Gift-giving, mask-making, and a slight change to show schedules!
It's been a busy few months. Hope everyone is well today, and staying home if you can! Just a quick recap:
November was very busy with several craft shows in Vermont and New Hampshire. Saw lots of familiar faces, and sent home a lot of Chalkboard Mats!
This past December, we supported the Kiwanis local program here in Claremont, NH by buying several sets of pajamas and outfits for a family in need. :)
January and February were dedicated to admin stuff, cleaning up the studio, and a BIG MOVE ... to a lovely little studio on a rural mountainside, overlooking the the Sugar River. We are still in Claremont!
We do NOT have walk-in traffic here, which helps keep the studio clean and surfaces stay sanitized. I will be happy to put your order in the mail, right to your door, until craft shows can safely start up again! You can click through the Etsy links to browse Chalkboard Mats, 80s Ribbon Barrettes, and beading supplies. :)
(Please also see updated show list on the website ... note that the April 4-5 show in Milford, NH has been moved to May, possibly June .... so I'll keep you posted as soon as I know for sure where we will be next!)
This week, while adhering to CDC recommendations for social distancing, I have been in the studio making cotton face masks to donate to DHMC. The hospital system is accepting donations (based on a plan and notes that THEY are providing, that's important) to have additional sewn masks on hand in the event they need them for extra PPE. I can help. <3
And just a reminder that Victoria's Artisan Gifts always follows hand-washing and sanitizing precautions for hands and work surfaces! With a former background in health care, it's second nature here! D-H will also sanitize these masks when people drop them off at the donation center.
SO ... (SEW?!?) 😁 If you have NOT been exposed to someone suspected of having Covid-19 in the past 14 days, and you are interested in sewing masks to donate, please see IMPORTANT NOTES AND INSTRUCTIONS, HERE ---> https://www.dartmouth-hitchcock.org/patie…/sewing-masks.html ... Thank you, and be well! <3
