Sad Soucie move

The Sans Soucie studio is moving to the USA.  To Atlanta, Georgia to be exact. 

Two weeks from today, I will be departing for Atlanta and will be the visiting lecturer in Textiles at the Welch School of Art at Georgia State University.

This opportunity presented itself in the last week and I was invited to be the visiting lecturer for the next year with the option to renew for another three. 
The most appealing aspect about this offer is that I will have an opportunity to work with hosiery mills in the area. Given that it has become a challenge to work with mills here in Canada, this is exactly what was needed in order to allow for this work and process to grow. 

It was a difficult decision to make to relocate but it has become quite clear that this is the right path for me and this work to take.  This is not to say I will not return. In fact, my goal is to open a textile mill as I strongly believe in bringing textile production back to Canada.  I fully support the reshoring of garment production, however, I am seeing very little movement in the reshoring of textile production.  Between the states of North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia there are dozens of mills still in production, knitting and weaving.  Needless to say, this is an opportunity for creative exploration, learning and growth. 

With that being said, I will be hosting a studio event on August 16th 5-10pm and on August 17th 12-6pm. 1889 Powell St. ( near Victoria Dr.)

For those of you in Vancouver, this will be a chance to say good bye in person. We welcome you to join us and share a story about your Sans Soucie garment.  This will be your last chance to pick up a piece of Canadian made Sans Soucie for some time.  I will be bringing all my Canadian produced waste to the US and work will be available online for purchase during this transition. 

For those who are not in Vancouver, starting on Monday August 12-20th we will be posting work for sale on our etsy site for purchase.

We will have new work at full retail pricing, unheard of deals and many things available at wholesale prices!

If anyone would like to book an appointment that is unable to attend out event next weekend please email or call the studio 604.428.2808

Thank you to everyone in the last 10 years that have supported the development of this work.  Many great achievements were attained through your support.

I look forward to hearing from you and seeing you! Please share and invite your friends!
