Well, What can I say. My world has tilted to a new angle. I have moved to The MOST Amazing House!! I have storage, basins and a new normal size fridge. We were rushing to get it mostly finished before the arrival of 6 visitors from Melbourne. They are very friendly and generous. I showed them Bellekria, and they were very impressed with the cloth books. Upon hearing that the orders for them were from a library in the mountains, they decided to buy 10, and then donate them to the library. Wonderful for us, and wonderful for the library! The new designs are more technical and time consuming, so we are increasing the price accordingly. Thanks to a great suggestion from Fran, we have bought some wide ribbon to bind the edges of the book pages, rather than hand making bias binding. This will greatly reduce the cost of production.
ALSO, one of the men asked for two bandannas to be sewn up, one from a piece of local hand made TAIS fabric, and the other from an Indonesian print. He wants to pay $20 for the job, which me and Sinta think is quite ridiculous. But of course we are quite happy to oblige. ;)
Here they are moddelling the bandanas. Awesome hey?
