Moving Our Business Back Home To Niskayuna, New York

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!
Rosemary and Lauren
With us moving our business to our home studio, we’re having a MOVING SALE.  All of Rosemary’s painted items are discounted up to 50% off, Lauren’s crochet and polymer clay items have been discounted, all other artists items remain at the same price.  This is due to the fact that we have to pay our artists.  Stop by STRAWBERRY FEST 2017 for Upper Union Street’s street wide event and our BIG MOVING SALE.

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.
