I’m delighted to share the news that my husband and I are expecting our first baby in late November. Obviously, this will mean the temporary closure of my business. However, I hope to resume in new premises after my maternity leave which will last between approximately 8 – 12 months. Please find below an outline of my intentions for the studio in the coming months:
Acceptance of work
I anticipate beginning maternity leave around the last week of October. To ensure that I can complete and return work before that date, I may not be able to accept work from mid-August onwards. However, as some items take longer than others to treat, I will assess each item on its own basis so please feel free to contact me even after that date to discuss anything that you would like treated soon. I may still be able to help.
I will continue to offer most treatments with the exception of the following:
- Very mouldy items.
- Items measuring over 480mm x 580 mm which require washing, (items above this size which don’t require washing may be fine, depending on what is required).
- Sellotape removal, due to the toxicity of the solvents often required.
If you have any items which you would like treated, please feel free to contact me as soon as possible.
I will attend the Alnwick PBFA book fair on Saturday 24th August, ( http://membership.pbfa.org/Webtools/eventdetails.asp?eventid=ALN/13 ), however I won’t be attending Tynemouth market again until after my maternity leave. Quarterly newsletters will continue throughout my maternity leave.
My email address, firstname.lastname@example.org, will continue to be checked so please do contact me to ask for any free advice regarding your items while I am on leave. Updates on a re-start date and a location will be given on this website in the future. Should I find I have to amend the above timescales, I will post an update here as soon as possible.
