Saturday and Sunday -June 7 and 8, 2008

We are having a special event as part of our usual Oregon Crafted weekend-The NEW WALL Celebration! As you might know, the studio was once a two story garage. The previous owner had turned the down stairs into a woodworking studio, but had left the garage door. When we moved in, we cleaned up the sawdust (actually we’re still doing that), insulated and finished the upstairs and began to write/ publish books and do our studio work in our new space.

Eventually, we discovered that the garage door was drafty and actually looked as though it was going to fall in. Thus, the NEW WALL was born! This wonderful wall is sturdy, well insulated and has WINDOWS! A great boon to studio artists. Imagine, now we can actually see what we’re doing with natural light!

Come celebrate with us. We will have a special pottery sale, crafts demonstrations, and door prizes awarded each day. We are located at 101 SW Jefferson Street in Albany, Oregon. This is one building in from the corner of 1st and Jefferson, on the east side of the street. Look for the banners and Oregon Crafted sign. Our studio is only open to the public on the first full weekend of the month as part of the Oregon Crafted Studio Tours. The usual hours are 12-5, but check the schedule for this event, since the hours will be slightly different. BTW, Fine Fiber Studio is open other times by appointment only. You can call for an appointment: 1-541-917-3251
