We will be doing some significant website updates in a week or so, including a new shopping cart that will work much better with mobile devices. Apologies in advance for any down time, which will hopefully be for no more than a day or two. We think it will likely be around November 11/12.
Our next Spin-In is on Sunday, November 24. See below for details.
We now have our November/December WORKSHOPS listed on the shopping cart.
The 3-day Coat Workshop is sold out but we will be offering a second one sometime in the New Year.
Our NOVEMBER fibre SALE feature is
Ashford Corriedale Roving/Top at 25% OFF!
Ashford just added two new dyed Corriedale colours, Slate and Coral. Click the links above or look in the cart under Fibres>Dyed Roving & Top>Wool and Fibres>Natural Roving & Top>Wool – Imported
Corriedale wool is extremely popular with NEEDLE FELTERS, as it has more “oomph” and body than Fine Merino. Spinners and wet felters also love it for outerwear or functional items, wall hangings, etc.
Take a look at our remaining KOLLAGE KNITTING NEEDLES, now on clearance at 25% OFF.
The Kollage Needle company went out of business, though apparently another company has purchased the equipment and will be starting production soon. These are in the cart under the Gadgets, Tools & More category, or click the link above.
WHAT’S NEW at The FIBRE GARDEN?
WE MOVED in 2017: Our new address and new local phone number are listed down below.
November 1/19 — We are now Dealers for LENDRUM SPINNING WHEELS, made right here in Canada!! These are live on our shopping cart now, just click the link or head to the Spinning category and you will find them. Honestly, the wheels have been flying out of here. We’re waiting on a new shipment of wheels and accessories which will hopefully be here in about a week. If you’re after a repair or accessory we don’t yet have listed please e-mail or call us with order inquiries, contact info is listed below.
Our fall workshops are in full swing. If the schedule does not work for you, consider booking a PRIVATE WORKSHOP for 4 to 6 people, depending on the project. Feel free to drop us an e-mail or call the shop if you would like to know more. Contact info is down below.
The WOODSTOCK FLEECE FESTIVAL was extremely busy this year. Many thanks to those that visited our booth and purchased from us. It’s always especially nice to meet our online customers in person.
Shopping carts for sites like ours are not especially intuitive or flexible. Though we have many items set as FREE SHIPPING, the cart seems to sometimes only allow Store Pickup as the shipping option. WE WILL SHIP THESE ITEMS if you wish! Just leave us a note when you place your order, to confirm you wish to have them shipped. This applies to many things like Ashford Tools & Equipment, Majacraft, Louet and others.
To clarify our FREE SHIPPING policy: this applies only to tools and equipment individually priced over $100. Combination orders for tools & equipment plus fibre or other non-free shipping products will be charged shipping for the non-free portion of the order. That’s because we are often shipping the equipment directly from our supplier and other items from here at our store.
Our FALL & WINTER HOURS are the same as usual, listed below. If you’re looking for our store, our new sign is not up yet but the brightly-painted spinning wheels beside the front sidewalk should help you to find us!
Our next SPIN-IN DAY will be Sunday, November 24 during regular store hours, drop-in style. Spin-Ins are free, just bring your wheel or drop spindle. We have plenty of fibre or bring your own. Spin-Ins are social occasions and we will provide coffee, tea and cookies. Share your interest in spinning with others, and maybe pick up some tips and tricks at the same time! We have plenty of room for drop-ins.
Did you know we accept E-transfers for order payment for all Canadian regions? To do this (instead of using PayPal) just select the “check/money order” payment option during checkout, then send the E-transfer to email@example.com and then send us an e-mail as well with the answer to the security question you have selected. This option is great for those that don’t use credit cards but do online banking. Unfortunately E-tranfers cannot be sent from outside of Canada.
THE FIBRE GARDEN is owned and operated by Alan McLean and John Valleau and it lives right on Main Street in historic 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.

Please note: if you are using GPS to get here, our address might well pop up as Lincoln or as Jordan Station. The Village of Jordan is where we are. We’re about half way down the street between Cave Spring Winery and The Jordan House Pub, across the street from the museum.
For those in the area or within driving distance, we welcome you to visit our shop in person. Our friends from afar can enjoy online shopping with us. Just click on the SHOP ONLINE! button on the top menu bar. We have the majority of our fibres, spinning wheels, spindles, looms, gadgets and tools loaded for you to see.
