WHAT’S NEW at The FIBRE GARDEN?
May 1 – we were away on vacation in Ireland back in April. There were just WAY too many cute little baby lambs all over the place, it seemed like every other field we saw had a flock of sheep! It was a lovely break, our first vacation together since before we opened the shop almost 6 years ago. Thanks so much to our friend Ted Myatt for holding the fort in our absence, and looking after our dog Mabel.
May is always one of our busier months here in the shop, and we’re stocking up for the spring and summer on fibre as well as back dyeing more yarns. John will be dyeing up a bunch of colours of our SPARKLE-ON, which is best done in one big push since we find sparkle all over the house for weeks after, even the dog gets sparkly. Look for updates in the sparkle listings on the cart shortly. Something new that just arrived (will take some time to get on the cart though) is DYED BLUE-FACED LEICESTER carded rovings from Louet. It’s always struck us as odd that none of our suppliers offered dyed BFL, but now finally we have some.
Lastly, apologies for the inevitable price changes we have had to make recently. All of our suppliers raised prices this year across the board due to the exchange rates mainly. So much of our product comes from overseas so when the dollar is doing poorly there is not much that can be done.
THE FIBRE GARDEN is owned and operated by Alan McLean and John Valleau and it lives in our historic home in Jordan Village, Ontario, Canada. We are in the heart of Niagara Wine Country and there are plenty of things to see and do in the village and surroundings.
The shop carries a very wide selection of natural breed-specific rovings, dyed rovings and top, weaving and knitting yarns (many dyed right here by THE DYEGUY), felting supplies, dyes, natural dyes & mordants, spinning wheels, drop spindles, and other fibre gadgets. We are thrilled to be Dealers for Majacraft, Louet and Ashford spinning wheels, looms and other products.
Our regular year-round Store Hours are:
- Thursday, Friday, Saturday — 11am to 5pm
- Sunday — 12 noon to 4pm
Our SPIN-INS are going back to SUNDAYS!
The next one will be on Sunday, May 17 with two sittings: 10am and 1pm. No need to book a chair, just bring your wheel or spindle and come on over! Our Spin-ins moved for awhile to every Saturday but it was a disaster and hardly anybody ever came, so we hope that going back to Sundays and less frequently will bring more people out.
Spin-ins are a fun way to meet and socialize with others that share your craft. Spinners at ALL levels are welcome, even absolute beginners. Spin-ins are FREE!!
THE FIBRE GARDEN is located at 3818 Main Street, Jordan, Ontario, Canada, L0R 1S0. firstname.lastname@example.org
