Time to learn some fun new hobbies!

     Classes, workshops and sit-and-knits are all starting up again at The Violet Unicorn! Come and join me to learn to weave, knit, crochet or paint or join in a class to enhance the skills you already have! Over the winter months there will be an  expanded schedule of fun sessions. Brioche knitting, needle felting and Tunisian crochet are just a few of the new classes being added, so check back often. 



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.  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!

I always have masks pre-made available for purchase in the shop so pop in and see what's here!
