Eleven Years in Business

Back in April, we celebrated our 11th year in business by hosting our annual student art show. Every year when it comes time for me to write the post re-capping this annual celebration, I find myself at a loss of words. How can I possibly say the magnitude of our gratitude to all of you? What words could come close to expressing how blessed we are to be surrounded by such a sweet community of students, customers, and friends? 

To each of you, thank you. Whether you come in and browse and tell your friends about us, or take workshops with us regularly, thank you.

Running a small business is hard. It means working 12,16,18 hour days. It means getting things wrong but trying again the next day. It means putting a lot on the line, but receiving so, so, so much more than you ever expected. We are so honored to serve customers who, to our endless surprise, return to the store time and time again and turn into friends. We never expected to make it to eleven years, not because we doubted ourselves, but because we’ve never exactly seen ourselves as ‘businesswomen’. We may be good at dyeing and felting and all this ‘crafty’ stuff, but when we made this shot in the dark, we didn’t have a lot of experience in running a business. We have learned so much in the last eleven years, and every year we continue to learn and grow and expand in ways we never even dreamed of. We simply wouldn’t be on this journey if it weren’t for all of you. Thank you so much to all of you.
