Custom Bows by Welcome Home Wreaths & Gifts Print E-mail

How Bows and Wreaths Brought Healing

Lynda Naylor, owner of the booth Welcome Home Wreaths & Gifts at The Cotton Company in Wake Forest, NC, will be making custom bows for customers during this holiday shopping season. Lynda’s wreaths and bows are state of the art, high quality creations, and so is the story of how she got into the bow and wreath making business.
 
Lynda once had a relative ask her if she wanted to learn how to make bows for home décor and wreaths, but Lynda did not really think too much about this invitation until her world changed. At the time, Lynda’s husband’s health was quickly declining and after he passed away, again the same relative called and asked her once more if she would like to learn the art of bow making. Lynda’s family gathered together in this time of grief and decided that it was time to learn how to make bows. Making bows was not only something Lynda began to enjoy, but it also was a way for her to grieve the loss of her husband in a healthy way. As she continued to make bows, people started to compliment her on her work. From there, she began selling bows as a business and also expanded into wreath making.
 
Lynda has been making her bows for four years now, and this year is the first time she will be making bows at The Cotton Company in Wake Forest, North Carolina. She has been a part of several craft fairs and markets, and never hesitates to make the events a family affair, bringing her daughter and oftentimes her son to join in on the fun. She and her children understand that no matter how well she does during the events, they ultimately come so that they can spend time together with their family.
 
Come into The Cotton Company on October 17th (Ladies’ Night), November 1st (Holiday Open House), and November 8th (White Street Holiday Market) and request a custom bow from Lynda. She will have different sizes of bows, as well as different types of ribbon, to choose from. Bows can be requested and paid for on the same day and the bows will be ready for pick-up in no time!

July Featured Sue McGlothlin Photography

North Carolina is booming with artistic talent. Growing in popularity for its small town experience is the town of Wake Forest. While Raleigh hosts artists on First Fridays, Durham hosts artists on Third Fridays, and Cary hosts forth Fridays, the Historic Downtown of Wake Forest holds their own community art walk, Art After Hours, every second Friday. What is usually a fairly quiet street in the evenings will be filled with the sounds of live music and the sights of painting and photography, like that of Sue McGlothlin Photography at The Cotton Company.

  

Sue McGlothlin is certainly not a new face to downtown Wake Forest. She has been a vendor inside The Cotton Company for almost one year, displaying some of her award-winning slow exposures and bringing joy to the customers each time she comes to work her booth. Originally from Alaska, Sue explored photography for the first time in high school while working in a dark room.  Sue made her way to North Carolina in 2010 via California. When she moved to North Carolina, she began to “wear [her] old camera out” taking in the various wonders of her new home through a viewfinder.  Her photography seeks to display both the history and beauty of North Carolina and surrounding areas.  Her exhibit will be displayed in hand crafted frames, made by her loving husband.  These featured pieces are ready to hang but she also offers a collection of matted prints and greeting cards.

Sue McGlothlin’s exhibit will hang inside The Cotton Company Art Gallery July 7-August 2nd  in downtown Wake Forest.  It will feature only photographs shot in North Carolina. The Cotton Company will host an artist reception duringArt After Hours on July 11 from 6pm-9pm where guests can meet Sue and admire her collection.  This reception is Free and Open to the Public.  Refreshments will be served and to compliment Sue’s North Carolina themed exhibit we will serve a taste of our favorite NC wines.
