It’s time to mix this up, so here’s the big news! I’m going to close my Oilcloth Addict shop in the new year (coupon code endofyear35 saves you 35% at OCA only). Why? There are several happy reasons. The main reason is that the lease on my studio is up in February and I’m really ready for a change.
I’m moving my professional sewing equipment to a new maker space that is opening in late Winter/early Spring, and I’m totally excited about this!! All the cutting tables and sewing machines will be there for (me and) the members to use. I don’t want to sell it all off, ‘cause you never know when you might need such things. In the meantime, they’ll have a good home!
Giving up 120 bolts of fabric to sell-and-store will give me the chance to grow Modern June in new and different ways.
There will also be changes in the Modern June product line: I’ll be shifting from production to pattern making. Those of you that know me well, already know that I targeted this for last year. But you know that saying that about best laid plans? Yep, it’s all true. I got a little sidetracked when my hubby took a golden parachute from his last job, and was home taking care of homeschooled kids for 10 months. While I am truly blessed to have a product line to fall back on when times are tough, I’m really excited to move forward.
The best reason for these changes, is that I get to be a homeschool mom again. I have a senior to get off to college and a sophomore to teach. I can’t wait to get back in the swing of things again. I’ve missed their grumpy faces when it’s time to get some school work done. : )
And patterns! Ooo… I’m really excited about this. I’ve been wanting to develop a PDF pattern line for about 4 years now and 2016 is finally going to be my year to grow and change. I can’t wait.
But wait, there’s more: I also have a long list of DIY projects lined up, like getting that darn camper done, and painting my dining room and kitchen cabinets white. Oh! It’s all I can do to not start it all today.
Modern June will go on vacation this Tuesday and will open back up in early January to sell all my in-stock items. Sorry, there will be no more custom orders.
Oilcloth Addict will remain open through the holiday season. All oilcloth, laminated cotton and chalk cloth is 35% off right now. I sold 156 yards of fabric since I posted the sale in my newsletter on Monday, so shop now, while supplies last. Use coupon code endofyear35 at OCA only.
This is all so big and real, that I have been afraid to say it out loud. Now that I have, I’m excited and not so scared.
What is on your 2016 to do list?
