penelope's press needs your votes!

Posted by debbie lee on

hello blog friends!  i recently applied for a small business grant and could really use your help with votes.  while completing the essay portion of the grant application, i got choked up a bit.  i cannot believe how far penelope's press has grown in the past few years.  none of it would have been possible without the encouragement of so many.  i dream of opening a community print shop to offer letterpress workshops... won't you help me get there?

below is the email message i have been sending out--
