Hello Spring

After moving out of the shop and still unpacking from our move, Sow’s Ear Studio hasn’t had much time to say “hello”. With Spring here and watching television and still unpacking this is one of my favorite Sherwin Paints commercials. Simply click on the button and enjoy this lovely safari commercial. When we’re all done with unpacking, we’ll let you know.

Bittersweet Day, Moving With The Next Chapter

Today was a bittersweet day for both Rosemary D’Alberto Prock & Lauren Prock of Sow’s Ear Studio. We’ve said our final goodbyes and we’re officially out of 1597 Union Street. With the final move and unpacking at our new studio at home, we’re gonna do a huge mailing after the first of the year. Stay tuned as our new online business comes alive at our home. Rosemary D’Alberto Prock will still be doing painted furniture, accessories, and Lauren Prock will be doing crochet items for the home. It was a sad goodbye today, but we’re looking forward to the next chapter of our business as well as the next chapter of our lives.

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.

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.
