The history of Banar Designs- Sepia Saturday

The theme this week comes from this old photograph. As usual, we're encouraged to use it as we like.
Of course, Nancy and I immediately thought of our family business- Banar Designs, a needlework and crafts company. 
We started it more than 30 years ago and Nancy and I just recently retired. Our mother died about 16 years ago but worked pretty much right up til her end.

 Several years later, shipping our biggest order ever- to Walmart. With all our employees:
I made tee shirts for everyone that said " at Banar, the impossible is possible."

We produced all kinds of needlecraft kits and later published how-to-do-it books on all types of crafts.
