Why hello again, Friends,

I almost didn't hear you over the roar of neurons firing in my brain box.
You see, in an attempt to preempt the Annual Winter Hibernation, I am trying lots of new things to keep up my energy level.  

Upcoming Event: Broadlands' Winter Festival & Craft Show (Dec 1)

Happy Friday Friends in Fibre!

Well! Time has gotten away from me  and it seems I have dropped the ball on promoting an upcoming appearance.  Tomorrow,  I and my partner in craft, Erin Hackney of Erchin will be at the Annual Broadlands Winter Festival & Craft Show tomorrow (!) from 10 AM to 3PM.

Broadlands is a public grade school located at 106 Broadlands Boulevard in Toronto.  As well as over 20 local artisans, there will be a poinsettia sale and coffee lounge, and, if you've got children, fun activities like facepainting, a gingerbread house workshop and create-a-craft tables.

I have not done this sale before, but it has an excellent reputation for quality goods and vendors from previous years so if you're in the area, come on by and say hello!

Simple Math For Makers




Time well spent.

Upcoming Event: Crosswires #40- Live Indie Rock and Handmade Art (November 25)

My dear Friends In Fibre,

As I have said, this is a busy time of year for craftspeople, and so you may expect updates from me, the frequency of which have not been seen since I used to use this blog to complain about everything/nothing. 

 This Sunday November 25 at 8pm in the evening is another upcoming Holiday Appearance where you might find All Things Odd hawking artisan stocking stuffers at reasonable prices, and also...... Tacos.

For Your Holiday Wish List: Part One

Hi again Friends In Fibre,

KayTor here and I thought I would share some products making their premier in the Etsy shop soonish.  I've been having a lot of fun with the development process  and I think these new designs really show it!

Upcoming Event: The Sassy Little Winter Craft Show

Save the date, friends!  In addition to Your Not-Actually-That-Humble Narrator and  Monster Hat Mama extraordinaire Erin Awesome, there are going to be some great local craftspeople working this show.  

The holidays are coming up and sure, you could just get your friends  metallic spandex leggings, dollar store kazoos and sweat-stained promotional baseball caps with that weird mesh in the back, but why not show how much you  like them (and how cool you are) with a fun little something handmade?


Item the second;

Here's a Twitter feed that spotlights our fine felted pretties and shall keep you in the loop about upcoming sales promotions and craft shows. 

And here is our brand new facebook page!

Now that its the holiday season I'm going to be out doing  a lot of craft shows in various places around Southern Ontario.  Come say hi if you happen to see us hawking our wares out in your city. It's always great to chat with fibre fiends and fellow craft-nerds.

More updates soon to come- Exciting things are happening!

Until then, friends.
