When The Stitchery shop and studio opened in 2017, their mission was to make modern, quality fabrics and knowledge accessible to everyone. It was a step further in a longer journey of creatively encouraging others.
Owner Jill's philosophy is simple; "Making is important. It uplifts us, it heals us, it brings joy and satisfaction in the work of our hands. Wearing your own me-made garments or showing off a me-made quilt is that feeling of satisfaction realized. What started as a dream for one person has become a community of many."

We make beer. Great beer, if we do say so ourselves. We approach brewing with an understanding that good things in life are usually simple. The secret ingredient is passion. So we take classic recipes and build on the experience by adding our passion to the process, before, during and after.
As we see it, being vulnerable is the bravest act to commit. You don’t hide behind armor. You face life head on, confident of your power within. And you understand that in life you only get what you give. Welcome to Brave.

In 2008, artist Clive Tucker opened Straight Up Studio. Clive believes in a playful, yet poignant approach to art. He is very focused on keeping elements of play and whimsy in his work with a light sprinkling of irony.
After years of completing two science degrees, Tucker found himself slaving in a mill job in England. Disillusioned, he cast the job aside, and fled to Scotland. Apprenticing with Lotte Glob at The Far North Pottery, he learned the art of throwing and dreamed of becoming an artist. He immigrated to Canada in '94, and moved to Vancouver in '98 to attend Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design. Upon completion, Clive was invited to be Artist in Residence at the Port Moody Art Centre.
