Megan did some research this year because we wanted to have a goody bag for every participant in our fall workshop during the Fibre Arts Festival. This event is our biggest and funnest (is that a word? well it should be!) and we gather forty or fifty rug hookers from around North America and have a great big workshop event. We prepare for it all year long as part of the Nova Scotia Fibre Art Festival. It is a big deal for us.
This year we decided we wanted to give out bags filled with a few goodies . The other day I told you about Seafoam Lavendar Farm and how Suzy sent us her Smooth Moves Hand Cream. Since then I have also bought some Facial cream from her that my cousin swears by for redness. I love it that she sells her products in small $5 containers so you can try it for awhile.
Other businesses sent beautiful samples. We had trial size Aveda conditioners and hand creams from Damaris , the lovely spa across the street from my studio. How convenient is that. You can book a massage when you get here.
Katherine , from the fleece Artist sent every participant a beautiful hand dyed fleece bundle. I have been dealing with Katherine for years and she makes a beautiful product. Her yarns and fleece are incredible. Keep in mind this winter she is coming for a free event at the studio and it is a wine and wool tasting. It is free but you must pre register so call us if you want to come . It is Friday, Jan. 17, from 4 to 6pm.
We also had loose tea samples from Lady Baker’s Tea Trolley,and some yarn samples from Mac Ausland’s, both of which were really appreciated.
So hopefully next year I hope you’ll come to our big October 2014 event, Simply Modern, where we celebrate my new book on modern design for hooked rugs and the 7th Annual Nova Scotia Fibre Art Festival.
Here are the links to the lovely businesses who helped fill this year’s goody bag…..
We really appreciated it as did our participants. Thanks a million.
