Luckily, during the transition I was able to find another, affordable work space in Harrisville about 20 minutes away. It doesn't fit all of my textile equipment, unfortunately, so while in there I focus only on the design process and on hand-looming. Alas, the sewing machine and rotary cutter have had to remain largely packed up and out of the way back at the house.
Oh, but the views in, out and around this rented space are breathtaking.
The building is perched next to a gorgeous river and right across the street from Harrisville Designs, the vendor I use to purchase all of my wool. I don't have internet in here (intentionally), so when I arrive it's very, very quiet and ideal for long stretches of focused attention. Other fiber artists also work in the building, so I do hear the peaceful hum of their sewing machines and sergers all day long. It's one of the most tranquil, productive work spaces I've ever had in my life.
On some days living in the country feels just one click too slow for me. But then I have access to these kinds of buildings, spaces and towns and am reminded again that every place has its pluses and minuses.
