Saying Goodbye – Shop Closing May 30

After a year of illness and other personal hassles, we’ve decided to retire from the pigment business.

This was a painful but necessary decision.

What we’ll do next is still up in the air while John recovers from a seizure and hospital stay.

We may try to sell the whole business. Or sell it off piecemeal. Or…..??

May 20, 2019 is the last day the AEP is open for business.

We will fill orders until May 30.

Please order earlier than that for best service.

  1. I’m so sorry to learn about your family struggles. I wish I would have discovered your shop before now! Even though I am a new customer, I am very sorry to see you go. I wish your family the best of luck, good health and happiness!!

    1. Thank you so much for your sympathy. Our family struggles aren’t such a surprise if you know that John is 82 and I’m 85. Yeah, I’m a cougar! We are discussing with an online pigment teacher to sell the bulk of our colors. If this happens, we’ll be sure to tell everyone. Also, Griffin Dyeworks & Fiber Arts will carry some of our colors, for awhile. I’m keeping some, of course, for my own workshops and classes.

  2. Bjo, sorry to hear about struggles with health. Please message me on FB.

  3. This has been a wonderful project! It gave me a rare opportunity to learn about the personalities and quirks of a wide range of pigments. I just saw the notice that you are closing. I wish you well in future endeavors and thank you for this one! I am putting together a final order today; sorry to skate so close to your final line, but I’m glad I saw this before you closed for good.
