Studio update

Posted by A. Lorena Haldeman on

Picture heavy post! I've been getting some organization done lately in the studio, as much as I can, and I'm excited to share with you how it looks (even though it probably looks messy; Martha Stewart doesn't live here, this is a real working studio!). This is part of my office. The jars of glaze on the other side of that window aren't always going to live there (I hope - they really make the room dark!). The pile closest is a bookshelf with some wood piled on top of that with some slatwall piled on top of that. The...

Radio Silence

Posted by A. Lorena Haldeman on

Ugh. I am about to embark on something completely frightening for a self-employed business owner of an online shop... an Internet-free existence. Not forever, although it'll probably feel that way... but for at least four to six weeks, as it may take at least that long to get Internet/Phone/Cable at our new residence/studio. What this means for HaldeCraft orders Orders will go out on Mondays and Thursdays. If it’s an emergency order (don’t we all sometimes have yarn emergencies?) contact me and we’ll see about special arrangements. What this means for email While I will be able to get email,...

A quick update from my last moving post

Posted by A. Lorena Haldeman on

Let's see... when last we left our intrepid heroes, they were pretty sure they'd finally worked out the last of the plumbing problems. HAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAH sob. Well, let's see. Let me read over my last moving post, and update.... The truck hasn't had to go back to the shop for anything; yesterday I noticed a weird clinking sound coming from the back but I'm reasonably sure that's the dolly we tossed in the bed, hitting something metal when we go over bumps. The pipes that had been chewed through are all fixed, and two of the three toilets in the house...

The studio, so far

Posted by A. Lorena Haldeman on

Here are a couple of inside-studio shots. That Poor Man was originally going to start with the back deck for the house, but a little problem with the truck has derailed that for a couple of days. So he started with the studio, instead. TO START WITH... Here is just inside the front door (the door you can see in back of me in the second picture). To my right (out of frame) is my studio office; I'm standing with my back to what will be the seating/gathering area, and in back of that is a full bathroom (well, toilet...

HaldeCraft is moving. What does that mean for you?

Posted by A. Lorena Haldeman on

Remember about this time last year when I mentioned looking for a new home/studio space? That dream is finally - finally - being realized, and I'm going to have my hands full for the next couple of months. How will all of this affect HaldeCraft? Custom Orders are on hold. As of now, I'm not taking on any more custom work until May 3rd; while we hope to be moved in by the third weekend of April, I will need at least a week to start unpacking, and my focus that last week of April/first week of May will need to be...
