It has been a lovely, adventurous, and hectic three weeks. Before I write any posts on my last camping trip of the season, I figured I should tell you a few bits of news:
1) Donovan and I got our very first work studio!
After years of working in our respective homes, we finally have a proper place to call the L.W.A. Clubhouse. We are super pleased and are having a Studio Warming on Nov. 15th. I'm still waiting to hear what the times are, but I will let you know as soon as I find out. (The entire building is having open studios, so I'm still waiting to hear from the manager what times they choose.)
2) We will no longer make cards after January 2015!
16 Sparrows and Letter Writers Alliance will become one of the same. After years of maintaining two separate (yet linked) shops, we've decided to merge 16 Sparrows under the Letter Writers Alliance umbrella. It is funny that the L.W.A. grew out of 16 Sparrows, and now eleven years later, 16 Sparrows is going back into what it created and you all made so popular. (Oh my, 11 years!)
Donovan and I will still be making about 75% of the product we are already making, just under the Letter Writers Alliance name. We've decided to stop making cards, so if there is any card you are keen on, get it now. This means we are having a sale on our cards!
We will also have our cards at Show of Hands and the Renegade Holiday show. Any craft fairs we do from January 2015 and onward will only have L.W.A. items. We will still be selling 16 Sparrows items until up to the end of the year, so this is not going to be some overnight change.
Thanks for being awesome and making the L.W.A. such a strong community. Feel free to ask any questions and I hope you take advantage of our sale or come by to the studio warming.
