our new space!

This is the outside of our new space! We're very excited about our fiber arts co-op (I think that's what we've agreed to be). We have the arts council next door, an art gallery down at the end, a yoga studio, and many artists' studios.















And here's the inside, all 1200 sq. feet, being used as storage right now for several entities there. But one of our group's husband is an architect, and he was there yesterday making drawings for the bathroom to be installed and the various sinks and outlets to be installed. Those plans should go to the building's owner on Monday; we hope work starts in there in early April.

We're going here to look at furniture and fixtures, as a group. I'm not sure what I'll be doing, because someone has just alerted me to the greatest second-hand furniture store that imports stuff from England! (Why here? I'll ask next time I'm in, which should be soon.)

I bought a great chair for $20, which I'm dragging in there to sit and knit. I'm not concerned about what someone else things. It's pretty plain (someone of our group has already decreed, "No chintz"!!)

Saturday, someone else went out and bought a 10cft refrig, on sale; it has a very important component--a freezer for ice.

So, one chair, one refrigerator.

An excellent space and such a lovely brick exterior I see in the next post.
I can't wait to see it up and running. How long before you open your doors?
