January News

Happy new year, dear friends! 

What with welcoming Phoebe to the world, Chris to the shop, and over 2,000 Passport visitors to Ashland, we had quite a lively 2017 here at Postscript!  We hosted workshops on calligraphy, watercolor painting, photography, and paper garlands, held camps for kids on bookbinding and poetry, and participated in art walks featuring Nebraska quilters, photographers, and authors. We hosted our first poetry reading and started a monthly story time led by community volunteers. We talked bullet journals and stamps. We printed custom invitations and cards and sewed up a pile of books. And we introduced a number of new vendors and have continued to search for goods that are just the thing for yourself or the people that you love.  

Postscript is just over two years old, and I am happy to report that we still love what we’re doing. 2018 will take us in some new directions that will expand upon the services already available, and we will continue to introduce more of a literary focus to what we do. To that end, I am relaunching a project I established as my MFA thesis called Poetry by Post.  It's changed a bit, but the essentials are the same:  there will be four mailings over 2018, all of which will feature Ted Kooser's exceptional work.  Click on the image above to get the whole scoop!

We are also eager to bring in more great instructors while also continuing to offer established classes. As we plan the upcoming months, we would also love to hear from you! What would you like to see more of? Please share your ideas and let us know how Postscript can better serve you.

One of my personal resolutions this year after being very home-bound with a newborn in 2017 is to travel more.  To that end, I am sending this newsletter off from the city of big shoulders (polar vortex be damned!) and am hoping that perching myself there for a few days will offer just the vantage point and fresh air that it’s nice to take in this time of year.

Hoping you are ringing in the new year in whatever style suits you best. Cocktails and sequins or tea and wool socks, may 2018 bring you all the beautiful things that the world has on offer.
