About 6 weeks ago, a most wonderful thing happened here: I finally hired a studio assistant! Amy Shade has a background in sewing and organic fabric, and has been keeping things humming along beautifully here. Many of you may have gotten to know her a bit over email, and she’s been packing and shipping most of the orders as well. Welcome, Amy! Here’s a photo, so you can put a face with the person on the other end of you order or email (or even phone – she does that too sometimes!), and a little Q and A so that you know something about her.
Hey Amy! What do you like to do when you’re not holding down the fort at Monaluna?
A: I like to sew, hike, and I like turtles and cats. I read a hell of a lot, too!
Q: Do you have any pets?
A: I have a black cat named Momo.
Q: Do you have any favorite designers?
A: I adore Lotta Jansdotter and I really like Orla Kiely, too.
Q: What’s your favorite spot in the world?
A: Karuizawa, Japan. We used to live in Japan and had a cabin there – it’s a beautiful place.
Q: Do you have a favorite project or thing you’ve made?
A: I’m pretty happy with the upholstery job i did on my couch recently!

Questionf or Amy, why are you not still living in Japan. I’m not sure that I’d ever come back. Looking forward to hearing more about your projects.
