For the last year or so, we’ve been meeting Suzanne Perras to do yarn deals in the Capilano Mall parking lot. She hands us bags of her Rockin’ Stockins Shetland yarn, and we write a cheque on the back of Anna’s car.
On our drive down to Olds for Fibre Week, Alliston, Anna and I made a stop at Athenry farm just outside Innisfail to pick up a load of raw fleeces and roving.
We are looking for you: dedicated crafters, makers & artists who would like making / studio space to work and sell your goods out of.
The Alberta Yarn Project team is happy to announce the opening of our new store. Taking up a small upstairs suite at the beautiful Creative Practices Institute (10149 - 122 Street NW), we officially open our doors for limited hours starting this Saturday, April 2nd and Sunday, April 3rd, 10:00 am - 6:00 pm.
I've been thinking about mending. It's a practice that's new to me.
In the past if something tore, or needed hemming, I would look to my mother. I could probably have fixed the item myself, but she is a wizard at fibre arts and owns a sewing machine or two.
