Building 8 is great.


The new cutting table.

We have been hard at work transitioning the studio to the new space. Here's a peek at our progress. Things are moving amazingly fast. Credit goes to Brendan and Jeremy who have worked at lightning speed. They pulled up all the masonite that was covering the wood slat floors and sealed everything with polyurethane in one day...ONE DAY! They have been building walls, cleaning, organizing, building shelves, installing new lights and electrical outlets. It looks amazing in there. All the while, I have been upstairs sewing while everything disappears around me. I did a set of cutting yesterday and within 30 minutes of finishing, all of my fabric had been moved! I think all in all, there will only be 3 or 4 days of total down time from production. I will need to spend some time organizing the new space, but we built all new tables and tons of shelves so there will be plenty of space to work and store things. I'm so excited! If you want to see more images of our progress, I just uploaded a bunch of images to flickr.

p.s. our apartment has been rented.
