Dear Knitters,

We are in the process of creating a shop that sells high-end knitted clothes from strictly local sources and made by local women in a cottage industry fashion, perhaps even a co-op. I have a small place on Danforth Ave.
Here is what we are looking for:1. People here in Toronto who can knit professional quality garments for a fee2. Local and/or organic yarns
3. People who are interested in becoming partners.

Please, pass the word along.

Felting with Ann McElroy

Although Ann does not resale our wool, she makes beautiful felted items with it. She can do wonders with needlefelting as the sculpture bellow.

She makes hats, and much more. If you are in the Ottawa area you are a lucky person, you can learn with her how to transform fiber into magic.

Don't forget to check her vessels, they are my favourite articles.
