Hello craft fans,

There is lots of great new stuff at the shop, and longer hours for your convenience.

Coming next month: Making Mosaics and Crochet 101, as well as the continuation of the Wo-Built Home Design Series.

Part 2 of the Redwood Shelter Fundraiser will be held June 13 from 9 - 2. All the remaining donated women's fabulous fashions we received for the Mother's Day Swap will be available for $10 per big bag full, as part of the Junction-wide yard sale.

There are still a couple of spots in Wendo's May 24 Moose Trophy Workshop and the May 26 Felt Flirt workshop - call now to reserve!

New Products

For the garden...

We have delightful concrete candle holders by Creations Diana and teacup bird feeders by Margrit Made it. Perfect for jazzing up large or small outdoor spaces.

For you...

Recycled is in.

Check out rings and earrings made by Shannon McMillan out of old computer keys. You can mix ‘n’ match to create your own message – how about “help” and “save”?

Or perhaps you’d like to sport some repurposed domino tiles by Tara Campbell of Odd Bird.

Another option – resin pendants filled with such unusual objects as Nerds candy, sequins and screws!

We’ve also stocked up for summer on the very popular fused glass jewellery by Leila Cools and beaded creations by Alida Lemieux, and added kids’ necklaces by Rima Macikunas of Undine. We continue to carry gorgeous silver jewellery by Claudia Ortiz of Warakusi.

Redwood Shelter Fundraiser, Part 2

The Mother’s Day Clothing Swap was a huge success! Wise Daughters received a mountain of fabulous fashions and raised far more money than anticipated. Because we had much more clothing than we could even display, there will be a Part 2...

June 13 from 9 - 2, as part of the Junction-wide yard sale, we'll put out all the rest of our donated women's wear. This time, just for fun, it'll cost $10 for all you can stuff into the biggest Wise Daughters paper bag. Once again, 100% of the proceeds will benefit the shelter.
