A 1, 000 lb in my kitchen

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….
