Hand dyed scarves, pyjamas, knit clothing for American dolls, soaps, pillowcases, book covers, preserves, cat toys, knit socks, and Christmas ornaments are just a few of the handmade gifts available.
Admission and refreshments are free for everybody, so bring a friend or two. Enjoy delicious Christmas goodies provided by the Guild Executives. Pick up a complimentary ballot to win a door prize. Bring your cash, as most vendors won’t have machines to accept credit or debit.

Hope to see you tonight!
I have created a series of blank greeting cards using some of my hand dyed fabrics, and embellishments collected over the years.
The note cards are a fun way to use some of my precious fabric pieces that are too small to stitch with (although some of my friends would not agree!)
Shells were collected from beach vacations. I purposely chose only shells that had a small hole, with the idea that I would stitch them onto some artwork in the future.
I love the beautiful and nuanced look of Oakshott Cottons. The warp and weft are woven with two different colours, you can see the turquoise and blue in the piece above. So much more interesting than just a solid!
A vintage linen napkin with a lovely finished edge in fuchsia is combined with cheesecloth and a heart. I call this one Twisted Heart!
Indigo paired with glass beads and ribbon to celebrate your accomplishments.
These blank mixed media note cards will be available soon in an upcoming holiday market.
Spent the day outdoors this past Saturday participating in Community Centre 55 Fall Fair. It was a beautiful hot day – more like summer than the beginning of fall! The tent held hand-made items by @peggythompson, @amysplacehandmade and myself.
Peggy is hanging up her tie-dyed t-shirts and had her beautiful jewellery is on display at the rear of the tent. Soy candles, bath salts and soaps scented with essential oils created by Amy from Amy’s Place HandMade were available. Her teacup candles are so beautiful!
Hand dyed shibori scarves are hanging, catching the breeze!
l brought a selection of pouches made with hand dyed canvas and repurposed leather. Also on display are some of the quilted art postcards made with hand dyed fabrics and beading.
Indigo table runners, dinner sized napkins, and pillow cases are on display.
Pillows made with indigo dyed cotton, cotton/linen.
It was great to spend some time outside talking to people from the neighbourhood.
Summer is a time for enjoying the outdoors. This Labour Day weekend spend time at the new Trillium Park at Ontario Place. I will be displaying my hand dyed original scarves along with 30 other vendors at the Urban Market. This event coincides with the 150th Anniversary Festival at Ontario Place.
