An Important Announcement regarding DASHERIE

Calligraphy Wedding Details in DASHERIE

Issue 4 has shipped and begun to hit mailboxes this week. It’s always very exciting for me after months of planning, editing, and designing for others to see the issue. This issue in particular was very difficult to pull together but the final result was worth every minute.

Since readers have started to receive the issue, I thought it best to communicate all at once, that this will be the last issue of DASHERIE for a while. When I began this adventure, I was not homeschooling and I felt it was the perfect time to do what I had always dreamed of doing. However, things quickly changed and I found my family obligations piling up like never before.

Creating DASHERIE has been the single most rewarding professional endeavor I have done yet. It is a dream come true. And while I have to now change gears and let that dream go for a while, I have no regrets.

I would like to thank each and every one of you for your incredible support. I feel your love and it has made all the difference.


P.S. There are still a small amount of Issues 1,2, & 3 remaining but they are selling quickly and are almost sold out. Issue 4 is now shipping. Don’t miss this amazing issue!

  1. Hi Erica,

    I was so excited to receive my issue yesterday! Thank you so much for such a lovely magazine filled with so much beauty, inspiration and information. I know that creating something so beautiful is a labor of love and time consuming and I totally understand your reason for taking time off for family. We will all miss the publication and thank your family for allowing us to share your tremendous talent.

    All my best,

  2. Erica,
    Of course, as soon as the magazine arrived, I comb through it and I always read letter from the editor first…my jaw sank, I was deeply saddened ~ you have brought joy and introduced us to fabulous artists. At least there is hope since you say it will be gone for “awhile”.
    Thank you so much ~ it must have taken so much of your precious time and energy and I appreciate it very much…
    Sending you gratitude and would love to ‘see’ you soon!

  3. Thank you, Erica, for creating a fabulous, high quality publication, containing exceptional artistic lettering works created by some of the best calligraphers around, yourself included! While I fully understand why Dasherie must be put aside for now, I hope that those of us who loved it may see it return sometime in the future. Family should come first, and as you noted in you letter to your readers, your children are growing up & you want to enjoy every minute of it that you can. You certainly have a lot on your plate, and your decision is a wise one, though so many of us will miss Dasherie ! So hug your kids & enjoy these precious years with them. We are willing to wait & hope to see it return one day. Kudos for creating such a wonderful publication, and for an equally wonderful Flourish Forum! I’m impressed at much how you’ve been able to accomplish with all the responsibilities you listed.God bless you!
