Starting a "Store"

I have decided to start a "store" online. I will be selling my covered journals (mooi boekomslag), custom covers for books, covered sketch books, iPad/Tablet covers, Nook/Kindle covers, purses, handbound leather covered blank books, and painted and quilted dolls. I will also sell small and medium sized matted pieces of my fiber art ready for framing.

I just signed a contract to teach 2 classes at Schoodic Art for All this summer along the Maine coast. I will be teaching Silk Screen Construction and Uses (stencils, gel glue resist, soy wax resist, flour paste resist, tape and paper resists and deconstructed screening. I will also teach Stamp Making for making flat and round (rolling) stamps as well as stamps from photographs.

I have applied to teach a class in Silk Scarf Batik and a Bookbinding class at Fiber College where I have taught for the last two summers.

I think I have already mentioned that my friend, Marcella Christensen, and I are hoping to form a non-profit organization that will be a clearing house for art teachers, classes and workshops on the Maine Coast. Lots of big plans. Let's hope they develop well...
