Hello, I would like to start off by saying welcome and Thank you for visiting my website. My name is Sarah Merritt, Designer/Jeweller/Owner of Artist Alley.
It has been suggested that I should share some information about myself with you so, I guess I will start with I am deeply in love with my husband, together since 2004 but only married since 2009,was happily married till Oct 2012, mother to a wounderful daughter, and sadly one miscarraige but God willing another bundle of joy may one day come back our way, Co-Treasure of the South Sherman Community Planning Team, member of my daughter's school parent council, writer/event lister for the south sherman hub news and it's delievery. Along with much more as my family and community need. Self Employment allows me to be actively involved with my family and community. I strongly believe in a balance of making a living and a difference.
I use a assortment of different materails to create a varity of styles. Every item has been made with new materails, with clean hands, all items are unworen.
I have specail fundraising line's for causes close to my heart that honour loved ones. I like to call it Philanthropy Wear so you can wear your causes in style and showcase your philanthropy.
The philanthropy wear consists of Pink for Breast Cancer Research in Hope for Men and Women stuggling with it.
Cranberry for Alzheimers in Memory of my Grandmother.
Green for Leigh's Disease resreach in honour of friends losses.
Butterflies to remember Samantha Martin funds for T18p Canada.
Red for M.S.
Also have a few items for Protecting Canadian Children that are black and blue.
Willing to come up with a custom line for your group, currently working on Cats for the Kit Cat Club of Hamilton and Blue and Orange for the Tim Horton's camp. With some blue and white for progia.
I offer custom pieces that fit your budget, custom tailored for you. I did one for a mother with a 5 month old daughter, a 2 piece set for $6.00 to grow with her child. I also offer Crafting parties for 10 people, includes 10 kits with custom tailored service for $150.00, also offer home parties with free gift for host, both services offered only in hamilton area only at this time, sadly I do not drive. Home parties have no sales pressure, I want you to have a fun time, like my product and service.
Please remember that I am a small home based business and can not mass produce, I have had some ask and I will glady work with you if you are after a bulk group if I have the supplies as some supplies are no longer avaible, I'll work with you if your holding a gala and you wish to have swag bags, each handmade and match the fundraising colour of your event. I ask for half payment up front with the following half after completion of event the crafting party, or at time of delievey for larger orders. Just email me with details so we each have a copy for our records of amount, colours, item, date, time.
I am in the planning stages of turning into a fundraising company, seeking other Canadian artist's and businesses interested in joining with me to help boost each others sales, help groups fundraisie and create more jobs. That we may make a bigger difference together. Please email me to get involved if interest.
It is with great hope I make this transformation. Our Goal is to offer great service to your fundraising needs. Creating jobs while embracing the spirit of community, this team work will help us successful together. We will be producing our catolouges on recycled paper complete with ecofriendly ink It's important for us to do our part of reducing our business footprint. Please read my blogs for more of my thoughts and hopes on this matter.
I believe in working together to achieve great service and product, when we all work together we all win. I am blessed to make a living while making a difference. I enjoy my work, time with my family and community involvement, I am true to myself there for true to my art, this let's me raise funds,awareness and in a way raise hope.
