Meet Pierre.

Pierre in his booth, Spring One of a Kind Show, circa 2018.

Pierre Poisson has been creating clothing and accessories with a focus on plus-size women for over 30 years. I first met Pierre many years ago when he was my booth neighbour at a Spring One of a Kind Show. We instantly became “fast craft-show friends”. He helped me with my very poorly spoken French and I helped him find words in English that he only knew in French.

After being “show neighbours” for the first time, we always requested that our booths be close to one another. That’s one of the great things about doing shows: my good craft-show friends are my “second family”. Twice a year, we get to spend time being booth neighbours and catching up on each other’s world. These friendships help us get through the long hours and days of “show life”.

When the pandemic hit, Pierre quickly adapted his line to include face masks. He started to produce them early on and he has honed his design and settled on the style that I am featuring at my Holiday Show.

Pierre’s unisex bandana-style masks, available for $15.00 each.

I really like Pierre’s masks for several reasons. It is his own unique design, and it DOES NOT fall off your nose, like so many others I have tried. He uses a variety of materials, so the bandana style I carry here works for both men and women. 

For the Artisan Holiday Show in my studio, Pierre is sending masks with matching scarves that are made from more festive and luxurious materials. If we all have to wear a mask over the holidays, why not choose one that will let you celebrate the season in style.

Holiday Scarves with Matching Masks: $55.00 Set, $35.00 Scarf, $20.00 mask. Luxurious holiday fabrics, in many colour choices.
