Anise & Dill
Nestled in the mountains near Whistler BC, I started my "reusables" business Dec, 2019. I wanted to help people eliminate plastics from their life and make the switch from plastics to fabrics (my favourite!). I have a BFA in Textiles and spent the last 20 years exploring fabrics, clothing design, natural dyeing and felting (www.francesfelt.com).
When the pandemic hit Canada in March 2020 I quickly got going making masks for my community. I was worried about all the frontline workers and figured the best way for them to stay safe was to protect themselves with a mask. Soon many people were reaching out and I couldn't keep up with the sewing. I had worked thru all my own personal fabric stash and luckily for me my small town has a fabric store! I ended up buying all my mask fabrics from that wonderful lady. She was so happy for my business during lockdown and I couldn't have done it without her help. It was a win win situation! I started hiring some amazing ladies in my community to help me sew and put my kids (Anise and Dylan) to work while they were out of school during lockdown!
My amazing husband's business is in the Travel Industry (if you ever want an amazing trip to Belize: www.islandexpeditions.com) so things were shifting for him as well. He started taking over the tech side of my business and we were off to the races!
THANK YOU for your support!
