I have received so many encouraging replies to my invitations to join Artisan Ontario (and Artisan Canada) that I thought it was time to start sharing some of them. I want to thank all of you who responded to my emails with this kind of positive reinforcement. It means a lot and it makes me want to keep going – and to make this site really work for all artisans!

Thank you.
