Field trip! A visit to Stitch

Hi friends, Earlier this week, Tina, Lisa and I had a chance to take a little field trip. Get three craft bloggers together outside of the city, and you can probably guess what happens next: we Google-map directions to the closest craft store. This time, we ended up at Stitch, a lovely little shop in Jordan Village, Ontario. stitch This little brick house is chock-a-block full of fabric, yarn, notions and books. fabric The fabric choices range from traditional, country-style patterns to 1930's-style feedsacks to modern prints from designers like Amy Butler, Anna Maria Horner and Denyse Schmidt. yarn My resolve was sorely tested as I surveyed the shelves and shelves of yarn (this is just a fraction of what's available) – including Malabrigo, Noro and Handmaiden yarns in luscious colours and fibre blends. workspace At the back of the shop we found this work table, plus several couches and comfy chairs. We were disappointed to learn we were several days too early for the lively Friday night stitch night. (Did I mention the fireplace? Oh yes: there's a fireplace.) books And books! I couldn't even begin to capture the shelves and shelves of books, but you can see one of my favourites – More Last-Minute Knitted Gifts – peeking in at the bottom of that photo. The lovely displays were the icing on the cake. Aren't these great? darling-displays advent-calendars (You know how much I love Advent calendars.) pumpkinHee hee! Do you have a favourite local craft store you'd love to share with Canadians from coast to coast? Please leave a comment and tell us about it!
