Pernilla Svenre. She is celebrating her 15th anniversary this year, and it is 15 years since I first visited her stand at the Copenhagen Fashion fair at the beautifully renovated Øksnehallen (literally "cow hall"). The building was used for 150 years as the meat market. The Danes are masters at converting very old buildings into new spaces. I am very excited to be going to the Fashion Fair in Copenhagen in February.
I am taking the Oleana Blankets to the IDS12 in Toronto at the end of January. This time we will be on a Norwegian Stand. It is going to be a grand affair! More about that later.
This is going to be an exciting OLEANA year! The new factory will open to celebrate their 20th anniversary in September, and there will be another Jubilee Collection!
Before I go, I would like to tell you about a guest I will have at the end of February -- she will be offering a lecture, and a workshop (or maybe two). She is a very special person, and an exceptional artist. You can read more here: www.urbanity.ca/SueHileyHarris.htm
Best wishes for 2012, and I we look forward to seeing you soon!!
