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.

Bond’s Butter Crunch

Alyson helped us figure out the best way to label our items and it was decided that string through the tag is the way to go.  Done!!  All of the displays look so pretty, can’t wait to see how she incorporates our woodworking. Cutting Boards, Cribbage Boards, Serving Trays and 1 Picture Frame (more to come if it’s a hit).

Our 1st gallery contractual agreement, super excited, but a little nervous!! Fingers are crossed that we fit it nicely and do well with Alyson and her fabulous group of talented artisans.
