It is with mixed feelings that I will be closing the physical building for the Quilt Studio in Afton.
Tom and I have purchased a Commercial Building in Chestertown MD. We are turning it into an art studio space, called the SKIPJACK ART STUDIOS. My Bernina Long Arm and all that goes with it, will soon reside in the DREAM CASTLE QUILT STUDIO, inside our new building at 329 Cannon Street Chestertown, MD. We also purchased an historic 1869 home close to downtown, that needs renovation. We think it will be at least a year before we con consider moving full time to Chestertown.
So the Quilt Studio in Afton, will live on for a while, in the second floor studio of the Afton House.
I will continue to blog and update everyone on projects I am working on. The store will eventually migrate over to the new website: https://dreamcastlequiltstudio.gallery/. The Afton Studio building will become a rental property, it’s a nice little studio apartment. I am hoping to find a couple willing to live there that can do our lawn maintenance and house cleaning, too! .
