Brian and Marc from the Organic Garden Center were in Blossburg this week, teaching some very lucky students about hydroponics.
If you haven’t stopped in to the Organic Garden Center lately, drop by sometime—it’s a gorgeous shop staffed by people who are always willing to share their knowledge. (The OGC is at the corner of Rose and Park, on the first floor of the Pajama Factory.)

Shana Eichenberg is a tenant who’s used her space in the Pajama Factory to build her bath, body and hair care business from the ground up.
Bathvs, (pronounced ‘bathus’) is all made by hand in her 4th floor studio, where Shana formulates the recipes, produces each batch, packages and ships orders all over the world and works on marketing, both through Facebook, Etsy and now her shiny new website. (She also sells her products at Roots Hair Studio by Karen in building 6 of the factory!)
We’re happy and proud to have Shana and Bathvs as one of our many small businesses at the Pajama Factory—we can’t wait to see what *you* will do here!
Here’s her new site—go take a look!
Tammy Daneker has been posting some gorgeous work on her Facebook page — take a look and give her page a ‘like’ to follow what’s happening in her Pajama Factory studio
(Great work, Tammy!)

Cliff Stevens and his wife Veruschka moved to the Pajama Factory from Philadelphia not long ago. Cliff is the brains behind CultureSpots, a program to help young people (and old!) gain a new appreciation for the treasures found in museums. Check out this wonderful interview with Lynn Berkowitz of The Barnes Foundation:

We stopped in to see one of our newest tenants, Dan Berberich the other day.
Dan’s primary medium has traditionally been drawing, but he’s been getting back into painting, now that he’s made his studio at the Pajama Factory.

Figure Drawing sessions start on Tuesday November 18th, from 6–8pm, and run every Tuesday at the same time until December 9th. (Another 4-week series will start mid-January). Live models: male, female, costumed/clothed, and nude. All artists welcome, 18 and older.
$40 for all four sessions (payment due November 7th) or $12 at the door. BYODS—bring your own drawing supplies. All sessions will take place in Studio 15, on the 2nd floor of the Pajama Factory.

There’s an excellent new blog in town, one with a heavy emphasis on art and entertainment, which is, of course, something very near and dear to our hearts: PortObserver.com.
Started by Pajama Factory alumnus Matthew Parrish, it contains some very high quality writing in a format that allows them to dig deeper and find the story behind the story. Case in point is this piece on Tim Miller’s piece at Converge Gallery.
Go read that piece and put the site in your list of daily-read bookmarks. After that, head over to their Facebook page and click “like”.

Factory denizen Todd Rice is the subject of a new article over on Port Observer, a great looking new site focusing on our area.
(Thanks for the tip, Matthew Parrish!)

Todd Rice’s ‘Alien Sanctuary’ at the Pajama Factory
By MATTHEW PARRISH, firstname.lastname@example.org
On Facebook, artist Todd Rice often posts pictures of movie monsters — the Creature from the Black Lagoon, for example — encroaching upon scantily clad women frozen in horror or engaged in epic battles (King King verses a giant snake!). He has also shared amusing behind-the-scenes photos of a human dwarfing Godzilla simply by standing next to the surprisingly small, toy-sized creature, and Ultraman hugging his large, lizard-like foe. It’s the type of imagery one would expect and hope for from a guy who grew up spending his Friday and Saturday nights glued to the television watching old horror movies.
Be sure to stop by Chad’s show at the Haas Gallery of Art at 400 East Second Street in Bloomsburg! Looks great, Chad!

At first glance, this rather suspicious-looking collection of laboratory glassware and slowly dripping fluid may look like something from Heisenberg’s laboratory, but it’s actually what’s known as a ‘Cold Brew’ coffee making system.
When you cold brew coffee, ice water is very slowly dripped through coarse-ground coffee beans. The result is a very flavorful coffee that’s much lower in acid and lacking the bitterness of the coffee you’re probably used to drinking.
Stop by Way Cool Beans to give it a try!
