Now that’s a lot of canvas!
Things are certainly heating up around here – well inside the shop anyways! Is spring ever going to come? Come on Mother Nature you can do it! 🙂 Our team has been working extremely hard as this is our usual busy tent/tipi manufacturing season. By the looks of things people are really taking to the whole ‘glamping’ thing. We’ve had lots of inquiries and have helped some customers create the perfect home away from home for their extended family and friends. We’ve even had a new customer start his own glamping business in Prince Edward County. We can’t wait to see the pictures of their final set up! Once I have more information about this ‘resort’ I will certainly post the link for you all to enjoy.
Our friends at Clayoquot Wilderness Resort in British Columbia are getting their resort ready for a new and exciting 2015 season. We’ve had the privilege of making all of their tents for the past 4 years for their guests and staff to enjoy. This year was no different. Here is a fun little fun statistic…. we used enough canvas to cover 4 sides of the CN Tower!! Wow! @7,000 feet of pristine canvas! Now that’s alot of canvas!! ( www.wildretreat.com )
More exciting news for Porcupine Canvas…..we were nominated for 2 NOVA awards this year – Scotiabank Business of the Year Award (6-30 Employees) and RBC Marketing Innovation Achievement Award. We are humbled by these nominations and will continue to make you proud. I will keep you posted on the outcome but just know that we are thankful to be recognized in our community.
We’d like to take this opportunity to thank all of our amazing customers for believing in us and helping us strive to be an awesome little company in Northern Ontario!
