Hello to those returning and to those new to our place in the universe. Many of you have been following the development and tinkering that Candy Reedy, Beaver Creek Consultants, Constant
and Patient Keeper of the Crowe Sisters site, has been performing behind the scene.
Many have asked, "How did you get your business name?@ It was some time ago, it wasn’t very simple, but in reflection it was perfectly simple and direct. For a long, long time Sue had
been making these incredible polymer shapes. They were in every color and sometimes the swirling and sparkle was too much for me and I would beg her for one. "No!@ Miss Sue would say. "They aren't very good,@
she would mutter. Now, here is something you don=t know about Sue. She is a closet teaser. My good friend Sue has this bowl, it=s huge, I mean really, really big.
Slowly that bowl filled up to heaping with polymer beads. Occasionally I would work up the courage to go back where I had failed before and timidly ask to buy one of her trinkets. "No, "Miss Sue would say. "They aren’t very good,@
she would mutter.
A life time later she finally agreed to sell me some of her baubles. I ran home like a rat heading from the cheese clutching my goodies. I beaded and beaded, I oohed and aahed. I sold the pieces. I flaunted the fact that I sold pieces
with her work to her; you could practically hear the nails on the blackboard.
It went on like that way for sometime. Sue is introverted, and I obviously am not! Sometimes I would carefully suggest ever so quietly and quickly, "Wouldn’t it be cool if we could do this together, have fun, make enough to have a
little left over for beans and beads?@ She thought she was the mistress of teasing, so sad, so sad, she knew nothing about the art of tease! Finally, during the summer some years later, I asked Sue and her honey over for
dinner and plied her with wine in the hot afternoon sunshine.
I handed her a gin and tonic to help her transition from the wine and with the sun in her eyes I ever so carefully and slowly asked her again, ASue, wouldn’t it be cool to do this thing
together, kind of a pseudo business, because ofcourse, we=re not making enough money to keep the bead bank happy?@ There was a small silence as she slurped up the last of
the gin and tonic and inquired ever so easily "well, what would we call ourselves?@ I had myself prepared for more years of fun teasing Sue and almost fell out of that chair. I figured, well if that is all that is stopping
her it shouldn’tbe too hard to come up with something. At that exact moment a large crow flew over and let out with his crow song. Without hesitation and following my heart I blurted out
ACrowe Sisters, they like bright and shiny things!@
No, we are not Native American but we honor their traditions in stitching and have a deeply abiding appreciation for the world about us. No, we are not sisters but we share much and this makes us sisters. As we continue along this path we
will find others that we wish to have join us. One such person is Donna Ashcraft of Fantasy Glass, a wonderful bead maker. Wonder if we will have to get her sun blinded and ply her with gin? Stay tuned for more updates!
Life must change for all of us.
