The Circle of Life Continues!

Here we are on the first day of the new year - January 1, 2010!  Folks always seem to be so pumped about all the great possibilities a new year holds.  I must say, I actually feel more open to the unknown this year than I have in other years.  My natural tendency is to look back and mourn all that was left unfinished in the old year, but I think 2010 is going to be amazing!

The year 2009, while challenging for most people in some ways, was a mostly great year for Textures and our little band of independent artisans - and we have you to thank for that!  Our customers are great people, and have been very supportive!  It is encouraging for all creative souls to find an appreciative audience, and your continued trips to our little gift shop on Locke St. South in Hamilton keeps our group of about 50+ local artisans fired up with creativity to make something even more amazing than the last great creation!

Our group is much like a family, and we do have our occasional squabbles (if you have a sibling, or you have two or more children you know what I'm talking about!) - any group of individuals is bound to have disagreements about the direction the whole group should take.  But one thing we always agree on is our love of creating the best we can for our customers!

Thank you for all your support and encouragement in the last year, and we look forward to welcoming you back for a visit in 2010!

We are starting off our new year with a show of all that is colourful and bright - "Passion and Panache" starts tomorrow, and is sure to banish the grey days of early January.  Hope to see you soon!
