Last Chance to Drop By…

IMG_0915

Well, if you put off till now to drop by my studio for great bargains you will definitely find them – but you only have two more days to do so!

Friday, April 28th and Saturday, April 29th from noon till 4 pm the doors open for one final weekend. I have added many great items to the books and art work. There is a mountain of art supplies including large sketchbooks and mixed media papers, book shelves and so much more.

And contrary to popular believe and much misleading advertisements by some of the groups I have contacted, this is not a sale just for quilters and those working with fabric. So, come on out, be curious and see what I have. You may even find THE thing you cannot live without!

Everything must go. No reasonable offers on books  (still about 600 titles – art reference, art practice, embroidery, design, quilting, felting, sewing, mixed media techniques), equipment (book shelves, tables, chairs, craft cupboard, small washing machine, computer desk – all like new) and art work (framed and textile hangings) will be refused.
Please feel free to forward this email to friends, fellow guild members and artists who may be interested. Please note: Once May 1st arrives the studio will be closed and all left over inventory will be discarded.
Looking forward to seeing everyone!
Anna

    Sorry to hear your husband is not well. My daughter and I took one of your classes in Edmonton and I had always hoped to see your place in Sask. as I am from that area originally. I read your reply about not going to the US to teach and I agree with you. Maybe you will consider a move to Alberta???

    • Hi Carol, we had a rough couple of years and my husband is stable now but it took a toll on my energy. It’s time to step back and reflect for a bit. A move to Alberta is not in the future. We moved to SK from Calgary 10 years ago and once you leave Alberta it’s difficult to go back. No decisions have been made as to where exactly we will end up. We are looking forward to some travel in Canada this fall and then will make a decision.

    Anna –

    I attended a kantha workshop in NJ a few years back and I have been looking for you in this part of the world again. I am so sad that you do not feel free to travel to the US. My best to you and your husband. Carol McGough

    • Carol, yes the Kantha workshop in NJ in 2015… what a nice group we had with the snow flying outside the big windows. From that came an invitation to write a book on the subject. It is scheduled to come out in August this year. My travels to the US have been limited even before the appointment of the new government as there have been no invitation until one this week. One never knows – things can change fast. For now I am concentrating on selling our home and studio and since we don’t know exactly where we will move and settle next the future is wide open. It feels good to have some time off from travel and teaching. Three intense years of catching planes, packing and unpacking and getting stuck in airport really tired me out.

    Oh Anna, how I wish I could zip down there to see all these things, and your studio and you! I saw a news spot on the flying cars that Uber is experimenting with (Jetson’s style) and that would be just the thing! I hope you have been having a good (great!) response, nonetheless. I look forward to seeing you in August!

  5. Thanks for your help in advertising for me, Judith! Yes, I hope I am busy this weekend. Nobody can blame not coming out on the weather! The sun is shining and there is no wind!

    Anna, I wish I could make it out. Do you have the book, Art At the Speed of Life, for sale? I have it on hold at the library and want to check it out. It would be the most interesting and delightful day browsing through your studio. I hope that you get rid of it all.——Shirley

    • Shirley, I did have that book but it sold the first weekend which was the busiest so far. I averaged about 2 -3 people a weekend…. When I had Open Studio for one weekend a year in the past (and baked cakes for a week and gave them away for free) and nothing was for sale I had well over a hundred 130 people… such is life.

    Hi Anna, I’m wondering if you are closing your studio for good? Are you moving to another home.? I wish I lived near you because I definitely would’ve made many trips to your studio sale. I hope you can come out my way (Virginia Beach, Va.) to teach at a Mancuso Brothers Mid-Atlantic Quilt Show usually held in February. I’m also eager to see your new book. I’m sure you’re “up to your ears in alligators”, but please answer my questions.. thanks, and I’m wishing you all the best.

    • Hi Lynne, we are selling our property and with that comes the closure of my studio, yes. We are not sure where we are going from here. We have had a very tough two years with sudden health changes for my husband. Living in the country is not advisable when one needs medical care. As to teaching in the US – that is out during the current administration due to the difficulties crossing the border. I am a Canadian citizen but was born in Germany, so will not subject myself to undue stress. And it is not really just about me and border issues – it is in support for those who are visible minorities and are forever scrutinized by border officials and have been denied entry for no apparent reason. I bowed out from a Road2Clifornia contract yesterday for 2018.

    Anna I do hope many people take advantage of your wonderful studio sale this weekend. Those who have not yet journeyed there may not realize what they are missing – which is a great deal literally and figuratively!
