Dear Artists Of Sow’s Ear Studio

Dear Artists Of Sow’s Ear Studio,

Just to let you know, we’re almost getting to the end of August for moving our business back home in our home studio in Niskayuna.  With being here for almost 20 years, this is a bittersweet move for us because of all the memories and people we’ve met.

We need help from our artists to have them come and get their items.  I’m asking artists nicely to call Rosemary to have your handmade items picked up because she’s still painting some furniture for some clients, and I’m moving out as many items as I can.  Please give Rosemary a call to have your items picked up from the shop. We’re here Tuesday-Friday 10:00a.m.-5p.m. Saturday 10:00a.m.-4p.m.

Rosemary and would like to out by the end of August and back home to continue to make art for our online studio.  Cards will be mailed to your home to let you know when we’re ready to have custom made furniture and crochet items made.  Rosemary’s Etsy Shop will be open at the end of September 2017, stay tuned.

Dear Facebook friends and fans,
Life is full of passages, and today we are announcing one of our own. After almost twenty years on Upper Union Street, Sow’ s Ear Studio is relocating the business to our home office.  It’s been a wonderful run, but this move is best for us.
We will close officially at the end of July. In the meantime, we are having a moving sale, lots of great deals to be had. We will be here for Strawberry Fest on June 17th and during our regular shop hours as we prepare for the move.
I will still be accepting orders for re -painting your furniture, and will continue to do so even as we transition to our new digs.
We hope you’ll stop by while we are still here to chat and check out our moving sale.
Thanks to all our supporters. Hope to see you soon!

Spring Open House 2017 At Victoria Adamo

Normally we’re at Sow’s Ear Studio on Saturday from 10:00a.m.-4:00p.m., but this past Saturday Rosemary and I spent our Saturday at Victoria Adamo Day Spa for their annual Spring House.  Packing up my Jeep with Rosemary’s items and my items and setting up our booth Friday night before made our lives easier, so all we had to do was drive to Rotterdam, New York and promote our handmade items.   Thanks to Victoria Adamo, they provided a six foot table and we were able to bring both Rosemary’s items and my items, some of which were placed on the table, some of which were placed on the shelf we brought.

Not getting our hopes up in making sales, we were more interested in promoting the painted items and crochet items.  Meeting new people and visiting with other friends was fun on Saturday.  By the end of the day Rosemary and I were ready for a long nap.  Rosemary is also working on new product for her Etsy shop and hoping that her shop will be open by the end of June-July.  Rosemary will be selling mostly painted candlesticks, glasses, boxes for the time being.  We’re researching on how to ship the painted furniture and larger items.

Hello Italy

Ever since mom has had her shop in Schenectady, we’ve fell in love with this Italian restaurant named Scotti’s. Scotti’s is a family owned restaurant that makes the best Italian food. The owners are also good friends. Our family enjoys a good Italian meal a couple times a year and every time it’s the best.  I also love Italian food, but some food is not easy to prepare.

I love having someone make something that I’m not good at making so I can have a treat when going out.  This time we went to celebrate a belated birthday for my dad.  Our favorite dishes range from eggplant to seafood, to veal, to chicken.  Most of the time we order eggplant and seafood.  Last night, mom had the spinach ravioli special with a light red sauce, Dad had his favorite seafood with pasta and a Light Red sauce, and I had eggplant rollitini with a light red sauce.

 

 


March Madness


With mother nature fooling us the last two weeks, we’ve had warm weather, and it’s right back to feeling winter with temperatures that are below zero.  Not to complain about Upstate New York, but as I get older, the more I can’t stand winter.  Wanting spring so badly, I wore sandals for a few days.  Now I’m right back to wearing a closed shoe.

With a few more weeks of winter, it’s time to think about spring, flowers, fashion items, and painted items from Sow’s Ear Studio.  Figuring out with doing knit, crochet, or both knit and crochet, I’ve been coming up with some new baby blanket and blanket ideas for the home, along with table runners, rugs, scarves, and shawls.  Cowls will be worked on this summer and will be presented for the fall.

New handmade items are also in the works for both Sow’s Ear Studio and Where’s The Yarn.  Items include painted candle jars with poured candles by Rosemary and Lauren Prock.  Ever since helping out a friend with his daughter’s school, I forgot what it was like to burn candles and the lovely fragrance that comes with burning the candles.  I’m currently doing research on types of candle wax, fragrances, and designs for the outside of the candle jars.  It seems to me that soy and palm waxes are the most popular with candles.  See these candles come alive with Rosemary and Lauren this spring and summer.  Purchase these handmade pieces on Where’s The Yarn’s etsy shop, Sow’s Ear Studio’s etsy shop, and Sow’s Ear Studio shop in Schenectady.

Back open after our March Madness snow storm. Rosemary and Lauren are so looking forward to spring and some color outside.
