Starting up some classes slowly!

     Things are slowly starting to open up again. Let's hope that this continues and we can resume some of the fun activities we miss so much! I am posting a few classes-I will be keeping them small and there will still be masking requirements for them. I want the shop to be a safe environment where everybody is comfortable. I just posted some classes for March and more will follow if things still look like it's a safe thing to be doing.  CLICK HERE TO SEE CLASSES AND SIGN UP

Winter is here!

    This year the shop will be open all winter long! This will make it easy for people to pick up soft, fluffy yarns and mask orders. You can also check out the fabric board and choose which patterns you want your masks made from too! If the weather is bad, please check Instagram or Facebook for an update on any changes to hours. 

The shop has a wide range of hand-dyed yarns from across Canada as well as a nice selection of sock yarns and fun yarns from elsewhere! From handspun baby bison to the yarns of Master Dyer, Rhichard Devrieze, you will find something interesting for your next project. 

There is also ​a wide range of accessories for knitting, crocheting and weaving. Need some inspiration? Buy a kit and have everything you need to start the project right in front of you. Project bags to keep everything in are also available in fun fabrics too!

The shop now open, but you can still order online. The masks now on the website too. Over 150 fabrics to choose from! You MUST  check out all the new yarns which have been added to the shop! I can ship items anywhere, but it's more fun to come down and check out the shop in person!

Non-medical masks will continue to be available!

I have been hoarding crazy fabric for years and I'm finally vindicated! I have a wide range of awesome masks - Dr. Who, Star Wars, Walking Dead and lots more while supplies last. I also, of course, have LOTS of unicorn masks. If you are having trouble getting your kids to wear a mask, try an awesome pattern and they may want to wear it to show it off! I have adult size and child size available. I can make them two layers or three layers with an inner layer of polypropylene. Nose wire, adjustable ear loops - lots of options!

The masks are all available for purchase online-just click the link below to see what I currently have for designs.
