The best resource for great local shopping!

There is amazing stuff close by – local artisans and independently owned retailers, cool things to do and eat, and great charities to support. It’s good for the economy, the environment and the soul.

Christine Marie Ford - Fiber Artist

Christine Marie Ford has been a vendor on 100 Mile Finds for quite a while and we just wanted to give her a nod in this space to remind you of her talent. I met Christine this past week when we rendezvoused so I could pick up some of her pieces for the Evergreen market where we will showcase her work, Aug 20 and 27.
It amazes me how varied Christine's pieces are - her products range from fabric vessels to jewellery and leather work. Featured here are her "Words Apart" wallhanging and her leather travel journal. Christine is committed to her career as an artist. Recently Christine has experienced an ordeal after a bike accident where getting treatment and recovery were very difficult. We are so pleased to see her healing and getting back to the studio - Hang in there Christine!

  1. Wow thanks for the kind mention. I saw my surgeon today and got the thumbs up to start strength training. Best wishes with the shows! Wish I could be there.
