Shhh ...

It's a secret ... I just finished spinning this super soft blend of Alpaca and Merino so that I can make a wooly warm present for someone this festive winter season. Don't tell anyone ;)

Feeling artsy?  Think you’ve got what it takes to make one of these yourself? Have the girls over for dinner and a glass of wine and make a scarf, bag or jewellery.  Perhaps you’ve always wanted to learn how to knit but didn’t have anyone to show you.  Knitting is coming back in and all the cool girls are learning this reclaimed craft.  This is not your grandma’s knitting group.  Please contact us for more information and pricing. 

If you would rather get out of the house and meet some new people, Felted Workshops are taking place at Vernon Community Art Centre

First Craft Sale

Our 1st craft sale went very well.  We found some wonderful homes for our knitted owls, felted scarves and dreadlocks.  Now we take a few weeks off, and then prep for Creative Chaos in June.
