change of plans

If you've been following along here, you may have noticed that we had a little (OK, big) change of plans for our Summer.  The trailer that we take to shows is growing grass around it . . .

I must say, it seems a little counter-intuitive to announce the events that we're NOT doing, but since we've been doing them for 12 straight years, it feels like we should let you all know that we won't be there . . .

We missed you all at the Clam Festival in July.  We will really miss you all at the League of NH Craftsmen's Fair, which starts this weekend.  (Our year usually revolves around this show - it is so strange to not be there!)  We will also be bummed to skip the Norwich Farmers' Market- our dates were in late August.

The truth is, we had some unexpected challenges following the birth of our second child in April.  As a result, we needed to make some tough decisions about our working life.  Ultimately, they were decisions that have proved really positive for our family's health and well-being.  Thankfully, we are all doing really well now, and enjoying our first Summer as a family of four at a somewhat different pace.

As my friend Susan said, "clay keeps in a bag, small children don't." :)

What we ARE happily planning for this year is a big Fall wood-firing, and a Kiln Opening Celebration and Sale at our VT studio.  We'll have a full wood-kiln freshly unloaded with hundreds of new pieces, live music, food, and general merriment under the kiln barn.  Stay tuned for those dates, we'll be announcing them soon!

We also hope for a hearty update to our Etsy shop for those of you who can't make it to VT in the Fall.

Thanks, as always, for following along and supporting our handmade life!
