Actually, she arrived a couple of weeks ago. But I’ve been busy closing Water Street, moving into my new space at Forage Studio, and figuring her out.
The biggest problem will be having what I need both at home and the shop, something that’s already proven to be an issue. So perhaps over the next few weeks I’ll see if I can duplicate some items like furniture and leading.
Either way, I am SO excited. I love the first card I was able to pull off the press.
In three days, I’ll be the happy owner of an 8×12 Chandler and Price letterpress, fully restored by Ed Regan in Indiana. On Wednesday, he will arrive– ready to move it from his truck and roll it into my kitchen.
Yes, my kitchen. It’s the only place I have for such a lovely, huge item.
I am moving the rest of my shop to a new location as Water Street Studio is closing. But trying to get a heavy press up to the second floor again is impossible. So my husband suggested the little sitting room of our kitchen. After moving the furniture out, I agree– it’s perfect.
I don’t have a photo yet, but it’s one of these beauties!
Travel safely, Ed….
