How are you all?
Hope you all are well and safe. Just a note to let you know that I have not forgotten you. I also want to let you know what’s happening at Jewels & Fiber Art Studio. When I left the shop March 16th, due to the Stay-In-Place orders, I took home all sorts fabrics and other craft projects that I thought I was going to have great fun creating with all the time I was going to have. Only to find out I did not feel like doing anything. I did not feel creative. I was uninspired, and in a funk. My May, June, and July classes have been cancelled. Like many of you, I started Spring cleaning, (more on that later) cooking fabulous dinners and even a little gardening.
I was not even inspired with all of the mask making frenzy. I must admit I only made them for family and friends. I have to apologize to all my sew sistahs. Thanks for stepping up. I am doing fine these days in these crazy times as each day goes by. It's important that we all stay connected. You may be by yourself, but you are not alone. I hope you all are taking advantage of this time to re-connect and stay creative.
I promised that something great was coming to Jewels & Fiber.
I am super excited to announce that Jewels & Fiber will have a new website. It seems like I've been building it all by myself. Little did I know, I was responsible for all the data entry for the whole website. So, it is taking just a little longer than I anticipated. It is going to be great! I can't wait to share it with you. The new site will offer my unique designs as well as the ability for you to sign up for in-store or social media workshops and classes. New line of products like mixed media and surface design art materials, new and used craft books, Marcia Derse fabric, kits, gift cards, and you'll be able to even earn reward points. I'm hopeful and optimistic to be back online around the first part of June.
Please stay tuned. You will the first to know when it is live.
And finally, I am feeling inspired to work on a new line of handbags and wearable art, hopefully for next year’s art shows. My artists events have either been rescheduled or cancelled. I will have more time to work on things. Right?
If you registered for the Metal Mania Workshop, this class will be the first class rescheduled when things get back to the new normal.
Although we are not able to connect in person right now, we're still in the midst of this. We will be back together soon.
Continue to create and stay safe everyone.
