Christmas Spirit....

Well, I can't believe another year has flown by. Our new location in the Arts & Culture district of Collingwood provides us with beautiful large bright windows, displays of colours and a good karma table area for gathering. We've had several graduates from our classes who have grown to love the relaxation that knitting provides us in our busy everyday lives. We have helped create heirloom baby blankets, family felted clogs, beaded cowls, hats and scarves, lace shawls, thrum mittens, needle felted animals, knitted Christmas Tree angels and much more. Thanks to all for supporting our shop. It's been a pleasure to guide you, help you, laugh with you and share knit afternoons with you. Wishing you a Very  Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!
