Best Crafter

Gold Winner Nicole McInnis, Oh Dina!

Silver Winner Tyrone Goodwin, Classic Soles

Bronze Winner Nicole Decarufel, My Tiny Creatives

Nicole McInnis of Oh Dina! has had a busy year. With her new baby Sonny, she’s on a short break until 2020. But new collections are coming, likely featuring some of her latest favourite materials, dried florals and botanicals from local flower farms like Humble Burdock. “I’m so delighted I won and, quite frankly, surprised. There are so many amazing makers here in the city, I’m just so stoked that I’m even on the list,” she says. McInnis is very much looking forward to working with her new studio assistant in 2020 as well. “One of the things I look forward to every day is walking into my studio and I feel that Sonny’s bassinet will be right beside me.”

The price of everything has more or less gone up including heating oil which means staying warm this winter is going to cost you more. What are your ways to try to cut down on heating costs?
