We are excited to be Bronze Partner for the Annual Eastside Culture Crawl – stop by and visit us while you’re out cruising the artists studios in our “hood.” We are open Thursday and Friday, 2-8pm and Saturday and Sunday, 11am to 4pm and stock will be replenished each day. In addition to being open for four fabulous days, we have room in our 5 workshops being offered throughout the 4 days.

HAND WOVEN DESIGNER NATURALS
We have the most amazing line-up of beautiful, high quality natural fabrics all thanks to our generous donors. Yes, that’s right, beautifully hand-woven fabrics from natural fibers using traditional looms and high quality yarns including hand-dyed silks from France. There is a limited supply so, one per customer please.
Oh LA, LA! Every colour of the rainbow…great for dressing up your outfit for that swanky party or perhaps you just need a little something special around your shoulders – the silk is hand-dyed from France and you know that silk chiffon will make you feel like a million bucks. Lots of colours to choose from…
WOOL AND WOOL BLENDS
Wool coating, suiting in wool and wool blends. Check out this retro-inspired jacket with a bit of a vintage flair – this wool comes in two shades of warm brown, a rich forest green and luscious teal.
OMG! – The heavens opened up and out poured a truck load of quilting cottons! Every colour and pattern imaginable including a table full of Christmas prints and even Christmas flannel prints. Come and check out the beautiful sample quilt tops and quilt books. And for you seasoned quilters, we have bags of Hobbs Heirloom Cotton Batting in full widths and lots smaller pieces for those little projects.
Just in, red and black Naugahyde – great for bags or foot stool covers – it’s easy to use and cleans-up in a snap.
