This summer, Jan and I have spent a number of days boating our local waters on Dulwen. We became reacquainted with Pender and Saturna Islands. Pender offered a couple of interesting venues for the boaters and woodworkers alike.
Firstly there was the first ever Hope Bay Boat Fest in June. This event was a great opportunity for wooden boat aficionados. Stay tuned for 2014, it will only be better and West Wind hopes to be involved.
Secondly, the Fall Fair in August offered a slice of old country style farm fun. Congratulations to customers, David MacKenzie and Sergei Petrov for their winning entries in the Wood Working Division.
This year’s trip was again at Montague Harbour, Galiano Island. A beautiful site and what gorgeous weather we had! Got to witness an amazing sunset and went boating around the islands. We are so lucky to live in such a beautiful place!
Come out and support the Graduating Class of Camosun’s Fine Furniture program. On now, until June 28th, 8am-8pm daily.
Joel Radford, Flooring Manager says:
“Overall the show seemed worthwhile. Of the three days Saturday was the busiest with lots of people. Lots of newbies discovering West Wind products for the first time and took brochures/cards. The improved booth had a positive impact. The countertops etc. showed a more fleshed out picture of our products and were a great way to engage with attendees.”
We’re expanding to the Vancouver Home/Garden/Design Show. There are choices folks: Spring vs. Fall. Do you have a thought? Where there’s an opinion, there’s a willing ear. Let us know by answering this poll:
