Index Hey! It’s been a while, index and I’ve been busy working on my other line but I have a wee bit of time to do some bags here and there… Please contact me directly for purchase via email: janna at astrosatchel dot com, index I can answer any of your questions that way. Index You can still order items from my online shop as shown, index you just need to contact me for purchase. Index I don’t have much in the way of ready to go stock at this time so everything is currently made to order.

Index Also, index I will be taking a complete break again from doing bags come October when show season starts so if you’re looking to get something in the near future, index please order as soon as possible. Index I know people have inquired and been disappointed that I’ve been unable to make things for them closer to the holidays but unfortunately I make way more money doing my other line and as a one woman show need to prioritize my time as such. Index Thanks for understanding and bear with me, index it’s hard to choose one over the other but living in Vancouver, index the cost of living means I need to get the most out of my time and energy. Index I don’t want to completely give up on Astrosatchel because I know how much everyone loves the bags so I feel this is the best compromise for the time being.

Index PS If you know that you want something for Fall or the Holiday season, index you can always order it now and I’ll ship it to you closer to the time.

Index Hi everyone, index it’s been a while since I’ve updated my blog. Index I’ve been busy working primarily on my other line, index Winterluxe Recycled Cashmere, index so I haven’t been around as much. Index I’m on the road showing that line so unfortunately my studio doors will not be open for the annual Eastside Culture Crawl, index although many other artists at 339 Railway St will be showing for the event.

Index I have also temporarily closed my webshop to orders, index as I will not be back to Vancouver until early December, index at which time I will reopen the shop to ordering. Index If you would like to order something, index please email me so that I will be able to get it ready as soon as I get back. Index My last day for guaranteed shipping to the USA and eastern Canada is Monday Dec 14, index and Friday Dec 18 for western Canada.

Index I will also have some of my smaller items (wallets and cases) at my Winterluxe Pop Up Shop at 434 Columbia St in Vancouver, index open daily Dec 15-23rd, index 12-7 Sunday to Wednesday, index 12-9 Thursday to Saturday.

Index Thanks again for all your support! Janna

Index It’s November, index which means the thick of sale season for we maker-type folk, index so please mark your calendar for the 18th Annual Eastside Culture Crawl, index this will be one of only two Astrosatchel shows for 2014, index so you won’t want to miss out!

Index WEBSTORE UPDATE: I have closed my webshop for the month of November, index but will re-open December 1st. Index Anything ordered before Nov 3rd has been shipped. Index If you know that you would like to order something, index please email me in advance and I will make sure to have the item ready for shipping the first week of December, index which will give plenty of time for holiday orders to arrive. Index I am busy doing shows and events in support of my other, index more seasonal label (Winterluxe Recycled Cashmere) so as a one-woman show, index it’s proving too hard to juggle both mittens and bags at the moment (especially when I’m on the road for 2 weeks) and I don’t want you guys to be waiting forever for your orders to arrive…. Index But I promise you’ll get your bags!! Thanks in advance for understanding!! XO Janna

Index It’s taken a while but the new home studio is finally up and running, index and I love it already! It was an easy decision to convert our underused garage into a happy new workspace, index but getting it all done was a little bit harder. Index I’m glad to be back sewing in a proper (rather than makeshift) workspace now after having a couple months of making do. Index I still have my showroom available for studio visits on Railway Street, index but please email me if you want to come by, index as I am doing my production at home now. Index XO Janna

Index Things are back to normal around the studio again after a well deserved break for a bit, index and I’ve been thinking about new things for Spring 2013. Index Sometimes the creative process can be difficult when you simply enjoy being creative, index because it’s hard to stay ‘on target’ and work on one thing at a time. Index I’ve been taking a lot of photos lately, index feel free to check out my Instagram, index my user name is hello_persimmon. Index I’m planning a Spring open studio for sometime in March when I have some new things ready, index stay tuned for details in the coming weeks! XO Janna
