The lease on the new space is signed. As of 12/1, we will have our own fiber arts playhouse in Richmond,VA. My 2 studios may be combining so we are all in one space. Yay!
The square footage is not as much as I thought, but I’ve been told that we can expand easily. Our attempt is to finish our recruitment of teachers so we can offer needlepoint, cross-stitch, weaving, spinning, knitting, crochet, sewing and quilting, (felting would be nice, but we don’t have the wet facility) etc. Keep us in your prayers (yes, I’m talking with a potential business partner). In my mind, I already have 12 weaving students, 10 knitters, a full sewing class, and crocheters who are working along merrily with my weaving student whom I hope to recruit to teach. I’ll post pics very soon.
The address is 3800 Stillman Pkwy, Richmond, VA 23233.
