The world economy has changed dramatically in the last ten years and the United
States is no longer a stable economy that can support the arts like it used
to. As other emerging economies begin to have more disposable income,
they also begin to show an interest in the handmade lifestyle. I
figured if we all banded together and drove people to the same place, it would
be easier to be found. My mantra has been "Together we can do great things."
