Two artists move from Vancouver, B.C., population: 2 million, to Dana, Saskatchewan, population: 30.
Can they survive rural life?
(amendment: two artists barely survive 4 months in Dana and buy a building in nearby Bruno, population: 500)
hi there,my mother-in-law owns a sewing machine shop in saskatoon - i'm going to send her over to visit you, and next time i'm in saskatoon i will too. a friend sent me a link to your blog as my husband & i are contemplating the very same move (well toronto > rural ontario) for similar reasons. i was hoping to open an independant craft store/tea shop in t.o. but got overwhelmed by the cost of such an endeavour (among other things). what you have done is pretty much exactly what i hope to do someday...though i have many fears about "going rural". it has been a real comfort to read through your posts - face some of those fears vicariously & see you conquer them. thanks so much!jen
Thanks for such a lovely comment Jen. I look forward to meeting your mother-in-law, hopefully you'll be able to visit too some day!
