Hey! If you’ve ever wondered about what it’s like to be an artist living and working in Vancouver, check out this great site Hot Art Wet City! I was interviewed recently about running my own Arts based business, check it out here!
Things are back to normal around the studio again after a well deserved break for a bit, and I’ve been thinking about new things for Spring 2013. Sometimes the creative process can be difficult when you simply enjoy being creative, because it’s hard to stay ‘on target’ and work on one thing at a time. I’ve been taking a lot of photos lately, feel free to check out my Instagram, my user name is hello_persimmon. I’m planning a Spring open studio for sometime in March when I have some new things ready, stay tuned for details in the coming weeks! XO Janna
There’s still some time left if you’re in Vancouver to come grab a gift or two, but today marks the last day for shipping if you’re not super local…. I’d hate for your gift to not arrive in time, so please bear this in mind with any purchases made in my online shop over the next couple days.
The studio is still open daily from 12-7pm until Dec 22. There’s still a good bunch of stock to choose from, and our exchange policy is simple: If they don’t love it, they can switch it for anything in the studio, or I’ll make something.
On December 23rd, I’ll be done for the holidays, but you can always email me: firstname.lastname@example.org and we can figure out exchanges/orders etc. Thanks a bunch! Janna
If you couldn’t make it to Shiny Fuzzy Muddy, or you just want to visit the studio, here’s your chance! I’ll be open starting Friday from Noon to 7pm daily until the 22nd. If you are looking for something in particular, email me and I will do my best to have it ready for you, as things are selling quickly these days…. See you soon! Janna
Hey, it’s Shiny Fuzzy Muddy time once again! I can’t believe how fast the time has goes, or that this is our 13th show!! I have to say SFM is my fav show of the year, both as a vendor and an organizer for the event. We always try to put together a show that we want to be at, and we want to shop at too, so everything is super high calibre work. Check it out at shinyfuzzymuddy.com
Please join me for our 13th show December 8+9, we’re open 11-9 Saturday and 10-7 Sunday, at Heritage Hall in Vancouver. If you want something specific for pick up at the show, please let me know so I can have it set aside for you. See you there! Janna
Thanks to everyone who braved the cold and wet to come visit the studio this weekend! According to estimates, we had close to 900 people visit, no wonder I’m so tired!! Please feel free to join my mailing list, I’ll keep you in the loop for my next shows, sales and new stuff….. XO Janna
Thanks Westender for the shout out! 339 Railway was also mentioned in Scout’s Guide to the Crawl, you can check out the article here! See you this weekend!! XO Janna
We got a little love from Scout Magazine today… Scout, we love you too! XO Janna
It’s almost Culture Crawl time again! I can’t believe this will be my 8th one, and that another year has come and gone already. I’ve been sewing lots lately, so there will be lots to see, wether you’re shopping for gifts or just checking things out.
I really enjoy participating in the Eastside Culture Crawl, it’s a great excuse to tidy up the studio and open the doors. Unlike most of my sales events where people are familiar with my label, this event sees people from all walks of life and is a really great way to get feedback about what I’m doing. Sometimes it’s just nice to have your work acknowledged, especially after spending so many long days and late nights alone in the studio…. And it’s a great chance to support local artists, in their own spaces! So plan to stop by Nov 16-18, it’ll be fun for everybody!!
Friday Nov 16 from 5-10
Sat+Sun Nov 17+18 from 11-6
Since our 100% recycled cashmere accessories have become even more popular, I’ve expanded the line to include lots of West Coast favs: toques (which fit under bike and sport helmets), reversible fingerless mittens (that fit men too), ear warmers (for crisp morning dog walks) and mittens with removable finger sections (for getting the best filter on Instagram)… I’ve renamed the line winterluxe, and there’s lots of stock at the studio for this weekend’s Open Studio Sale. I have lots of the classic arm warmers and scarves too. Come by and get first pick of the bunch!! See you soon!! XO Janna
