Belle Armoire, Studio Addition, Etsy Sale, and more!

I have so much exciting news to share I'm not sure where to start.  Here goes .......

Firstly Belle Armoire has finished the summer edition where I was chosen to be featured in the "Designer Collection" segment.  I can not tell you how thrilled I am for this to come out on the stands!  Rice Freeman-Zachary did a fabulous write up!  You can pre-order a copy here Belle Armoire
I hope each and everyone of you will get a copy rather it be through the mail or on local news stands!  Look for it beginning July 1.


To commemorate this feature article I am offering a 20% discount on everything in both of my Etsy shops when you use the coupon code BELLEARMOIRE at checkout through the month of June!

My sister Jan left yesterday.  We were busy all week working in the studio, visiting the Alameda Flea market (and getting a little sunburned, oops!), and reminiscing about our childhood.


Here are some of the garments we worked on and finished.  I will be listing them in Etsy tomorrow and I will have a few more garments to showcase and sell but need to get photos taken.








Lastly my husband and son Tony are working hard on adding an addition to my studio!  I am hoping to have more room so in the future I can hold small workshops in my studio.  I had such fun when Joanne and Fran visited and we worked in the studio I would like to host more workshops of this nature.  I can offer so much more individual help and have all the "tools" available for use. 


Beginning of construction.

How exciting this is. You are famous... and I know you. I will find the magazine or order it from you.
Also, the new workspace that you will have is wonderful. I'm so happy for you.
Life is good...

WOW! That is a LOT of awesome goodness happening in your part of the world Lorri! I will be on the lookout for Belle Armoire so I can purchase what will be my first copy of the magazine!

I love your idea of hosting workshops in your space and I'm hoping to work toward the same goal in my humble abode. I sure would be happy to take a dye workshop from you any day!
