..here's to Beacon Hill

Mia FioravantiComment

I can hardly keep this news under my new linen hat, but I just have to tell the world. I am opening a brick and mortar shop on Beacon Hill in Seattle. What is so exciting is that it is going to be a shared space with one of the most iconic letterpress print shops in Seattle, Day Moon Press. Maura who owns and operates the press, is opening space up in her fantastic shop that is part press shop, part letterpress museum. You feel like you are in the midst of the Industrial Revolution. We (Maura and I), feel our crafts are so well suited for each other. Our philosophy and point of view are similar and what we do individually is all about the artistry, what is essential and functional with a little bit of impracticality thrown in to keep things light. So we are building a room within a room, opaque and yet transparent, highly visible from the street and now, no appointments necessary. I will house my studio there, mostly, and have a retail space in front. It is what I have wanted for so long. My big step out…in July!

Stay tuned...
