In Honor of Nancy Carleton December 21, 2012 08:21

Today, we honor Ms. Nancy Carleton, the de facto Mom of Craftland. Nancy has been a Craftland supporter from day one -- sitting on the floor at 711 Westminster in 2002, carefully threading ornaments with the same micro-focus as Margaret. She passed away on December 17th. We will miss that tough cookie.

A portion of today's sales will be donated to the Westover School in Middlebury, CT where she graduated with the class of 1950. Nancy enjoyed the progressive and inclusive school with a great scholarship program for students from different backgrounds. She was a great advocate of places where women could be challenged and achieve great things in a supportive atmosphere.

"The mission of the school is to provide an environment which inspires the intellectual, artist, athlete, and philosopher in each student. Westover challenges young women to think independently, to embrace diversity, and to grow intellectually and spiritually. Westover encourages in each student integrity, responsibility, and commitment to community."
