Pretend it is last Friday. Climb the stairs to the second floor and this is what grabs your attention! Marlene gave us a wonderful tour of her workroom. Marlene , along with any customer input, designs the finishing. She has 8 women that make her vision a reality. All the threads you see, Marlene hand dies at home adding one tespoon of dye at a time. Her husband winds the thread back onto the cones. She starts with an area of various blocking boards and a steamer. There was a table with a band saw to cut shapes from styraform. There was a spot for spray & hand painting round wooden balls used as feet and heads. There were finished pieces to admire and work in progress throughout. Tomorrow, I'll include more photos.
