Every Thursday we post a comment, tweet, email or secret message we’ve received from one of our Soakworthy customers (stores, fans, consumers, friends). Sometimes, on a rough day, it’s really helpful to read an inspiring message from someone in our community. Someone who appreciates what we do. Someone who is as passionate about Soak as we are. We appreciate all the love that comes our way. Really we do.
From Lisette D & Danielle Bowen, Knitique, A Yarn Boutique, via email.
Dear Chris (she’s our Chief Soaksperson),
Thank you again to Soak for your donation of the Soak samples for our fund raising event for Louisa’s charity Macmillan Cancer Support.
Our event was an overwhelming success and we raised over $1, 400.00 for Macmillan Cancer Support.
The attendee’s loved that their Louisa Harding hat kit came with a Soak sample!
Thank you again for your donation and thank you for being a company that cares.
It’s our pleasure. If you are a Soak retailer and you’ve got an event. We would be honoured to hear about it. Thanks Lisette!
We received an envelope this morning and much to our enjoyment, it was the April Spring issue of Martha Stewart Living. Flip to page 38 and you’ll find Soak featured under “75 Spectacular Spring Things”!
It’s been an exciting day for us media-wise as we’ve received news that we’re also in Chatalaine for the April Issue as well on page 89! We haven’t seen it ourselves yet but you can bet we’ll be picking up the issue.
I have been reminded of Spring all morning. First it was the brightly coloured fabrics shown on Red Pepper Quilt’s blog. And then these magazine spring issues. Not to mention the sunny skies and melting snow. If you’re anything like me, and can’t wait for spring cleaning time (not because I enjoy cleaning, but because it means warmer weather is just around the corner) than perhaps a brightly coloured Carrie or Phil basin can help you with a few jobs around the house.
Spring uses for Carrie and Phil
Clean your blinds. Fill up a basin with some warm water and Soak and dip a wash cloth in the water to wipe down your blinds. It’s amazing how much dust can accumulate on each blade.
Wash your winter accessories. Carrie’s larger size makes her great for hand washing several pairs of mittens, scarves and hats all at the same time.
If you are a big gardener, the basins are great for outdoor use. They are great for holding soil and fertilizer or to keep your bulbs and roots in one place.
Do you have any other ideas of uses for our vibrant basins? We’d love to hear them.
