October 13 is a special day on the calendar for me. It’s my birthday. It’s also my parent’s anniversary. They got married exactly one year before I was born. I also share my birthday with several dear friends. Happy Birthday Liz, Ashley and Esther! I hope your birthday weekends were as fun as mine.
If that wasn’t enough, October 13 is the workroom’s birthday too! I don’t think I could jam any more wonderful things into one day.
My Tinctory necklace arrived last week and it’s even more precious and delicate in person. I’m so incredibly delighted with subtle colours of the silk and the thread. Thank you, Eva!
p.s. Happy Birthday to Angelune, whose birthday was also this weekend!

Oh! Happy happy birthday! And a very happy anniversary as well — the immense amounts of love and hard work you have poured into your shop are so inspiring! Congratulations, and I wish you continued success. And cake! Lots of cake.
I am trying not to gush too much but I think that this is an appropriate place to do so. We are so lucky to have you!
I would have loved to attend your party tonight but unfortunately, surprise freelance work deadlines beckon… have a wonderful time and I will raise my glass to you tonight over my pizza dinner. xo
HAPPY BIRTHDAY! And here’s to many, many more!
PS that necklace is GORGEOUS!
happy birthday! what a wonderful season of important days for you and your family. i hope it is a grandiose day full of splendid surprises.
Happy belated birthday!!
Funny how a single date can mean so much happiness! 🙂
Happy Birthday to you and The Workroom! I wanted to be there last night, had it on my calendar and everything but was still sitting at my desk at work at 8.25pm 🙁
Hope it was glorious! I’m sad I missed cake.
Congratulations on your first year. I think what you’ve done, and are doing, at The Workroom is wonderful and its one of the joys of my life to be able to spend time there. Thank you!!!!!
karyn, john and i had such a lovely time last night, and we are very much inspired by what you have created and what you are doing for everyone.
i remember googling for sewing classes last year and nothing came up that i really liked. when i finally finished university, i decided to take up sewing classes and once again googled for sewing classes in toronto. and then i found the workroom and was immediately drawn to its really warm and friendly and cozy atmosphere.
the workroom is really, truly special and am very thankful and very glad to have met you and be a part of it!
congratulations karyn! 🙂
congrats on a wonderful year at the workroom!
Happy Birthday as well and thanks for the shout-out to me!
