Gwen is famous for her block prints and poetry, all nature-based. Nature is always a big inspiration for me so I have always felt myself to be a kindred spirit. Plus, I absolutely adore the look of prints anyway. Maybe I'll go into print making after I'm done with sewing and quilting.
I had pictured a little cabin off in the woods but what I got was a fairly sophisticated set up including its own print shop with press men who have been working there for over 40 years and over 20 years. That's some serious job commitment. I think it's pretty cool that people who knew her personally are carrying on her work. In my mind that makes everything that much more authentic.
I also couldn't help but notice the way nature was incorporated into the product displays and as wall decor.
Just for some additional incentive for those in the mood to shop, I found everything very reasonably priced. The only issue I had was choosing what to purchase! Where to begin?
As a final touch, they package your purchase in brown kraft paper with a spring of evergreen on the top. Lovely!
