Gearing Up

First things first – what should Creative Woodworking focus on this year? More galleries? More events? More online? Well, the answer is yes, yes, and yes.

Our 1st event of the year is right around the corner, and luckily for us, it’s close by. 2/11/17 @ The Climb Fitness Center, Mt. Ascutney Resort, Brownsville, VT. If you are in the area, or can be, please join us.

Coming into the New Year, we have 6 galleries to visit and stock up. Today (for example), we were able to visit Long River Gallery & Gifts. They have a new, 2nd location in White River Jct., VT and it is a bright beautiful space. On Main Street, next to the Hotel Coolidge.

Goodbye 2016

Merry – Happy and all of that, what a year this has been! It went too fast in our opinion.

As a business, we continue to learn as we go. Creative Woodworking grew to 8 gallery affiliates this year but 2 are closing, so we are down to 6. That’s okay.

Bud and I also still have our full time day jobs, and that’s okay too. van de Ven Construction and Mt. Ascutney Hospital is where you can find us during the week.

A Visit To Arabella Gallery & Gifts

Arabella Gallery & Gifts is located at 65 Main Street in historic Windsor, VT, and is our closest affiliation! Even before Creative Woodworking was “official” we wondered about gallery connections, combined with events, how it would all work. Dianne and David at Arabella were always helpful and encouraging. Thank you both!
