The shop is open
July 18, 2011
Some scenes from my workspace in the family room yesterday afternoon. Fabric scraps work well for an impromptu coaster, in case you were wondering.
I've just re-opened the House on Hill Road Shop. It's newly stocked with patchwork camera straps in six different colorways. I had a lot of fun putting these colorways together. It had been over six months since I last sat down to make camera straps and I had forgotten just how much I enjoy pairing prints and colors. And as I was getting the shop ready to go, I was amazed to see that I have now made 40 different fabric combinations into camera straps. It seems so crazy - 40? My god- that is a lot! Please take a look, if you are so inclined. I appreciate all of your continued support. My blog readers and customers really are the best. You know it.
go erin go! they're fantastic, as always!

My sister and I love ours....
I can't believe how lucky I was that you had your one and only pink colorway ever on the day that I got mine. I'm so lucky.

So excited! I actually clicked over right when you opened the shop and got my first choice of colorways. Although, I'd love to have one to match each day/mood...

Thank you, Erin. I just received my strap in the mail today. I am so delighted! I ordered the orange color way, and it suits me so well. The width is terrific, as I really don't like a wide strap.

Third time is the charm. I always seem to be too late to get a strap, but this time I made it and got my first choice (the one with the bikes.) The straps arrived yesterday and I am so happy. However, I am wondering if they are washable? Thank you for shipping them SO fast!

Hi Liz, the camera straps can be hand washed and laid flat to dry. You can touch up the fabric part with an iron if it needs it. I'm so glad you are happy with it. Erin

I just got my camera strap (the one with the bike fabric) in the mail a few days ago and I love it so! I find I snap photos much more often now that I have something beautiful to hang around my neck. Thank you so much, Erin!
