New Studio Update

Today was the first day we screen-printed in our new studio and I couldn't be happier.

This is our Iron Flowers print on Duck Egg Blue linen. It will be magically transformed into tablecloths, table runners and cushions and once we catch up with orders, curtains for my lounge room.

Only one printing table is currently set up as we are still waiting for the top of the 2nd table to be completed but that's okay. At least we are back in business and ready for the lovely ladies participating in my screen-printing class this weekend. And no more leaks!

The new fans are amazing. Fabric was dried in no time. I don't think we have ever printed yardage so quickly. Things will speed up even more once we can continue screen printing onto Table No. 2.

God bless the Queensland sunshine. Honestly, it only took a couple of minutes for this large screen to dry on each side. I do towel-dry it after washing but still - it was fast!

Once we finish setting up, I really want to have an official Studio Opening. Would you like to come along? Let me know if you think a week day is preferable or a weekend?

Happy days indeed to see screen-printing happening in the new studio! :)

I hope to be able to make it along to your official opening ... :)

Weekends may see you get more people along, but I suppose weekdays are more common for special event 'openings'.
