Starting November 4th Let me Knot will no longer be taking every day flower orders. However, I will still be available to provide a full service for the following:
- Weddings & Events;
- Workshops; and
- Flowers for Special holidays (e.g. Christmas/Valentine/Mother's Day Pre-Orders)
I understand for many of my regular customers that this will come as shock, and perhaps a disappointment. So I'd just like to share why I am taking this step.
Opening Let me Knot was a dream of mine since I first began working at Flowers by Manuela and I started this business with the goal of raising the bar and changing the way flowers are done in Yellowknife with the highest standard of customer service and a personal touch unique to each customer.
I am proud of Let me Knot’s achievements in this short space of time. My business has grown substantially and as residents of Yellowknife and other Northern communities you have responded in turn by letting me be a part of your most intimate, happiest, and life defining moments.
However as with all adventures, including professional ones, there comes a time when another path comes along that makes you just as excited as the ones that brought you there.
At the close of the last NWT election period, a new suite of MLAs were voted into the Legislative Assembly, with our new assembly having the highest representation of women in Canada. I have been offered, and accepted, the opportunity to help one of Yellowknife’s new female MLA’s, Caroline Wawzonek, MLA for Yellowknife South, as her Constituency Assistant. I have known Caroline for some time now, I know how hard she wants to work for the NWT, and I am not ashamed to say that she is someone I admire greatly. I would not be making this choice if I didn’t believe in her.
I am looking forward to serving as MLA Wawzonek's Constituency Assistant, I assure you that I will help her connect with Yellowknife South constituents and listen to their needs and hopes for the next four years with the same passion and effort I have put into your orders for the last 2 years, and will continue to do through weddings, workshops, and special orders.
Remember, Let me Knot is not leaving the business community, it’s merely changing.
