Sybil of Crochet Nooks by Anne was grateful for the opportunity and expressed appreciation to Elaine’s for extending the option to a fellow artist.
Elaine’s also invited Chique Couture by Akilah to participate in the Business Expo Community Edition hosted by the Ministry of Energy and Business, in conjunction with the Barbados Trust Fund Limited (BTFL) on June 25 at Hoyte’s Village.
Akilah was able to gain potential customers through her experience stating “I got persons who said they would contact to get stuff made.”
