IMPORTANT - READ FIRST
ORDERING AND SHIPPING DEPARTMENT CLOSED –9/7 through 9/18
Blue Lion's Shipping Department (aka Janita) will be closed while Janita is teaching the John C. Campbell Folk School in North Carolina. Orders placed during this time can't be acknowledged and will not ship until after September 19th.
In addition, Robert (who will be handling everything here at Blue Lion and at home with no help from anyone and certainly not the cats!) may not be able to respond to emails or voice mails promptly but he will do his best. We appreciate your patience and understanding.
TEMPORARY PAUSE IN ACCEPTING ORDERS
Due to an unfortunate series of injuries we are running behind on our current production run and realize that the time frame for all future production runs is going to be affected. When you're a two person shop and one of us goes out with an injury it obviously affects all of our projected timelines.
We don't know how long it will take to resolve this situation and can't predict when the current run will be finished (although we are still working on the instruments as we are able) or when the subsequent runs will begin.
We are temporarily suspending accepting any new orders until we have a better idea of what the next several months will do to our work schedule. We have neither the desire nor intention of retiring any time soon so rest assured Blue Lion is NOT closing its doors.
We thank you for your understanding and patience; as soon as we know more we'll post updates on this page.
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.
