“Dawn and her team at Trout Lake Group were referred to me by fellow business owners, and it has proven to be a valuable move. Dawn’s attention to detail and care in her work shines through each time we meet. I know that I’ve got a true sense of my business’ growth and development working with Trout Lake Group.”

The Regional Assembly of Text
The Regional Assembly of Text was opened in late August of 2005 by Rebecca Dolen & Brandy Fedoruk. While attending the Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design, we collaborated on a number of projects and curated a series of book shows together.
After graduating in 2003 we decided to put our minds & hands to work. The result of which, is our very own little store. Focusing on text as a theme, the store features many lovely things designed and built by us.
Perhaps you will visit us one day.
