Meet Katie McDonald
Katie McDonald wanted a specific kind of headband for her baby daughter but couldn’t find any locally that fit the bill. Rather than looking online, she decided to try her hand at making one for her daughter. She was so pleased with the results that she kept making more. She was having so much fun she couldn’t stop, and pretty soon people began to comment on her adorable head bands and ask where she got them. That’s when she knew she had a great business idea, and she made it official in 2014 with her Kalibands headbands, bandana bibs, scarves and bow ties.
For Katie, making her headbands and other accessories is a creative outlet and is something she enjoys spending time at. She loves being able to customize something for a customer, using their thoughts and ideas and implementing the colours that they want. Seeing their smiles when they receive their finished product always makes it worthwhile.
Katie is grateful for the close-knit, community feel in Dawson Creek, which lends itself well to being in business and working closely with customers. It is much easier to get to know people in a small town like Dawson Creek and to be able to personalize products and services. “People are friendly and things are slower here,” says Katie. “The residents are great and everyone is so kind.”
