Awhile back I got an email from a woman who was starting a cooperative craft center. She was wondering if I'd be interested in selling some of my goods there, but since I thought we'd be moving I told her no thank you but good luck. Then the other day Brendan and I were taking a walk in our new neighborhood and we passed this cutest building--an old blue house that had a sign out front saying it was an artists space. I said hmmm, I wonder if that's the same lady that contacted me last fall? Sure enough it was!
I went over to talk to her on Tuesday and it was so amazing! The place is an old house, the front room has goods for sale from local artists. Some photos, some jewelry, some sewn goods, a little of everything. Then there's a sewing room, and upstairs are two studios. They have classes and events, host birthday parties, and will be taking part in the local art fair this summer, which is a huge ordeal around here!
And the best thing is, they want to sell my things! I am so excited to be doing this, it's another way to get my stuff out there. When we were moving and I had boxed up all my sewing stuff, I realized how much I love to sew. I love to make things, and I love to sell them, just to know others like it, too. But I'm not really interested in making a ton of money, just enough to support my fabric addiction! And to be able to join a group of local artists and have the support of a community will be really nice, too.
So, if you're in the Ann Arbor, Michigan area and need a bib, blanket, or baby shoes, be sure to stop by Blue House Ann Arbor!
