Local artist Janet Holaday has been a part of our family since we first opened, almost 25 years ago.   Her artwork on paper was exquisitely beautiful, and her artwork on textiles brightens kitchens around the globe.

Please let us know which designs you like best!  When you order, please write in the order notes block the designs that you like best, and assuming all are in stock, those are the ones we will send.  Please also note if substitutions among those designs are ok, in case we’re out of one of them.  We do sometimes run low right before new orders arrive.

Janet’s daughter Casey Holaday is an amazing jeweler, and her son in law, Aaron Hammer, is a very gifted woodturner.

Janet’s latest love is silk dying, creating silk scarves that are luscious and beautiful. Both the kitchen towels and scarves make beautiful gifts that are really appreciated.

Screen printing

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Screen printing is a printing technique that uses a woven mesh to support an ink-blocking stencil to receive a desired image. The attached stencil forms open areas of mesh that transfer ink or other printable materials which can be pressed through the mesh as a sharp-edged image onto a substrate. A fill blade or squeegee is moved across the screen stencil, forcing or pumping ink through the mesh openings to wet the substrate during the squeegee stroke. Basically, it is the process of using a mesh-based stencil to apply ink onto a substrate, whether it be t-shirts, posters, stickers, vinyl, wood, or other material.

Screen printing is also a stencil method of print making in which a design is imposed on a screen of polyester or other fine mesh, with blank areas coated with an impermeable substance. Ink is forced into the mesh openings by the fill blade or squeegee and onto the printing surface during the squeegee stroke. As the screen rebounds away from the substrate the ink remains on the substrate. It is also known as silkscreen, serigraphy, and serigraph printing. One color is printed at a time, so several screens can be used to produce a multicoloured image or design.

Enjoy!
