Hello Suzanne.  Thank you for the lovely calendar!  You did an amazing job balancing everything.  I like the quality of the paper as well!

Hi Suzanne,
Just came home from Campbell River and there were your beautiful calendars !  I think they are
just fabulous and wanted you to know and to thank you, once again, for all you do to put these
together in such a colourful, creative and most impressive way !  The paper is awesome and has
s really nice feel to the touch .  . .
In any case, Suzanne, thanks again for another super, super calendar !!

Christine Camilleri

This looks fantastic and I really like the fading in and out of the images this time around. I really like my “month” as a feel for the whole calendar. Another artist asked me about my experience with you last year and I couldn’t say enough good things about the way you have treated us artists/donors for your cause

Thought I’d share that a couple of my vendors are raving about the 2019 calendars.  😁This was via email:
The new 2019 images look fantastic!  I have no doubt our customers will love them.
Great job!

Hey, how about this:
I just sold a painting because a fellow Rosslander saw your 2019 Kootenay Calendar in a café in Greenwood! [Deadwood Junction]
I am amazed at how organized you are, I had no idea it was already in circulation.  And in tiny Greenwood.
So I just sold the Lake Louise Train painting to someone who already owns several of my works
…thanks to the calendar!

Well, what can I say !!? – ‘Awesome’ seems an understatement for sure ! The calendar just arrive and it is ‘first class’ all the way.  A wonderful job and all the planning that had to go into it is so apparent !  Just a super calendar. I think the fact that all the pictures are ‘Canuck’ is really delightful and satisfying.

I wanted to congratulate you on the beautiful calendar you’ve put together over the past few years. I have people asking me when the next one is coming out.  Every September I show my work at  Lake Country’s Art Walk in the Okanagan with 300 other artists, the biggest art show in the B.C. interior with an average of over 7000 people, and the calendars sell out the first day.  I find that the art + recipes is a great combination, people are buying a average of 3 and sending them to family @ friends across Canada,  Europe @ U.S.A. as gifts. You’ve put a lot of thought and work into them and it shows , keep up the good work.

With the new stock on hand, I was able to deliver 10 to the new owners of a gift an souvenir shop in Radium just now.  The owner, who not only grew up in the valley, has been in the ‘gift & souvenir biz’ for years and also produces postcards and ‘ordinary’ calendars for his industry.  He was SO excited when he saw the calendar.  He’s talking about my supplying him with a hundred calendars in the coming weeks. Wow and wow! He even proposed the idea of featuring me out front on the September long weekend with my artwork, prints, cards, etc. and autographing calendars.  Pinch me.  It’s too exciting for words.

Susan Fahrni

The calendar arrived yesterday and Wow! – it’s beautiful.  You’ve done a great job!

Louise Drescher

WOWEE! it looks fabulous, Suzanne
I love the way you put it all together and the paper is an excellent choice
It is a very unique and beautiful calendar
I can’t wait to get a batch to sell in the gallery

Veronica Pellerine

I would like to congratulate you on creating the Kootenay Art Calender! It’s beautifully done and was obviously a LOT of work! I love the way it turned out. I can’t wait to try out some of those recipes.
