I was fortunate enough to visit Pioneer House during a short trip to Knoxville last week. This place is so full of magic... in the form of wood type, lead type, art, and the amazing Julie Belcher. Julie is one of the nicest people I've met. She happily gave us a tour of the shop and told us lots about the process. I tried to snap pics while my eyes were exploding with happiness. (I asked for permission FIRST of course)
If you're ever in Knoxville look up Pioneer House and say hi to Julie. Oh, and I almost forgot to mention – this is the former Yee-Haw Industries. Julie was a partner at Yee-Haw. Pioneer House is her new endeavor after Yee-Haw closed in 2012.
