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.
The L.W.A. will remain the same, just with a few more stationery sets available to members. What will change is that we will no longer be producing our sarcastic cards and will be focusing solely on the Letter Writers Alliance. 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.
What does this mean for you? Well, firstly, we are having a sale on our cards! Secondly, expect to see a lot more new L.W.A. items, projects, and events. Donovan and I have a lot of stuff up our sleeves for the L.W.A. and we can't wait to show them to you!
What does this mean for 16 Sparrows? Donovan and I are still in this together, we just want to focus our energies into L.W.A. We will continue to do our freelance design and illustration work under the 16 Sparrows name, so it will not be completely gone. Feel free to ask any questions!
