Yard & Yardage will return to the Slocan Valley Threads Guild on Sunday, April 24 from 10 am to 2 pm! Reasonably-priced fabric, yarn, notions, craft supplies, equipment, patterns and books will be outdoors under shade tents along with sweets, savouries, coffee, tea, soups and breads. An exciting feature will be the sale of perennials from members’ gardens. The lawn of the Guild will be transformed into a garden centre with pots of everything from raspberry canes to flower starts. Experienced gardeners, reference books and makers of all kinds will be available to inspire and answer questions. 

It is time to come out to celebrate the new season and visit with friends, neighbours and like-minded crafters you haven’t seen in a while. Memberships will be available. For $10 per year, you can join a community of over 100 makers who stay connected through a weekly newsletter and love to re-purpose, re-cycle and create with fibre.

In late October, a similar outdoor event called ‘Yarn & Yardage’ was tried and found to be very successful. Since then, members have been collecting, sorting  and pricing donations in hopes that a return of this popular spring tradition would be possible after its two-year absence. 

Admission is free. No dogs please. Plan a Sunday drive to 7112 Perry’s Back Road at Highway 6, five minutes north of Winlaw. You never know what you’ll discover.
