I HAVE FOUND A SPACE! I can leave Mellwood!
With the recent problems
I have with Mellwood Art Center with my equipment being damaged and, with the help of a realtor, I have located a space I can move into right away.
This has nearly everything I am looking for: sink, bathroom, electric, room for soap curing racks, storage for supplies and most importantly, room to grow. It is in a quiet area, SAFE and I have an added bonus of having a space to back in my trailer, drop it off and head home for the night after an event... which is (added plus-plus bonus) is less than 10 minutes from home.
I also have room to teach my much-requested soap-making classes at this facility once I am settled and I also have a small area for retail.
I will need some assistance from a moving company to pick up the workshop and move (workshop fixtures, supplies, etc). While we talked about it, my taller half and I cannot do this by ourselves. I have a shoulder injury and he cannot lift with just our truck, car and a trailer. Movers are a very viable option for me to get this done completely, and as quickly as possible to restart my production again.
I am requesting $1500. This will cover movers, supplies to move (boxes, etc) and possibly buying out the remainder of the lease at Mellwood if they decide to pick a snit. :)
Please donate generously, I will need this soon once I talk to Mellwood about terminating my lease which is up in October.
With this move, I can see myself setting myself up for the future.
