And We’re (nearly) DONE!

Jocelyn and Betty next to the new old window, next to the new window.

They say that time contracts when you’re busy, and I would have to say this feels true, especially of everything that’s happened since the close of our Indiegogo restoration campaign last December. It’s an understatement to say we were successful. We raised a whopping $17,429, a full 128% of our goal, and only a little […]

Let’s make this a tradition!

Since I arrived at The Sherwood Press 26 years ago, I have always thought we should open up for Halloween, but in all those years we never had, until last year.
