Hi! My name is Emily Sargent and I am the creator and owner of Whistler Fairy Factory. Whistler Fairy Factory began in the fall of 2011. It all began when my best friend Gigi wanted a tutu for her 10th birthday. I went around my house looking for supplies to try and make a tutu for her. I looked up online how to make a tutu and found that the best way was tying tulle onto the elastic. After about 1 and 1/2 hours of cutting and tying tulle I had finally made a tutu. When I gave it to my friend Gigi for her birthday she was ecstatic! After that all of my friends and their siblings wanted one. Gigi and I then decided to make and sell our tutus at the annual Christmas kids craft fair, The Bratz Biz. Our booth at The Bratz Biz was a big success!
After our big success at Bratz Biz, I decided to participate in the Whistler Farmers Market during the summer, and I continued to do the Bratz Biz, on my own. I am now moving into my 4th year at the Whistler Farmers Market and the Bratz Biz. I am selling handmade tutus, hair accessories, flower fairy wands and needle felted creatures and kits.
