The Studio and Shop

Last Fall, muchacha K handmade got its first official work studio. I was looking for something smaller, a little less lovely, really, a heated hovel would have been fine as long as there was enough room for my sewing machines. However, when I started looking for spaces, I saw this space, and the possibilities instantly hit me. Plus, the natural light at that particular time of day was gorgeous. It didn't matter that is was way too big, or that the landlord had
piled a ton of crap in the front room. I had to have it.

Instead, I ignored that thought for about two months. I worked in the basement, surrounded by tubs and tubs of fabric. But the thought nagged in the back of my brain. I called the landlord, signed the lease, and muchacha K handmade studios was born. As you can see in the pics, things have gotten much prettier...but we're not done yet. The Speakeasy Boutique opens in February 2008, featuring unique regional artisan handcrafts.
