So, for our 65th blog, we're celebrating our anniversary and everything handmade with a rundown of our maker features so far and a list of 5 favourites from N2N's storyteller Andie Hartshorne. Here we go!

Maker Stories

Maker stories are the heart of Nook 2 Nook Canada and the Canadian handmade identity at large. Sharing makers' wisdoms, accomplishments, and small business journeys lifts us all up and reminds us why handmade small businesses are so important. We've profiled 29 makers since our very first blog, and we're beyond proud to help them share what makes their handmade businesses special. Check out the slide show below to see them all, and be sure to read their stories on the blog!

Andie's Top 5 Fav Blogs of the Year

Hey, I'm Andie! I'm Nook 2 Nook Canada's Storyteller and the voice behind many of our inspirational + informational blogs. Being a maker myself, I'm passionate about handmade and I understand many of the challenges and triumphs of #makerlife. Being a part of Nook 2 Nook Canada is such an amazing experience. I've met so many talented, incredible makers this past year and I'm beyond inspired by the creativity, strength and resilience present within each of them. One of my jobs here is to help and inspire these makers by delivering relevant content related to the handmade small business experience. For our Nook2Nook-iversary, I wanted to share with you five of my favourites from the past year. Check them out, and let me know which ones you liked best in the comments!

It's been a wonderful year for Nook 2 Nook Canada, and we look forward to the next with anticipation and a clear vision for the bright future of handmade. At the forefront as ever is our mission to connect and inspire, support & strengthen the Canadian maker identity in the hand-made industry. If you'd like to get involved, check out our website.
