Winter Holidays and friendship

Tis the season and I have been busy sewing. One concept that is impossible to ignore in my business: the customer comes first! I agree this is how it should be, and do my best to meet the expectation.  BUT right behind shoppers are family and friends, If you are in this category, you are on my mind. I just finished a gift for my granddaughter. I can't wait to give it to her.'s a secret.

I have one dear friend, Dawn, who gave me a solstice gift early. She repainted my store sign. I love the way it looks in the snow. We had painted it just black on white in the past. The blue really makes it special.

Most of you will only see this sign on this blog. I work out of my house, but sell on line or at Swift Waters Artisans on Main Street in Willimantic. This sign makes me so happy though, I may have to have a house party, just so you can see it in person.

Enjoy the season.
