      Woodstock Fleece Festival : Saturday - October 17th, 2015

      The 5th annual Woodstock Fleece Festival is coming up at the Woodstock Fairgrounds!  It runs 9:00am to 5:00pm and admission is only $6.00, kids are free. All the reviews indicate super fun and fibery goodness ...sounds like a really nice day.

      Be sure to check out their workshop list too!




    October is such a fibery inspired month! We look forward to Thanksgiving turkey and trimmings and Halloween fun.  Plus Fiber festivals and tucking into a good new project! But most importantly, the woolens come out of hiding and get aired out.  Then the sweater parade begins as it is becoming cool enough for us to sport our yarnie finery!  So much knitwear to oooh and ahhh over! And socks! It is time for the wool socks again! Bliss!

    We look forward to seeing your favourites!

    Some people have already been asking... We will indeed be open Thanksgiving Sunday this year.

Happy Stitching!
