It’s almost time for the fall Island Knits Yarn and Fibre Market – yay! I’m happy to be participating again – it’s such a lovely day of talented makers and gorgeous colours and textures. I should also mention the incredibly yummy food available from the vendor restaurants at the Victoria Public Market.
I’d love to see you on November 10th!

Then this post is for you. It’s time for the Spring Fibre Festival organized by Island Knits. It’s happening on Saturday, April 14th, from 11:00-3:00 at the Victoria Public Market. I’ll be there with a selection of needle felting and jewellery. Would love to see you!
What would a post about fibre be without a picture of Smudge helping?

Happy New Year! Okay, I’m a little late on that, but it still counts!
I wanted to send out a thank you to all of you. I feel so fortunate to have so many supportive people in my life.
This was especially apparent during my brief but fun market “season”. You listened to my ramblings about stock and all things market related (in person and/or online), witnessed the disaster scene as I prepped, and came out to the markets to shop, visit, supply me with drinks and man the table for breaks.
There will be more later on markets that are upcoming, but for now, thank you!!

The Island Knits Fibre Market is over, and I’d say it was a great success! The Victoria Public Market was packed all day, and hopefully all the vendors made oodles of sales!
I had a lot of fun meeting and chatting with people – there are so many creative and interesting people in this city.
Here are a few blurry and busy pictures of my booth.
Thanks you to everyone for all your support leading up to this event – it was much appreciated! 😘
A whole lotta needle felting!

Yay – fall has arrived (and not my usual kind of fall 😉). First off, the annual pumpkin needle felting workshop is happening on October 21st at the Beehive Wool Shop, from 10:30 – 12:30am. Call or drop by the Beehive to book a spot! This is one of my favourite workshops – pumpkins are fun.
Secondly, I’m taking part in a market on October 28th (poster below). It’s a fibre market arranged by Island Knits, and the list of sellers makes me keep repeating to myself “I’m there to sell, not to buy (much)”.
I’m madly felting away to produce stock, and have broken out “the good stuff” – hand-dyed fibres that I’ve been hoarding. I will also be making some copper and sterling silver fibre related jewellery (shawl pins and sticks, and possibly stitch markers).
I’m really excited about this – I haven’t participated in a market in years. I’ve been saying that I need to be two people – one to obsess over all of the organizational and table design details (I’m a great obsesser!), and the other to actually make stuff. My mind is whirling!
I hope to see you there! There’s always the opportunity for lots of yummy food at the Public Market too… choosing is the difficult part…
