We recently caught up with artist, furniture maker and FITS fan Greg Klassen for a quick Q&A about his work, inspirations and life in the Pacific Northwest. Check out the interview below:
How did you get into woodworking?
What is the biggest highlight of your career so far?
You live in the Northwest now. Where are you originally from and how has it shaped you?
What is your favorite part about living in the Northwest?
You often speak about your process and it's importance to your success, from inspiration to finish. If you had to choose, which part of your process is your favorite?
What is the most challenging part of your process?
You've created your own style which people respect. Where do you draw your inspiration? How do you keep your work growing / changing / evolving?
How important to your process is the quality of the tools that you work with?
Do you have any tools that you work with on a daily basis that are sentimental?
Do you have a favorite piece that you have created? If so, what makes it so special?
I am sure your creative process (and raising three kids) takes a toll on your body, and specifically your feet. How important is it for your to have the right support in your job (like FITS socks)?
What do you like about FITS socks? (Made in America, technology, materials, etc)
Your sock size shouldn’t be a guessing game. Our socks range from small to double XL, but the best way to know the perfect fit for you is to match your shoe size to the chart on the left. That way, you’ll know the size you select will give you the fit and feel you expect.
Between sizes? Go with your gut, but rest assured that your socks will still fit great. If you receive your order and find yourself wishing you’d gone up or down a size, just let us know. We’ll happily send you replacements for your preferred size.
Concerned about laundry mix-ups? All FITS® socks are coordinated by color and size, based on the colors you see on the size chart. So, you won’t have to worry about mixing up your sizes with the other FITS® wearers in your home. (But stray socks mysteriously going missing in the dryer? Unfortunately, we can’t help with that.)
Questions? Let’s talk.
