Alan Ayers

Owner/Designer

I love working with craftspeople. I love hearing their stories—why they’re passionate about their thing, why they love doing what they do. Watching a blacksmith create something beautiful out of a rusty piece of metal, an artist transform a canvas, or a baker laminate the perfect buttery croissant has always inspired me to be just as immersed in my own craft. I was raised to explore and ask questions. I’ve always been fascinated by how things work.

Sarah Sibley

Writer

I’m curious. From a young age I started asking questions, and really, never stopped. Why is the sky blue? Is Santa Claus real? How are you? What’s going on? Where are we going?  Wanting to know more is (in my humble opinion) what makes me a good writer. I want to know the ins, outs, ups, downs, insides and outsides of what I’m writing about. I find, this is what makes a good story, and I think everyone has a story to tell.  I’ve written everything from the copy on a pizza box to a potential sitcom, and my favorite thing to write is a nice piece of old fashioned correspondence.
