I've been bursting at the seams to share this news for months now, but needed to wait until the ink was dry. But the wait is over -- I've just returned home from Monroe Street Market, where I signed a lease to open a little studio and shop!
Analog will be opening (to some degree) later this month!
I can't properly express how excited I am for this new chapter for my business. I'm sharing the space with Lisa of Beltway Vintage, who will be repairing and re-making vintage clothing and accessories. We're psyched to be able to work together to bring reclaimed and recycled products inspired by the past to Washington, DC.
We will have workspace in the back half of our studio, where you'll be able to find me making Gocco prints, gluing envelopes, and otherwise making big messes. I've had so many ideas for products, bit I've been limited by the lack of storage and workspace in my dining area (which hasn't seen us dining in it in well over a year). I'm excited to have a light-filled space to get things done!
We will also have open studio hours for people to visit, as well as several special events and workshops throughout the year. (I'm thinking mail art socials up the wazoo.) Plus, there will soon be 26 other studios along the Arts Walk to inspire you whenever you visit.
I can't wait to show you our space as we start making it our own -- we begin painting tomorrow! We are hoping to be up and running in a few weeks, so watch this space for updates!

There was a beautiful piece in the New York Times yesterday by Ramona Ausubel about the marvel of mailing things halfway around the world. Check it out if you're a fellow philepistolist.
