Shoe Bank Canada’s Annual Shoe Drive is underway again for the month of April.
The Slocan Valley Threads Guild’s annual Yard and Yardage sale will happen on Sunday, April 28 from 10 am to 2 pm. Come inside our schoolhouse off Highway 6 at Perry’s Bridge Road to explore a treasure trove of fabric, notions, patterns, yarn and craft supplies. Our members have been collecting donations all year to offer at reasonable prices. You never know what you will discover! Be sure to enjoy the work of members on display on the walls as you look for bargains; we’ve had a productive winter at the Guild!
Outside the building, our yard becomes a garden centre where you can find just the perennial or start you need for your garden or home. Many books will be available to inspire gardening and all types of making. You will find some equipment for sale and boxes full of items – yours for a donation. Guild members will be happy to help you get what you need and answer your garden and crafting questions. We are a community of nearly 100 makers who love to repurpose, recycle and create with fibres.
On your way in the gate you can buy a cup of coffee or tea and muffin to start your day. When you get hungry for lunch we have a lovely tea room set up inside with delicious soups and stews, savouries and sweets. All proceeds will be used to support our Guild and the many classes we offer. Sign up for a membership while you are there for only ten dollars a year. Admission is free. No dogs please. Phone Lynnda at 355-2267 for more information.
