Crafting Season Begins!

The leaves are turning yellow and customers are getting ready for winter!  Orders have steadily been coming in and I am gearing up for a busy sewing season.

With two active boys and the short Yukon summer, there was no way I was going to spend my days inside crafting.  What a waste that would be!  My summer has been spent enjoying every possible minute outside.  And thankfully all of my customers understood when I told them I wouldn't be making anything until September.

Once I get through my custom order list (four pairs of mittens, two pairs of baby booties and three fleece ponchos) then I need to kick it into high gear to get ready for craft sale time!  Normally I do the Spruce Bog Craft Show in Whitehorse, but I will be on holidays for it this year and will miss it.  Sad, since I do very well there.  Instead, I am aiming to do the 12 Days of Christmas Craft Show in Whitehorse at the Old Fire Hall.  Fingers crossed I get in!  But since it actually lasts 12 days, I am going to need quite the supply of items to be ready for it.

Here is the first custom order complete!  Dyed black moose hide mittens lined with fleece and trimmed with fox.  So fluffy and warm!

Those look great! Have you ever thought about coming to Dawson for one of our Christmas bazaars? The last minute bazaar in December is a really big one!
