Patrice Kirkish

"My husband casually asked, 'So if we move up here, what are we going to do?' I spontaneously replied, 'Hey, let's open up a fine woodworking gallery!' At that moment, our fate was sealed."

In 2003, Patrice and Steve Kirkish decided to leave their tech careers and move to Healdsburg. “The slower pace, community focus, and amazing food and wine was irresistible.” 

Safe to say they’ve never looked back. And they’ve created something pretty special with the Dovetail Collection; a shop dedicated to the one-of-a-kind works from 18 different California makers, many of whom have been part of Dovetail’s community from the start.
