ORDERING AND SHIPPING DEPARTMENT CLOSED –July 19 - July 31, 2018
Blue Lion's Shipping Department (aka Janita) will be closed while Janita is teaching at Dulcimer U in North Carolina. Orders placed during this time can't be acknowledged and will not ship until after July 31.
In addition, Bob (who will be handling everything here at Blue Lion and at home) may not be able to return emails or voice mails promptly but he will do his best. We appreciate your patience and understanding.
CURRENT PRODUCTION UPDATE
We will be starting work on the Summer 2018 production run soon; we have some shop maintenance issues to resolve but hope to begin by July 9th. Thanks to all our customers for your patience.
All slots for the Summer and Fall 2018 and Winter 2019 runs have been filled.
For those of you who are considering ordering a dulcimer you can place the order any time; we don't charge the deposit until we actually begin work on the dulcimer but it secures your place in the production run.
We want to thank all of you for your patience--we know it is hard to have to wait so long for your instrument.
Many of our customers have inquired as to how the inlays are done and expressed an interest in learning more about this art. Janita will be teaching a week long workshop in inlay for luthiers, woodworkers and jewelers at the John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, NC from September 9th through the 14th, 2018.
The class is limited to 8 participants and there are a few openings left. For more information go to:
and enter the term "inlay" in the search box.
Feel free to contact Janita directly if you have questions or need more information.
