A little shop update
Mmmm organic cotton/hemp texture....
Things have slowed down a bit when it comes to my little shop. I'm holding back on printing any new designs or doing any large runs until Ink & Spindle is all set up.
Getting the new business ready has been a lot of fun, but has also had it's really full on and stressful moments - all those anxieties that come with starting something new in a field that I'm not completely familiar with. I'm learning a lot about myself in the process too - like realizing I have a tendency to stress about small things, especially in situations where I don't know how precise something needs to be. Screen printing isn't rocket science, but I know it's important for us to get our setup right in the beginning, to prevent problems down the track.
Anyway, amidst all of that I've managed to update my shop with a small amount of new fabrics. And I know I've said it before, but this really is the last time I'll be printing Riverstones & Dots fabric... unless I decide to reimage them onto a screen again sometime down the track.
