Busy week for us at Sew Crafty: Toni had the honor of participating as one of six “spotlight speakers” during the Downtown Durham Inc 2011 Annual Meeting, held at the Carolina Theatre. Her heartfelt message on What I love about Downtown Durham highlighted the essence of why Durham is a great place to work, play, and do business – the people, of course!

“There is such a strong sense of community here. I see people going out of their way all the time to do business with their neighbors, helping to promote and recommend them…This is a town comprised of ‘glass half full’ people, and all of those half full glasses make my cup runneth over with love for this community.”

The theater was buzzing with energy from all of the wonderful speakers representing businesses in downtown Durham. We are so proud to be part of this community.

Toni and I also participated in the 13th Annual Holiday Bazaar, a fundraiser for the NC Children’s Hospital. We loved meeting many of the 60 other vendors who supported this event, organized by the Triangle Medical Spouse Alliance.
