Time to get out and have some fun!

     Classes, workshops and sit-and-knits are all starting up again at The Violet Unicorn! Come and join me to learn to weave, knit or paint or join in a class to enhance the skills you already have! New classes are being added regularly, so check back often. 

     Our weekly sit-and-knit has stopped for the summer but will resume in September on Tuesday evenings from 6:00pm-8:00pm. We sit outside if the weather is lovely and if it's kinda cold and lousy, we meet in the shop. I only have about ten chairs, so please pop a folding chair in your trunk in case we run out of seats.   CLICK HERE TO SEE CLASSES AND SIGN UP

Summer is upon us!

    The shop is now open seven days a week through to the end of September.  I have been bringing in hand dyed yarns from across Canada and there are new arrivals almost weekly, so come by regularly to see what's new. I'm proud to say that I have the felted art from Surfing Mermaid, postcards by local photographer Stephen Conrad and gorgeous hand-turned pens and crochet hooks by Doug Allan. My bath and body products are all made by locally by Pleasure Soaks and smell like pure happiness. Local artist, Sarah Jowett, is also featured in the shop and you can get her to paint custom art of your pet or pick up some of her other art work right in the shop. We just added "Nana Lana's Socks and Frocks" to the shop too! Lots to see, smell and feel in the shop!

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.
