You think after having five kids I would be used to waiting nine long months but it felt like forever. We taped our segment of Dragons' Den May 13th and it finally aired February 2nd. We celebrated by watching the show for the first time with our family and friends at the Modern Restaurant. My mom drove all the way from Davidson which made it very special!
You can see the full episode and our segment at CBC's website. Dragons' Den It's episode 14

A new dress for the occasion.
I even got flowers from my awesome account manager at the Credit Union.
Since the show we have received hundreds of interesting emails and positive comments. We have been contacted by over 40 stores from across Canada wanting to carry the socks. I have also received emails from as far away as Israel, Chicago and Poland all of people who have watched the show. It has been amazing. We have also been in the media. I lock myself in a room to talk on the radio or do a newspaper interview which I have done in my robe and slippers while Pat watches the kids but Southwest TV news wanted to do an on camera interview so I did a behind the scenes video of getting ready to tape that interview.
Here is the final product. You can hear Ellie talking in the background. FYI my Dad is actually Cliff Shaw but Uncle Wayne did call to tell me how proud he was to see me on TV and I have had a lot of people tell me I take after my Dad!
