It's the Shelburne Museum that has a print shop, in Shelburne, VT, just a
couple of miles south of Burlington on Rooute 7. We used to be able to use
the shop on a co-op basis, exchanging time working on the museum pieces for
time to work on our own projects. I think that the co-op died out about four
years ago. I'd love to see it revived. I spent many a happy summer evening
hour cleaning and repairing a Civil War era press that could be carried on
two soldiers' backs.
