new dreams. So I am doing a pop-up store. I will also destash as much as possible. Of course, I have a lot of beautiful things I have collected over 24 years. Now, I want to sort and share.

Location it is familiar. Same location, just the Backdoor off the parking lot.

To reconnect with community Friday the 4th and Friday the 11th from 4-6 will be for just that. Those that want to come for pot-luck finger food evening, we will get together from 4-6 on the 4th. The following Friday we will repeat, except bring Show-and-tell. I have also the next Friday the 18th booked if we want to continue.

Looking forward to seeing everyone. I am so excited about getting together again.
