After months of preparation , we open on Saturday! Many people have asked about the name-La Tisserande. It means "weaver", which is my maiden name, in French. When I was thinking of a name, I wanted it to convey my love of all things French. My grandmother, Hazel Weaver took my sister Kelly and me there when I was 13 and I just kept going back. I fell in love with the colors, the smells, and the food. Today both Kelly and I can catch the faintest whiff and say simultaneously "it smells like France!". So La Tisserande sounded good, but I didn't know if it was just right until I began googling images. I found the standard pictures of women at looms, but also weaver birds building their elaborate nests. That's what I do- create beautiful and functional "nests" for my clients. And in homage to my grandmother, who adored birds, both live and encrusted with jewels, the idea was born. So here's to Mom Hazel--and name that honors my family, my inspirational grandmother, and my profession. Kathy

Live daringly, boldly, fearlessly. Taste the relish to be found in competition - in having put forth the best within you.
