New year, new space
2016 is shaping up to be a big year for Red Gate Stitchery. I have grand plans and exciting projects in the works and millions of ideas swirling around inside my brain. Most thrilling of all, these plans and projects and ideas will soon have a new space to bloom in. For the past few months, we have been living amid construction dust and noise and general disruption as a fabulous new studio space is built in our home. It's every maker's dream: a clean, bright, inspiring space in which to create. A home for creative hopes and dreams. A launching pad. A safe haven. I am giddy beyond belief. Most of the construction is done now, save a bit of electrical work and painting, and I will soon be setting up the space. It feels like a blank slate. It feels like the start of something good. Here's hoping your 2106 is the start of something good too.
