We’re sending thanks to Alison Alexander, Art Director at Hubbardton Forge for her support and collaboration on this year’s beautiful home decor catalogs. And of course, we are grateful to our own Creative Director, Nina Markiw. Her continued dedication to Vermont’s talented craftspeople has been instrumental in creating the unique home decor style we’ve developed at Vermont Woods Studios.
