We had great success at Yard and Yardage this year. The weather cooperated and the  popular event brought out a big crowd.  

The back story of course it that none of this would be possible without amazing community support.  Donations of fabric, notions, and yarn came from far and wide. West Kootenay communities such as Nakusp, New Denver, Nelson, Trail, Rossland, of course the Valley responded to our requests.  Thank you to everyone who donated, there would be no sale without your generosity. 

Individuals and organizations also lent tents and tables, enabling our popular outdoor venue. We were all smiling in the sunshine.

Thank you also to all who donated time. The jobs of measuring and pricing fabric, sorting yarns and packaging notions goes on for months. Gardening members dug, split and potted perennial plants. Members baked sweets and savoury items and made delicious soups and stews to offer for lunch. Just before the event there was a crew who put up the tents. Sale day saw volunteers starting early to bring everything out for  display.

Our community supported us again by showing up, shopping and celebrating a fine spring sale.  A huge thank you to everyone who participated!
