Hello Craft Fans,

June's been busy around here, between making sock monkeys for Clowns Without Borders and taking part in the Junction yard sale for the Redwood Shelter - both very successful events.

But wait, there's more!

This Saturday, Tiffany Thornton (formerly of Whimsy) will be in the downstairs space launching her Global Baby line of international quality infant wear, starting at 11:00.

We've got a great recession-busting idea that will save you lots of money come holiday season. It's Christmas in July! Learn to handmake 3 different gifts in each of two afternoon sessions - so much more personal than store bought. And on July 8, learn the ancient art of bookbinding.

It's been all about the adults up until now, but I guess the kids should get to play too! Anna Redish is offering a 2 week morning craft camp here starting July 6. See website for details.

Finally, I'm happy to announce that the shop is now listed with Toronto the Better (, a consumer group that recognizes ethical businesses.

Hope to see you all in the shop soon!

Mary Breen, Owner
