February & March News & Workshops

I will be continuing to do Workshops at the Douglas Street Recreation Centre in Room D.

It’s a great location with lots of space to move around. Sink and washrooms as well as a kitchen if needed.

I have lots of new yarns arriving in the shop as well as National Non Woven Wool Felt all restocked.

Valdani Threads have been restocked with some new colours of 3ply and #8 hand dyed in some beautiful variegated tones.

The Ultra Punch Needle will be back in stock shortly and I always have my backup, the clover punch needle in stock.

Lots of great projects are available in the Studio and I look forward to seeing all my fibre art folks either in the Studio or at one of the Workshops.

Thanks for all your support.

Gwen

 

My hours will remain the same with the exception of appointments that I must attend.
