A while back I made a few bags such as this one specifically for teachers. Yesterday I received this:
"you made a circular needle case and the ultimate teacher bag for me a while ago. They are both amazing. Your teacher bag fits everything I need and its always easy for me to access. On a side note, I teach an advanced math class for 4th graders and when I started they were really into talking about my bag. It turns out a number of them had been studying the periodic table on their own. It turned into a talking piece and I ended up creating a unit focusing on the math in chemistry. It never would have happened had we not had this conversation about my bag. I know it's a big digression, but it keeps on being useful in so many predictable and unpredictable ways."
Isn't that wonderful? I just love hearing stories like this. We are such a small business that every item we make feels very personal to us and we send each one out hoping that it will be loved and cherished. Hearing stories like this lets us know we are still on the right track.
If you have a story, please share in the comments! We would love to hear from you.
