William Murray loves creating with wood. He grew up on a vineyard in Grimsby.
"My Dad was " The whirligig guy" after he retired and he inspired me to create cool things in wood. I love to work with exotic woods and domestic woods as well."
Since everything William makes is handmade each item is unique and he takes great pride in the quality of his work.
You may see William around at the Rustic Garage. He loves to come by to check in and meet with shoppers!

Ann-Marie Slegers has been creative from a very early age. In fact, creativity was thoroughly encouraged by her mother.
Ann-Marie, a retired Federal Government employee, is self taught at stone/pebble art, macramé, refinishing furniture, sewing drapery, thumbtack art, patchwork and machine embroidery.
Tracy Goris lives in the country with her husband and three children.
Living in the country, they've had a hard time finding Christmas Decorations that stand up to the winds - so she began making her own.
With over 20,000 Christmas lights on their property, Tracy needed wind-resistant decor to add to her display. Her yard displays are made of 1/2 plywood, double coated on both sides with a high end exterior, latex paint, with a primer built in. The front sides are given an extra UV protective clear coat to ensure they last as long as possible!
Tracy has a whole portfolio of projects available to order from, just ask to see it at The Rustic Garage. Don’t see what you're looking for? Just ask, you never know what she can come up with!

Linda has taken advantage of retirement to take some of the art and craft forms she has used in the past to the next level. She mainly dabbles in acrylics (particularly pours) as well as some other crafts.
Her subject matter is very eclectic, so Linda welcomes any inquiries about commissioned work (Contact Debbie at the Rustic Garage for details!)
Sharon first thought about creating charcuterie boards back in the spring of 2019 when she bought one as a gift for a friend.
After extensive research, she feels as though she's truly perfected the craft.
Sharon's boards don't use epoxy, which can make people ill.
She works closely with the local Mennonite community to source pre-cut boards, and then sands them down.
She then applies mineral oil to the live-edge boards, as well as a coat of beeswax. Walnut, Black Walnut, Maple, Oak, even Cherry - she's surely got a board that's right for you!
Sharon has found a hobby she loves, and she's excited to share it with you!
