Farewell to 2013

2013 has been very good to me in many ways. Cariboo Handwoven grew in sales, website hits, blog pageviews, and general interest in my community. My plan for 2014 has many exciting challenges, such as my show with potter Joan Beck at the Station House Gallery next November, continued blogging of my projects and thoughts, restocking of my studio and three local outlets with blankets and towels, and more.

Thank you very, very much to my sister, Alison, in Ottawa who has been instrumental in the growth and success of Cariboo Handwoven.

Thank you to Pat for all the systems assistance and advice I've needed over the year, and for his wise perspectives on many things.

Thank you to all the inspiration and guidance from artists like weaver Laura Fry, marketing coach Alyson Stanfield and self-described writer-who-draws Austin Kleon.

And a huge THANK YOU to my customers whose support has been wonderful and which I have so appreciated. All your written feedback is posted on my bulletin board or kept on file electronically. :)

Here are some of my favourite wool blankets from 2013:
