FINALLY-Classes will be resuming in November!

   It has been almost two years since I have been able to hold classes at the shop and I am trying to navigate the best way to do this. It's not an easy decision. I will be testing the waters and starting classes again in November and will see how they go. Anybody attending a class will have to show proof of double vaccination. The classes are going to be small and masks must be worn.   I will be starting with knitting, crocheting, weaving and painting classes. The sculpting classes will be later this winter.  Classes are small, so I expect they will fill up quickly. If you have a group of friends/family, you can contact me to book your own separate class.

Fisherman's ​Cove is open!

    Did you know that all the shops are open until Christmas and some, like the Violet Unicorn, are open all year long?  Come on down and buy your gorgeous yarns, custom masks and unicorn accessories in my shop and then spend the day at the cove exploring the shops, eating on the patio at Boondock's or just relaxing on a bench with a coffee and looking out at the ocean. Tons of free parking and there's definitely something for everybody here.  The Violet Unicorn is open every day except Tuesdays!

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 now available at the shop!

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.
