“Whatever creativity is, it is in part a solution to a problem.”
— Brian Aldiss, British science fiction writer



In a sad and surprising turn of events, our landlord opted not to renew our lease. It is sort of a long story, but the net result is that we had two weeks' notice and no place to go. Effective June 30, we're homeless.

We're devastated, but the strong support we've received from our customers has given us the resolve to relocate - again. So, things are temporarily in storage and we're looking. It may take some time to find a permanent home (third time is the charm! right?) but we hope it will happen soon.

We will be able to provide parties-to-go during this transition and are available for custom work. Our e-mail and phone numbers are still active and we will keep you up to date via our newsletter. If you have questions or concerns, please let us know. We're here - it's just sort of virtual for the moment.
